Tegan Nox returns to action at NXT live event

Tegan Nox returns to action at NXT live event

Tegan Nox made her return to in-ring competition on Thursday night at a house show in Florida. The Wales native teamed up with Jessi Kamea to take on Aliyah and Vanessa Borne.

In her first match in close to a year, Nox and Kamea defeated their opponents, as Tegan pinned the Borne following a fireman carry into an Ace Cutter.

Tegan Nox’s last match was on Aug. 9, 2018, in the quarterfinals of the second annual Mae Young Classic, where she wrestled Rhea Ripley. Nox was reportedly slated to win and move on to semifinals. Unfortunately, she suffered an injury during the match, which caused a stoppage and granted Ripley the win via referee’s decision.

After the match aired in October, Nox revealed she dislocated her kneecap, tore her MCL and LCL, completely tore ACL and both meniscus, sustained bone contusions and a Segond Fracture on my left tibia. It was one of the heartbreaking moments of the year.

Tegan Nox signed with WWE in 2017 but a torn ACL kept her out of the first Mae Young Classic and sidelined her for a year. She worked so hard to return to the ring only to hit another wall during the second women’s tournament.

Hopefully, now that she is back, she can pick up where she left off in 2018. It will be interesting to see if she stays on NXT or if she appears on NXT UK in search of a rematch against Rhea Ripley. For now, we’ll have to wait and see.
