The Mae Young Classic consisted of some of the most talented female pro wrestlers in the world (that WWE could book for the tournament) competing in order to earn the honor of winning such an important tournament. Vanessa Kraven competed in the event as well, and although she didn’t win — people certainly took notice of her.
Unfortunately, Kraven suffered an awful set of injuries to her ankle and knee during an Acclaim Pro Wrestling event in Ottawa earlier this week and the prognosis doesn’t sound good.
Kraven was defeated by Lacey Lane in the first round of the MYC, but plenty of fans were impressed by her tenacity. It will take a lot of fortitude in order to get back into the ring in a speedy fashion as Kraven updated fans on her status.
“So, friends and fans, unfortunately my lower leg/ankle requires fixation surgery. My fibula will be getting a plate and screws and a piece of my ankle will be reattached with pins. Surgery will be on Friday. I was planning on coming to Renfrew for the show on Saturday if I was only in a cast, but surgery requires me to at least take a few days to get through the initial unpleasantness. I’ll have to wear a boot after the operation for anywhere up to 2 months. Could be off sooner if things go well!
I will still be in attendance at both C4 and the joint Smash/FLQ shows on Nov. 16th and 17th. Come say hi and buy some new 8x10s or a t-shirt to support me during my downtime. Every little bit is appreciated. As for a projected ring return date, I don’t have one just yet. I want to focus on regaining strength, mobility, range of motion and do a good amount of physio before anything else.”
Hopefully, she will be able to heal up soon and get back to work. As a professional wrestler, she needs to be able to stay healthy in order to keep making dates and this kind of thing isn’t anything that someone schedules for.
I am alive and out of surgery!
Heading to the recovery room now for a bit. ✌🏽
