WWE medical personnel confirmed to WWE.com that Beth Phoenix suffered a severe sprain to her left ankle in her WWE Divas Championship loss to Nikki Bella on Monday’s Raw SuperShow.
The Glamazon was limping after she leapt from the ring apron to the floor during the Lumberjill Match. She was assisted to the locker room area following the bout.
The former Divas champion will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.
“It looks like she affected her anterior talofibular ligament, which is the most common injured ankle ligament on an inversion injury,” Dr. Michael Sampson told WWE.com. “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.”
