While the backstage heat on Aksana has subsided over the last few months, some of it has returned this week, as a few people are blaming her for the eye injury that Naomi Knight suffered on Monday Night Raw this week, even though it was an accident.
While working a match against Aksana on Monday Night Raw this week, a little accident took place that gave Naomi Knight an assortment of eye injuries, including a bruised orbital bone. WWE medical staff gave her some ice and medicine backstage, and she's expected to make a quick recovery.
For a while there, Aksana had some backstage heat on her in WWE because of her performances during the European tour. However, a lot of that heat has died down tremendously, as she has slowly received more television time. Aksana is also a candidate to join Total Divas next season.
