Nikkita Lyons was first featured on Women of Wrestling, from 2019 to 2021. However, she made her jump to NXT right in the middle of the NXT 2.0 transition period. Her infamous split drop into a pin, become a meme on the internet very fast. This helped her gain popularity with the fans watching NXT.
This is not the first tear that she has suffered in her career. Nikkita Lyons suffered a partial tear of her MCL back in May of last year. She was back pretty soon, ready to contend for the NXT Women’s championship, but was unable to capture it.
We certainly hope Nikkita Lyons can make a healthy and swift recovery. These kinds of injuries, the variance of how long you might be out, could be months of difference.
