Phoenix injured in Divas Title loss

Phoenix injured in Divas Title loss
DETROIT – In her WWE Divas Championship loss to Nikki Bella on Raw SuperShow Monday, Beth Phoenix suffered what WWE medical personnel have confirmed is a severe sprain to her left ankle.

Phoenix was limping visibly after she leapt from the ring apron to the floor during the championship encounter, which was contested in a Lumberjill Match. After the bout, WWE trainers assisted Phoenix to the locker room area.

According to Dr. Michael Sampson, the former Divas champion will undergo an MRI.

“It looks like she affected her anterior talofibular ligament, which is the most common injured ankle ligament on an inversion injury,” Sampson told “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.”

Check back later for updates on the status of Phoenix’s injury.
