Initially, the belief was that it was not that severe, but the swelling has gone up and she has been experience more pain. WWE needs her back in time for the return of Total Divas later this year.

Rumors about Kurt Angle being in bad shape have popped up over the internet recently, so the former Olympic gold medalist has decided to clarify things through Twitter. He revealed that the knee surgery is a simple one and that he is not in bad shape.
While it initially appeared that he was going to postpone the knee surgery a couple of more months, there are reports surfacing that Kurt Angle has decided to do it next week. It is being said that he will need a month off, which puts his spot at TNA Lockdown 2014 in jeopardy.
In a bit of news that will be troublesome to fans who are concerned with his health, Kurt Angle has postponed surgery on his knees. He was initially supposed to go under the knife in January, but pushed that back to work the European tour with TNA, and there's talks that he might postpost it even further than that.
Wrestle-1, the new promotion founded by the Great Muta, is about to get an influx of talent from TNA for an upcoming live event in March. Austin Aries, Abyss, Bobby Roode, Brutus Magnus, Christopher Daniels, Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards, Frankie Kazarian, Gail Kim, Madison Rayne and Samoa Joe have been confirmed for the trip.
When Madison Rayne left the company to have her first child, she vowed that she would come back to TNA with a vengeance, and she has done just that. On the Genesis edition of Impact Wrestling last night, Madison defeated Gail Kim to capture the TNA Knockouts Championship.
"I never thought anything would top the excitement I felt when I signed my first TNA contract in 2009. At that moment, a little girl had made her dream come true. But fast forward 4 years, that little girl is a woman now, and after a very long 2013 full of all time high as well as rock bottom low moments, to be back in the ring and say "I did it," and have the support of the fans and my coworkers is an indescribable feeling! I'm baaaaack!"
