The WWE's terrible run of bad luck with injuries continued last night with reports that female star Emma suffered an injury during a live event on Sunday.

Per the WWE, the 27-year-old Australian ruptured a disc in her back and, unfortunately, is set to undergo surgery in the next few days.

Coming at a time when Emma was attempting to stake her claim for a higher-profile role in the Women's division, her impending injury layoff is obviously a big blow for her personally. She has now taken to Twitter to address the situation:

Emma's reaction sums up the situation pretty well. After battling back from a turbulent couple of years in the WWE which saw her released, re-hired and demoted to NXT, she had impressed since returning to the main roster in the run up to WrestleMania 32.

Now, while the timetable for her recovery will not be known until after the surgery takes place on Wednesday, you have to imagine that 'The Dancing Queen' is facing up to several months out.

A ruptured disc is one of the more serious injuries a WWE wrestler can suffer.

Emma's fellow female wrestler, Nikki Bella, was recently forced to miss several months as she battled a herniated disc, whilst Randy Orton has missed significant time in the past due to his own battle with disc issues in his back.

Wider impact

It was only last week that we saw Emma's partner from her recent NXT run, Dana Brooke, debut on Raw. Now, with the former facing a significant time away from the squared circle, their whole storyline has the potential to fall into limbo.

With Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks also primed to be involved in any potential tag team feud, her injury setback could have a significant impact on the Women's division as a whole.

Fortunately from the WWE creative's perspective, there are, of course, a number of talented female wrestlers in the division right now who are ahead of Emma in the pecking order.

Charlotte and Natalya are all set to do battle for the Women's title at this weekend's Extreme Rules PPV.
