Aliyah confirms that she is out with an injury.

The duo of Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships to Damage CTRL’s Dakota Kai and IYO SKY on September 12th.

Aliyah has not wrestled since then and on her Instagram page, she confirmed that she is sidelined with an injury. She shared that she was injured mid-match but felt indestructible in the moment as she continued to push forward. Aliyah wrestled with an elevated first rib and AC sprain.

She added that she is grateful to do what she does and is unsure of when she’ll be back but wanted to publicly say thank you.

It’s been a month so here I go straight from the horses mouth:
I have to say my last match was probably one of my most favorite. And I would like to thank my tag partner Raquel and Damage CTRL And everyone involved. Yes I got injured mid match, however I have this overwhelming gratitude towards the incident because I felt like it pulled out a version of me that I never even knew existed. “Keep going!” I remember thinking. “I never get opportunities like this one” another voice in my head screamed. So idc I’m going to keep going and keep showing out. The emotions and energy I was feeling in the moment truly lit me up inside and I felt INDESTRUCTIBLE in that moment (yes, with an elevated first rib and ac sprain and all.)
I am very grateful to get to do what I do and I hope my passion and efforts transcended thru your television screen.
I don’t know what the future holds or when I’ll be back. But I just want to say thank you for everyone that has reached out. I really can’t wait to get back in the ring. 🖤
