*SPOILERS* NXT Superstar Addresses Injury At Last Night’s Mae Young Classic Tapings

Published

on

*WARNING – If you don’t want any spoilers, back out now*

In case you missed it, WWE was back at Full Sail University last night for the second day of tapings for this year’s Mae Young Classic. The Semi-Finals of the tournament saw two NXT Superstars clashing as Rhea Ripley took on Tegan Nox for a spot in the Finals at WWE Evolution in October. If you remember, Tegan (formerly known as Nixon Newell) was scheduled for last year’s Mae Young Classic, however suffered a torn ACL and was forced to withdraw.

During the match, Nox went for an outside dive onto Ripley that did not go as planned, as she suffered a leg injury that forced the match to stop briefly. Tegan attempted to fight through it and the match continued, however it didn’t last long as she screamed out in pain after taking a dropkick. The match was quickly stopped and awarded to Ripley, with Tegan needing medical attention and help to get to the back. While no specifics on the injury have yet to be revealed, the early word is that she may have suffered a broken leg.

Due to this, Tegan has received an outpouring of support on social media and responded on Twitter very early this morning with the following:

“This isn’t how I planned to finish the Mae Young Classic in any form but the last 2 days have been the best experience of my life, despite the obvious! My match with Rhea is something I’ve wanted for a while because, damn that girls is talented (even if she is very moody *laughing emoji*). Freak accidents happen, it’s part of the job but to hear that she had a killer match with one of the best wrestlers in the world, Io Shirai made my heart swell with happiness *hearts*.

This is more mentally draining than it is physically but you can guarantee that this isn’t going to keep me down! I have the best friends and support system a girl could ever ask for!

I worked so hard for over a year to be able to compete in this year’s MYC, so you know for a fact, I’m fighting back stronger than ever!

Every message I’ve received tonight on twitter, Facebook, Instagram, text etc has been absolutely overwhelming! The fact that my hospital room was full of people really warms my heart and honestly meant the absolute world to me!

I said it before and I’ll say it again, everything happens for a reason, so no matter what the full extent of the injury is, I’ll be back and I’ll be Shinier than ever”

WWE Rumors: Possible Plans For WWE Evolution Main Event

Published

on

Ronda Rousey WWE RAW Debut

After the news that WWE’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view, Evolution, on October 28th from the Nassau Coliseum will feature a match of past vs. present when Alexa Bliss goes one-on-one with WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus, there’s reportedly been early talk of another such match to main event the show.

According to Dave Meltzer on the newest Wrestling Observer Radio, the main event discussion right now is for Ronda Rousey to take on Nikki Bella in an effort to bring more mainstream media attention to the event:

“So the plan for Ronda Rousey early in the week was Nikki Bella. They’re the two most famous women’s stars in the company and they should be the main event of the first women’s pay-per-view. They are the two best at getting mainstream attention and that was the idea.

There were other options batted around like everything, it could change tomorrow but that was the idea.”

While plans can always change on a daily basis as noted by Meltzer, the thought behind this would be to give Rousey another ‘dream match scenario’ early on in her WWE tenure, especially considering the long-term in-ring future of Nikki Bella due to her battle with neck injuries. Additionally, it’s also being said that the angle could be setup as early as tonight at SummerSlam.

Nikki is of course no longer a full-time competitor after having another scare with her surgically repaired neck in the lead-up to her WrestleMania 33 match last year when she teamed with John Cena to face The Miz and Maryse. Her last match came back in January of this year, taking part in the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble where she made it to the final two before being eliminated by Asuka.

Quotes c/o RingsideNews

EA’s Take: Let the pissing and moaning begin (actually, it already has). While I personally don’t care to see the match and think Nikki should just give it up already with the shape her neck is in, that doesn’t mean I don’t understand the decision should this be the case. What better way to draw more attention to the company’s first all-women’s show than with the two most mainstream Superstars? Lest we forget, Nikki was vastly improved in the ring during her last full-time run, so it’s not as if she can’t have a good match. I think people complain just for the sake of complaining at this point.

WWE Rumors: Speculation On An Asuka Heel Turn In The Near Future

Published

on

After going undefeated in the WWE for 914 days, SmackDown Live Superstar Asuka has seen her stock in the eyes of some fans drop considerably, succumbing to multiple losses this year at the hands of Charlotte Flair and current SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella.

While ‘The Empress Of Tomorrow’ was about as hot as any Superstar during her historic run from NXT to the main roster, the entirety of her WWE career has been as a babyface. However, that could very well be changing in the near future.

According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, there’s been talk within WWE of turning Asuka heel. There’s no word on when the switch could take place and very likely wouldn’t be tonight at SummerSlam, as she’s not scheduled to appear. However, it’s been added that WWE does in-fact have plans for her even though she is no longer being booked as unbeatable over the past number of months.

Currently, there’s speculation that the turn could take place before the company’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view, Evolution, taking place on Sunday, October 28th from the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.

EA’s Take: I’d certainly be all for an Asuka heel turn, she needs something to happen as all the momentum she had previously is now gone. Not that it’s any surprise, we’ve seen multiple examples of performers who have had a long-running winning streak lose their luster once it comes to an end. Ryback, Goldberg and even Wrath in WCW immediately come to mind. So as I said, I’d be good with a heel turn for her. We already saw it teased previously in NXT during her feud with Bayley, so why not pull the trigger this time.
