Nikkita Lyons made an impact upon her NXT debut in February 2022. She quickly rose through the ranks and became one of the most popular stars on the white and gold brand. It appears that her time in NXT is coming to an end.

Nikkita Lyons was the victim of a sneak attack on NXT tonight. She was seen grabbing her ankle and screaming in pain in the parking lot. Indi Hartwell and Lyra Valkyria immediately came to check on her.

Oh no what happened to @nikkita_wwe?! #WWENXT

NXT cameras showed Zoey Stark leaving the parking lot in the wake of the incident. Stark turned heel on Lyons after the duo lost the NXT Women’s Championship match to Katana Chance and Kayden Carter.


Vic Joseph revealed later during the show that Nikkita Lyons was rushed to a medical facility after the sneak attack. It remains to be seen if she will appear on the show in the foreseeable future.

The injury angle could be Shawn Michaels way of sending Nikkita Lyons to the main roster. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we will come back with more updates on the Lioness of NXT.
