As first reported by Pro Wrestling Sheet, Nia Jax looks set to miss up to a year of action as she goes under the knife to repair a set of nasty ACL tears in both of her knees.
Jax, who unsuccessfully competed for the WWE Women's Tag Team Titles at Sunday's WrestleMania 35, has apparently been working through the injury, as a confirmatory social media post by the performer made clear:
By the sounds of it, Nia has been performing with damaged ligaments for the past twelve months, which can only have exacerbated the situation.
Recovery from ACL surgery can take anywhere from two to six months, though there is generally a prognosis of around nine months to return to pre-injury condition. In terms of adequately rehabilitation for a return to in-ring action, this can extend to upwards of a year.
We wish Jax all the best with her upcoming surgeries, and that she returns only when she's fully healed.
Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know).
He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
