Yulisa Leon revealed on the September 13th episode of WWE NXT in a backstage segment with Sanag and Valentina Feroz that “it’s torn” and she’s going to be out of action for nine months. She had a brace on her right knee.
Yulisa and Valentina wrestled on NXT and NXT Level Up, with their most recent match happening on the August 2nd episode of NXT, where they worked a Fatal 4-Way elimination tag for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles.
In a post on Instagram, she noted that she underwent successful surgery. She wrote the following in the caption:
“I can’t say the things I’m going through in this moment are easy. 15 years as an athlete and I’d never been in a situation like this but I’m really grateful for the support of the public, and the support of my family who has always been with me giving me the strength I need in every test life life has for me. I’m pretty sure that’s what helped me to become the woman I am now.
I’m not going to lie, I feel broken but not defeated. Corinthians 4:8-9 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
This is my first surgery and I can tell that in every hard moment I’ve been through and every tear I’ve shed in this time, I feel more protected and loved than ever and that’s why I want to thank again to each person who has sent me messages of strength and support. , you are making this process so much easier with all your love and positivity!
I am sure that this stage will bring a completely new Yulisa ready to continue leaving her heart above a ring and of course dancing in the pure style of Yulisa Leon, your favorite Latina next to my war partner and friend @valentinaferozwwe.”
We wish her a speedy recovery.
