She is dealing with an anterior lateral tibial fracture, a partial lateral collateral ligament tear and a small degree tendon tear and is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

New AEW Women’s World Champion Hikaru Shida in action
When AEW started they touted themselves as a new, inclusive promotion. A place where women, the LGBTQ community, and people with disabilities could enjoy wrestling without the toxic trappings of the larger wrestling world. They touted themselves as a place for everyone.
Booking convicted, unrepentant rapist Mike Tyson is a slap in the face to women and victims of sexual violence.
When Tyson was introduced on Saturday my partner, who has relished the alternative to WWE programming that AEW provides, exclaimed “F— Mike Tyson. F— AEW for this.” and left the room. One-in-six women and one-in-thirty-three men have been or will be raped in their lifetime. Some of them are wrestling fans, and some of them won’t come back after this.
