Taya Valkyrie sports a black eye in injury update video

Impact Knockouts Champion, Taya Valkyrie, took to Twitter this afternoon to update fans on an injury she suffered during an intergender tag match yesterday. She initially posted a picture of the bruises and swelling last night.

Apparently, this was the result of a missed moonsault, which left her with a severely swollen eye and contusions across her face.

“As you can see, my face is still super swollen,” Valkyrie said. “We got some x-rays and stuff done last night because the pressure on my eye was actually really bad, but I don’t have any fractures. Thank God. It’s just severe swelling on the whole right side of my face, so, it’s just putting pressure on my eyeball. And some contusions. I just have some eye drops and lots of icing and I just have to try to stay positive even though I look like this.”

Later, when asked who responsible was for this Valkyrie replied, “Nobody, it was an accident. This is pro-wrestling and accidents happen. I’ve executed 1000s of perfect moonsaults. Tonight, something just went wrong. That’s all.”

Luckily, the injury isn’t critical, but it did force her to cancel a booking this weekend.

We wish Taya Valkyrie a swift recovery. Hopefully, this won’t affect many of her engagements going forward.
