WWE.com reports that Beth Phoenix suffered a severely sprained left ankle during her match with Nikki Bella on RAW.
Beth will undergo an MRI, which will reveal the extent of the injury, though the company trainer thinks it’s a common ligament sprain.
Here is the WWE.com article:
Phoenix was limping visibly after she leapt from the ring apron to the floor during the championship encounter, which was contested in a Lumberjill Match. After the bout, WWE trainers assisted Phoenix to the locker room area.
According to Dr. Michael Sampson, the former Divas champion will undergo an MRI.
“It looks like she affected her anterior talofibular ligament, which is the most common injured ankle ligament on an inversion injury,” Sampson told WWE.com. “She has some swelling, [and] she’s having a hard time walking or ambulating on it. We’re going to need an MRI just to make sure there’s nothing else going on and see how we can treat it – if we need surgery or if we can do it conservatively.”
