She apparently hurt her knee or leg and the ref flashed the "X" and trainers came out to look at it. She begged them to let her continue and actually talked them into re-starting the match. But after a minute or two she couldn't go on and the ref stopped it. Curious that they never went for an improvised finish even after the re-start.  It will be interesting to see how/if they edit that together for TV. I'm not sure if she was supposed to win the match or not, but I can imagine her frustration getting hurt during her big opportunity. She was supposedly very upset.
The Tegan Nox match finally aired last night.  The injury came on the very first move of the match.  She definitely has balls.  I can't believe she convinced the trainer to let the match continue when she could barely stand.  I guess they care more about head injuries than leg injuries, but in 2018 I never thought that would still happen.  They went another couple of minutes and then Nox actually ran the ropes and got nailed with a dropkick and that's when she started screaming in pain and threw up the X herself.  They showed all of it unedited and it was some powerful TV. 

Rhea Ripley was phenomenal in keeping her cool and continuing to sneer at Nox through all this.  Some great facial expression to show that she didn't give a shit if someone was hurt, she was just glad to advance.  She really did a great job in making sure the whole match didn't fall apart.  I think they said she was 21 and she did a better job than a lot of veterans in keeping it together and never breaking character.
