New TNA women’s wrestler Moose (a.k.a. Mickie Knuckles) had surgery scheduled for today following a broken femur in her right leg, according to PWInsider.com. She suffered the injury during an IWA-Mid South match vs. Sara del Rey, and she’s still expected to sign a TNA deal (she’s been on TV without a deal) despite the injury.

Clean break, no compound…but OUCH!”
