NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING: NJPW issues statement on Mercedes Mone’s injury

Posted on 5/25/123 by Colin Vassallo

A few days following her injury at the NJPW Resurgence show
this past Sunday, New Japan Pro-Wrestling issued a statement
on their website addressing what happened.

“During her match with Willow Nightingale in the main event
of Resurgence May 21, Mercedes Moné sustained an injury to
her right ankle. Moné underwent a thorough appraisal of her
injury immediately after her match and began treatment. New
Japan Pro-Wrestling joins fans in wishing Moné a full and
fast recovery,” the statement read.

Mone is believed to have broken her ankle, although that
hasn’t been 100% confirmed yet, and changed the ending of
the match on the fly as she was originally scheduled to win
the NJPW Strong Women’s title.

“I’m gonna heal and be back better than ever,” Mone tweeted
after the show, admitting it was not how she dreamt for the
night to go down.
