It has been 134 days since Xandra Bale wrestled her last match where she, Jewells Malone & Santana Garrett fell to Barbi Hayden, Jessie Kaye & Jody D’Milo in the second match of Women Superstars Uncensored‘s Blood and Thunder show. The reason is due to an injury that the high-flying Ontarian suffered during the contest.
Bale broke her fibula during a dive from the top rope, which was expected to keep her in a cast for six weeks – and that is even before she could begin rehabilitation and getting back into ring shape. The injury meant that she was forced to miss out on a match against Cheerleader Melissa at NCW Femmes Fatales XIII, though her return will take place today at Smash Wrestling‘s Danger Zone show in Etobicoke. However in a weird coincidence, her match has been changed due to injury issues…
Xandra’s original contest was meant to be a triple threat affair pitting her against Vanessa Kraven and Mickie James, though Smash has revealed that the former WWE Diva and TNA Knockout is unable to compete after not receiving medical clearance. She will be at the show, though it will be in a special refereeing capacity and Bale now faces Kraven in singles action.
Bale had an excellent 2013 where she ventured to new promotions like SHIMMER, WSU and SHINE. She also increased her brand and entertained fans along the way. Hopefully she can continue that momentum into 2014.
The show is also going to make an announcement for Smash’s next event, which it claims will be connected to the second CANUSA Classic event following a well-received debut card last September. A date for the second event has not been announced and there has been no details on participants, so we will see what transpires.
