Shayna Baszler suffered an injury on Sunday night at WWE Evolution and “The Queen of Spades” was spotted leaving NYCB LIVE with assistance from a crutch.
Bryan Alvarez revealed on Monday on F4WOnline’s Wrestling Observer Live that Baszler injured her ankle while wrestling Kairi Sane.
“Shayna injured her ankle during the match and I don’t know the extent of it. She was at the airport this morning on crutches,” Alvarez said.
“She is very much downplaying it because she’s Shayna Baszler and that is what MMA fighters do. She’s scheduled to be evaluated today and we’ll find out if it’s bad enough to keep her off the TakeOver show but something happened to her ankle in the match last night.”
In an update on the situation from Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline, Baszler was telling people that she was using the crutch as a minor precautionary measure because she tweaked her ankle, but it’s nothing serious.
Baszler beat Sane to become the first-ever two-time NXT Women’s Champion. NXT TakeOver: WarGames II takes place on Saturday, November 17 at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.
Here is a clip from the match.
