During a Southside Wrestling tag team match on March 10th, 2017, former WWE Women’s champion Melina suffered a knee injury.
After hitting a crossbody off of the top rope, Perez was pinned and quickly rushed backstage. The injury was confirmed to be a dislocated kneecap.
Today, the Queen of Southside champion gave us an update via her Facebook page:
Melina is allegedly going to be given the OK to wrestle in around 2 months time, and it appears that she is as ready as ever to get back at it!
Once she rejoined the Independent scene, the A-List Superstar made her name known as she managed to capture a championship – on her first night back in the ring! Here Perez competed in a Southside Wrestling Entertainment tournament in which she defeated the likes of Lana Austin, Nixon Newell and former champion Kay Lee Ray to be crowned the Queen of Southside.
Alongside her ongoing success at Southside Wrestling, the Hell Cat has defeated the likes of Alex Windsor, Dahlia Black, Jinny, Shanna and many others across the globe. The Paparazzi Princess has competed for companies such as Pro Wrestling Chaos, Australian Wrestling Entertainment, Over the Top Wrestling and more.
