Nikkita Lyons quickly rose through the ranks to become one of the most popular stars on the NXT roster. The Lioness of NXT earned multiple shots at the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship alongside Zoey Stark, but fell short each time.

Nikkita Lyons was mysteriously taken out inside NXT’s notorious parking lot on the January 24, 2023, episode of the white and gold brand. It was later revealed that Nikkita had suffered a torn MCL and would need some time off from NXT television for surgery and recovery.

Nikkita Lyons took to Twitter on Tuesday and revealed she had a successful surgery. The Lioness of NXT thanked her fans for their support, and promised to return stronger than ever. She put out a photo of her fresh out of surgery for the internet wrestling community to see.

Surgery was a success ✨ Thank you deeply to the WWE Universe, my Lyon Pride for all the love and support you show. I’ll be back stronger than I’ve ever been. 🙏🏼 #ReadyToPounce Also a big thank you to the wonderful surgeons, doctors and nurses.

Nikkita Lyons was in a feud with Zoey Stark when she torn her MCL/ Meniscus. Stark reacted to her injury announcement with a dig of her own. The two turned rivals after Stark betrayed her partner on the November 8, 2022, edition of NXT.

Here’s hoping that Nikkita Lyons will recover quickly. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more from the world of pro wrestling.
