Rachael Evers Confirms Torn ACL

Bad news for Rachael Evers.

At the July 27 NXT live event in Fort Pierce, FL, Rachael Evers suffered a knee injury that caused her bout Lacey Lane to be stopped in the middle of it. Evers was helped to the back and it was reported by Dave Meltzer that she "blew out her knee."

Evers has taken to social media to confirm the worst.

Professional wrestling is the love of my life. My heart is at home when I'm in that ring sharing moments with you all.

On Saturday night, my heart broke a little bit. At our NXT show in Florida, I tore my ACL. Those three letters have caused me to feel so much pain, disappointment and fear.

I never thought that I would have to face this challenge and be ripped away from what makes my heart thrive-what I'm born to do.

But here I am.

That same passion that fueled me in the ring, will now push me to return to it. The unsettling, sorrowful, aching feelings will pass. I have incredible people in my corner; people who love me and believe in me and that means so much.

I have surgery on Tuesday and Wednesday. I begin my journey  back to my home-the ring.

As a wise woman once said, "I am a goddess, a glorious female warrior." So now its time to prove it.

There is no timetable for Evers' return.
