Lufisto Suffers Injury

Lufisto suffered an injury over the weekend, and due to that has had to cancel some upcoming bookings. The current SHINE Champion wrote the following on her official website:

“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.”

We wish Lufisto a speedy recovery!
