WWE’s NXT brand experienced a couple of hard losses over the weekend, but Rachael Ellering has the determination to make a return. However, she will still need surgery.

Ellering suffered a knee injury at a Florida house show on Friday. It was initially reported that she “blew out her knee,” but it is worse than that. Rachael Ellering updated fans about her current status and it’s not the best news. Because she will require surgery.

Professional wrestling is the love of my life. My heart is at home when I’m in that ring sharing moments with you all.

On Saturday night, my heart broke a little bit. At out NXT show in Florida, I tore my ACL. Those three letters have caused me to feel so much pain, disappointment and fear.


I never thought that I would have to face this challenge and be ripped away from what makes my heart thrive — what I’m born to do.

But here I am…

That same passion that fueled me in the ring, will now push me to return to it. The unsettling, sorrowful, aching feelings will pass. I have incredible people in my corner; people who love me and believe in me and that means so much.

I have surgery on Tuesday, and Wednesday I begin my journey back to my home — the ring.

As a wise woman once said, ‘I am a goddess, a glorious female warrior.’ So now its time to prove it.

Hopefully, fans will see Rachael Ellering make a return sooner than later, but you can never rush recovery from any injury.

She is fortunate to be an NXT Superstar so she will be surrounded by people encouraging her and making sure that the proper steps are taken. It is still incredibly disappointing as her NXT career was really taking off.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
