"I had always felt invincible. Working through minor injuries was something I never thought twice about because love what I get to do.

On December 7th in Green Bay during the last NXT Road Loop of 2018, I planted my foot awkwardly after a kick and I tore my ACL. I put off posting this because I wanted to focus on being home for the holidays and to be honest, I dreaded having to even mention this as I didn't want to let any of you down. That, over everything, was and is the most heartbreaking feeling in the world.

Unfortunately, this will take me out for a bit. I'm surrounded by amazing people, doctors, trainers, and you. It helps more than I can explain, especially being so far away from my family. The amount of positivity & support I have received already has been so overwhelming. It's going to be a tough ride, mentally and physically. I know that. The last thing I want is any sympathy...but hear me when I say this; Within my whole being, I know for sure I will be back stronger than ever. I will hit the ground, running. That's a promise.

'Above all, don't fear the difficult moments. The best comes from them.'"
