Kaia McKenna has announced that she has suffered an injury.
Kaia McKenna is a fast-rising star in the world of women's independent wrestling. Being trained by Seth Rollins’ Black and Brave Academy, she has already competed in promotions like Beyond wrestling and against Thunder Rosa on an episode of AEW Dark: Elevation.
Now, she has taken to Twitter to reveal that she has suffered a labrum tear and a fracture that will keep her out of action until the latter portion of 2022.
As tough as it is, I will be out of action until Fall/Winter of 2022. While my appointment today was good, (I did awesome at PT/ rehab!) I do have a labrum tear that needs attention and a fracture that until it's fixed will continue to put my shoulder in a vulnerable position. It was a hard choice! I could have opted to be cleared and been back next month while doing PT, but to return to the ring with an 85% chance of having another dislocation didn't seem worth it. Chances are I'd have a match or two and be right back where I started in this mess, but worse. I still hope to see all of you around at shows! Wrestling brings me such joy and keeping a good mental state through this process will be key. I still wanna see all my good friends and fans, so please don't hesitate to say hello if I'm around. So this witchy is gonna get fixed up, do a lot of rehab, and be back better than ever.
She last competed in December on Beyond Uncharted Territory, losing to Megan Bayne.
