Tegan Nox Says WWE Performance Center Provided Her Top Notch Mental Health Support

WWE's Performance Center is very into people's mental health according to Tegan Nox.

Signing with WWE in April 2017, Nox tore her ACL right before the Mae Young Classic. After being sidelined for nearly a year, she returned in April 2018 and tore her ACL, MCL, LCL and meniscus, in addition to dislocating her patella in the 2018 Mae Young Classic. Nox sustained yet another torn ACL on September 2020 and returned the following July.

The former WWE Superstar recently appeared on Taylor Wilde's Wilde On Podcast and shared that she was in a bad place after her second operation but that after expressing her feelings to one of the coaches was in a therapy session within hours. She said the following:

"What I've found that the Performance Center is really good for is, they are very into people's mental health. At one point, during the second knee surgery, I was in a really bad place and I told one of the coaches. Within hours, I was in a therapy session with one of their people. It was also so quick. They just want to help make your mind right. If your mind is not right, nothing else is going to be right. It's good to have a place where you can do that sort of stuff. 'Oh, I'm having a bad day.' They give me this therapy, so I'm going to take full advantage of it. It helped a lot. It helped so much. The medical facility is great, all my doctors are fantastic, but having that mental health is next level. You never experience that one the Indies or anywhere else. It was really cool to see how quickly they moved on it."

Unfortunately, on Thursday, November 18, Nox was one of the numerous talents released by WWE. She had recently been drafted to Raw in the 2021 WWE Draft, splitting her up from her tag team partner, Shotzi. Nox's last televised match was on August 20, when she and Shotzi defeated the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions, Natalya and Tamina, in a Championship Contenders Match.
