WWE posts an update on Naomi’s injury.
- Updated: February 15, 2014
Dr. Amann passed on the good news today to WWE.com that Naomi has visited with a specialist and that it has been determined that surgery will not be required to her eye injury. This is because “neither the nerve nor the eye muscles are trapped in the fracture itself.”
However, due to “the break that she has off the medial or inside wall of the orbital bone, [there is]communication between her sinus cavity and the back of the eye socket.”
Because of this damage, pressure differences will prevent Naomi from traveling on an airplane at the present time. As a result, she will not return to the ring without restriction for an estimated 4-6 weeks.
