Wrestling veteran LuFisto has announced that she suffered an injury during last weekend’s (Dec 2nd) AWS show.
The reigning SHINE Champion made the announcement on her official website, sharing some of the details behind the injuries she sustained:
Dear fans and friends,
As some of you have read on various social media outlets, I have suffered a few injuries from my last match at the Alternative Wrestling Show in South Gate, CA the weekend of December 2nd. I was hoping to make a quick recovery to make it to my upcoming events but unfortunately, that won’t be the case.
Long story short, everything went great during the Barb Wire Bat Match against Dust at RISE 6: Brutality but the following day, I got slapped so hard on the left hear that my ear drum ruptured on the spot. Later in the match, I also got my nose broken at two places during a corner combo where all 5 moves landed on my face.
After 3 days of still no progress with my hearing and despite having no insurance, I finally decided to go to the doctor and he confirmed that not only there was a big hole on my ear drum but that there was now also an infection that had traveled to the right ear as well.
Therefore, I need to rest and be on antibiotics and hope for the best, that the hole will close by itself. I need to do everything I can to avoid surgery and especially permanent hearing loss. Unfortunately, this means that I can’t wrestle and definitely can’t fly anywhere because of the pressure it may cause.
I am extremely sorry to cancel IWC Winner Takes All in Elizabeth, PA this weekend but also, I am heartbroken to announce that I won’t be able to attend Shine Wrestling and defend my championship in Ybor City on December 16th. I also have to cancel ACW-Rogue Women Warriors on December 30th …
Again, to the fans but also the promotions that give me the opportunity to step in their ring, please forgive me for missing those shows.
Everyone at Diva Dirt wishes LuFisto a speedy and healthy recovery!
