Naomi Knight is being praised by people backstage in WWE for continuing with her match on Monday Night Raw, despite suffering an eye injury. She showed toughness by putting the fans and professionalism first by making sure that the match was finished.
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.
The WWE Divas Championship is being viewed as a backup plan at Royal Rumble 2014 right now. If there is enough time on the show, then the match between AJ Lee and Naomi Knight will take place. If not, then management will wait until the following Monday Night Raw.
The current plan in WWE is to have Naomi and Cameron leaving Brodus Clay, who has now turned heel, and Tensai to join Xavier Woods and R Truth. The segment on Monday Night Raw this week was designed to further that story line.
Later on this week, Naomi Knight is expected to meet with doctors to see if she will be needing surgery to repair her injured eye. 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.
