WWE’s rising women’s star, Emma, has hit multiple roadblocks on her way to the top of the roster, but it appears she’s back on track six months after undergoing immediate surgery after it was discovered a herniated disk was pressing on her spine.

Here’s what Emma said, via her Instagram.

Six months ago today I couldn't bend over to put my shoes on. I couldn't lift my arms up to get dressed. I couldn't hold my hand up to do my makeup. I couldn't sit stand or walk without pain. I knew it was bad when I realized all these things weren't going away and when the left side of my spine and neck started to constantly spasm. It was even more scary finding out I needed surgery on my spine right away because the spasms and the weakness in my left arm were from nerve damage from the herniated disc pressing on my spinal cord. But in that instant all I could think was that I was lucky I wasn't paralyzed! Six months ago I had surgery and you can see the removed disc above. Today I stand here happy to say I'm fit and healthy. It was a crazy ride but I stayed positive, focused and determined to be better than before. After all, I didn't move my life across the world and leave everything behind for nothing. I fully believe that everything happens for a reason and maybe I needed to fall back for a while away from the crowd so that I can come back and take that spotlight… And believe me I will!

After she was briefly fired after she allegedly stole an iPad case, then rehired two hours later, Emma was sent back to NXT where she reinvented herself alongside Dana Brooke. The injury pushed back her jump back to the main card, but it looks like she’s well on her way back.

Emma is expected to re-debut any day now with a new gimmick, “Emmalina.”
