During the WWE NXT live event in Dade City, Florida, it appears that there has been another injury, although specific details are limited at this time.
Fans in attendance during the January 12, 2024 event have reported that the match involving Cora Jade, who wrestled NXT Women’s Champion Lyra Valkyria in the main event, was stopped. While the exact nature of the injury has not been officially confirmed by WWE, there are indications that it may be related to a knee injury.
According to some fans in attendance, there was a fake knee injury spot early in the match, but later on, Jade appeared to land awkwardly on her leg, leading to a botched pin attempt by Valkyria. This incident appeared to be quite serious.
Photos posted by a user on Twitter showed the referee and trainer checking on Jade after the incident. Jade’s recent changes in appearance and her push on TV suggested that she might have been in line for a future NXT Women’s Title opportunity. She had returned to NXT TV just last month after a four-month hiatus.
11:10 PM UPDATE: Following the match, Cora Jade took to Twitter and posted a cryptic GIF. The GIF had a caption that reads: “I laugh to keep from crying.”
Injuries can be unfortunate and disruptive in the world of professional wrestling, and fans are likely hoping for the best for Jade’s recovery. Stay tuned to Ringside News for further updates on her condition as they become available.
