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. She is out of action due to injury and it appears she will still need more time to make her in-ring return.
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 torn MCL and would need some time off from NXT television for surgery and recovery.
Nikkita Lyons would then have successful surgery for the same. It has been six months since she was written off NXT television. As such, she took to Twitter and gave an update on her condition, revealing that she still needs more time to return to the squared circle.
