Shotzi Blackheart was certainly one of the mainstays of NXT’s women’s division during her time there. Her character work and in-ring prowess made her an instant hit with fans. Now it seems she explained the reason for her absence from WWE television as well.

Blackheart turned heel a few months ago on Friday Night Smackdown and had largely engaged in a feud with Sasha Banks. She underwent a major character change as well.

Blackheart has been away from WWE television for a while now and it seems there is a good reason for that. While speaking to Mondragon Chiropractic, Blackheart revealed that she is currently dealing with a very painful lower back injury.

“Right now, my lower back (hurts). I actually got x-rays on it. It’s nothing crazy, but they said that my pelvic bone is tilted forward. They’ve been giving me rehab exercises and stuff. I’m way better than a month ago, for sure.

Ten. It was pretty bad. I had a match and then I woke up the next morning and it was really hard for me to get up. I slid off of the bed onto the floor and I couldn’t even put pressure onto my knees or crawl. I’ve been off for a little bit.”

It is not known when Shotzi Blackheart will be recovering from the injury but fans certainly hope it will be sooner rather than later.
