As reported over the weekend, Rachel Evers aka Rachael Ellering was one of two NXT superstars who suffered an injury at a live event this weekend.
Now, courtesy of Jim Varsallone on Facebook, we have an in-person account of what happened to Evers when she was injured and what transpired afterward:
“Want to wish WWE NXT Superstar Rachel Evers (Rachael Ellering) all the best. At NXT Fort Pierce on Saturday night, she injured her left leg in a match with Lacey Lane. Evers, playing the heel, was accompanied to the ring by The Virtuosa Deonna Purrazzo. When the injury occurred, Referee Jessika Carr quickly called for the match and gave the X sign, twice.
“The respectful crowd went silent as medical, referees, security and paramedics were on the scene. Eventually, she was able to bend her left leg gingerly in the ring, and the tough-minded competitor did not leave on a stretcher, which was there.
Hoping for the best, appreciative fans then applauded as she was carried to the back.”
Karen Q, who was also injured this weekend, provided a medical update on her Twitter. Read more about that here.
Here’s wishing both a speedy recovery.
