SPOILER WARNING FOR MAE YOUNG CLASSIC! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
WWE had big plans for Tegan Nox before her injury at the Mae Young Classic tapings in August.
Nox suffered a left leg injury while facing Rhea Ripley in the quarterfinals of the tournament. Nox was set to win that match but Ripley won due to the injury and went on to lose to Io Shirai in the semifinals. Shirai vs. Toni Storm will take place at WWE Evolution as the finals. Nox also suffered a torn ACL in 2017, forcing her to miss the first MYC tournament.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Nox was actually the probable winner of the 2018 MYC, and that Storm winning was not locked in. Storm vs. Nox was scheduled to be the finals at Evolution until Nox suffered the injury, and officials were considering Nox to win the whole tournament. This would have set her up for a strong run in WWE NXT.
