Desde Julho que Summer Rae não tem aparecido nos shows televisivos da WWE e desde Agosto que não tem participado sequer nos live-events da companhia. Apesar de se ter falado em possíveis lesões no pescoço, ainda não tinha sido dada qualquer explicação oficial para a sua ausência, mas sabe-se agora que tudo se deve, de facto, a uma lesão.
Durante o fim de semana, Summer Rae publicou no Instagram uma foto e texto a explicar o motivo da sua ausência. A lutadora tem vindo a recuperar de uma lesão que, numa fase inicial, escolheu esconder dos fãs.
Ainda não existe nenhuma previsão para terminar a sua recuperação e voltar ao activo.
Well it's almost mid November now, so maybe it's time to answer the question I get flooded with every single day on social media. For the past 2 & a half months I have been dealing with an injury. I've been very private & not shared my journey during this time. I don't know why that is actually. Perhaps talking about it & putting a spotlight on it makes it more real & that wasn't something I was ready for. A spotlight is put on us in every aspect of our lives so maybe I thought 'let me deal with this privately since it effects so many things in my life in & out of the ring'. Or maybe why I haven't talked about it is because I assumed it would be an easy fix & wouldn't take that long to get back to normal. That it wouldn't take this long to not only fix but diagnose as well. That alone is so frustrating. That holding pattern that your life is put in. For 9 years I've been lucky to lead a healthy athletic career in both football & wrestling so these aren't things or emotions I've had to experience before. I've gone thru so many emotions during this time but been very private with it all. I love what I do. I am absolutely in love with wrestling & the WWE universe. It's so unique & unlike anything else in the world! In this business you just go go go & putting your body on the line every night becomes second nature & you don't think much of it. But that isn't a normal thing. Our bodies aren't made to do this. But you forget that when you hear the roar of the crowd! I've been so humbled by the overwhelming support towards me on social media & seeing the fans outpouring love & passion. I must say it's bittersweet seeing it from home. Im lucky to be surrounded by an amazing team of doctors & physical therapists. Its a lot harder than I thought it would be to fix things but you only have one body so taking care of mine is a top priority right now. Sharing this with you guys has been weighing heavily on my heart lately & I felt like I needed to. It's been one of the most frustrating times of my life filled with so many different emotions. Generally speaking, the unknown is scary. But thru the greatest times of uncertainty in my life have come immeasurable things. ??
Passado cerca de um mês, pouco mais há a acrescentar sobre a recuperação de Summer Rae. A lutadora da WWE continua a treinar e a recuperar-se da lesão contraída no passado mês de Agosto.
Summer Rae publicou o seguinte no Instagram:
Between the intense physical therapy I'm receiving & the lingering pain & restraints this injury puts on me…I haven't been able to workout like I used too. ?? And I must say it's a struggle for me. It messes with your head! Going to the gym is a physical & mental release for me, so I'm kinda going a little crazy lately & it gets to me!! I get down on myself & frustrated. This week I was able to lift small amounts of weight properly without being in pain for days. ??? That's a huge breakthrough for me bc it's a step towards getting back something that I love & need in my life, fitness! Whatever obstacle you have going on right now, you can overcome it. You have to trust the path & follow the road. I forget about that sometimes & get overwhelmed thinking about the big picture. Take it ONE day at a time. That's something I must remember. ? #roadtorecovery #physicaltherapy #overcomingobstacles #pt
