Today, Mickie James confirmed she tore her ACL and she will need to undergo surgery. This news comes after reports surfaced that she suffered an injury last weekend.
As we reported on Monday, James suffered an undisclosed knee injury at a live event on Saturday in Waco, Texas. The accident occurred during her match with Carmella, which forced them to cut the match short. Eventually, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer confirmed she will be out of action.
This afternoon, the six-time WWE Women’s Champion revealed the details of the injury and that she would need surgery via Instragram Live.
“I don’t know how long I’m gonna be out. I don’t know when I’m gonna have to get surgery, but it’s gonna be a while,” Mickie said in the video. (H/T Pro Wrestling Sheet)
This is unfortunate news. It’s unclear when Mickie James will return but we would like to wish her a swift recovery and a safe surgery.
