In a backstage segment with Sanaga and Valentina Feroz in the WWE NXT episode airing September 13, Yulisa Leon revealed that “it’s ripped” and she will be out for nine months. Her right knee was braced.
In their most recent match, which took place on the August 2 episode of NXT, Yulisa and Valentina worked on a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Tag for the NXT Women’s Tag Team titles.
She wrote in an Instagram post that her surgery went well. She added the caption, which read:
“I can’t say that the things I’m going through right now are easy. 15 years as an athlete and I had never been in a situation like this but I am very grateful for the support of the public and the support of my family who has always been with me and gives me the strength I need in every test the life that life has for me. I’m pretty sure that helped me become the woman I am today.
I’m not going to lie, I feel broken but not defeated. Corinthians 4:8-9 8 We are heavily pressured on all sides, but not crushed; bewildered, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; knocked down, but not destroyed.
This is my first surgery and I can tell that in every difficult moment I’ve been through and every tear I’ve shed during this time, I feel more protected and loved than ever and so once again I would like to thank everyone who has messaged me from strength and support. , you make this process so much easier with all your love and positivity!
I am sure this stage will bring a brand new Yulisa who is ready to continue to leave her heart above a ring and of course dance in the pure style of Yulisa Leon your favorite Latina next to my war partner and friend @valentinaferozwwe .”
