Nikkita took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal that she suffered a partial tear on her MCL. The injury forced her to reconsider her plans for the tournament. Thankfully, she won’t be needing surgery and is currently rehabing.

Nikkita was replaced by Tiffany Stratton who proceeded to the finals after beating Fallon Henley. Daddy’s Little Rich Girl will square off against Roxanne Perez in the tournament finals.

For those not in the know, Roxanne Perez beat Lash Legend to advance into the finals. The winner will get a shot at the NXT Women’s Champion. We hope that Nikkita gets better soon.
