— Mercedes Mone, formerly Sasha Banks in WWE, suffered what appears to be a serious injury to her foot during a match at last night’s NJPW Resurgence against Willow Nightingale in the main event. Mone was attempting a spot from the top rope where she would fall onto the floor effectively clotheslining Nightingale on the rope, however, she looked to have landed awkwardly and immediately began favoring her right leg. It soon became apparent that she could put no weight on that leg.
— Mone made it back into the ring and the match lasted another minute, including a confused sequence where Nightingale hit a powerbomb on Mone, went for the pin, but Mone never kicked out and the ref for some reason didn’t count the three. He then signaled that Mone had gotten a shoulder up, so the spot was repeated and this time, he counted the three.

— After the match, Mone confirmed the injury without getting into any detail but according to pwinsider.com, the word making the rounds backstage is that she broke her right ankle.
