On Monday’s RAW, Beth Phoenix injured her ankle during her match with Nikki Bella, which allowed Bella to defeat her and capture the WWE Divas championship.
The WWE website spoke with the doctor that threated the Glamazon following her injury –
“It looks like she affected her anterior talofibular ligament, which is the most common injured ankle ligament on an inversion injury. She has some swelling, [and] she’s having a hard time walking or ambulating on it. We’re going to need an MRI just to make sure there’s nothing else going on and see how we can treat it – if we need surgery or if we can do it conservatively.”
Phoenix was less than two weeks away from becoming the longest reigning Divas champion in history before her loss.
