As of posting time, Angel Quinley is in stable condition at United Hospital in St. Paul Minnesota. She has not woken from her medically induced coma, deemed necessary to stave off complications of swelling after suffering from a traumatic brain injury. The injury was sustained in the first round of the 2023 Milo Flynn Memorial Cup Tag Team Tournament, when Quinley, having sustained what is being hypothesized as a concussion from a kick from opponent David Fox, tried to go airborne off the top rope. After slipping, the back of her head collided with the concrete in what is being deemed as one of professional wrestling’s more gruesome falls.
The impact caused a basilar skull fracture, as well as breaking her left shoulder and elbow. Required surgery to all injuries was deemed successful, though it wasn’t until late Saturday evening that Quinley’s status moved from critical to stable.
While indicators appear positive, medical officials caution that it is too early to celebrate. Attempts to raise Quinley may take place as early as tomorrow, depending on the status of cerebral swelling. “It’s only when she is fully awake that we will have the full picture of what recovery may look like. In most cases, those who suffer traumatic brain injuries, after a lengthy rehabilitation and care regimen, do see high levels of recovery.”
PRIME Owner and President, Lindsay Troy, was quick to make a statement after this news began to filter. “This news on Angel’s condition is positive, and any further news trending upward is cause for celebration. The New World Trash are confidants of Vae Victis, and I’ve made it clear to those within the industry that we view them as potential mega stars. They’re extremely close to not only myself, but my daughter, Ami. When it comes to Angel’s medical costs and having access to the best care in regards to recovery, there will be no expense spared. No matter what happens, we take care of our own, and Vae Victis look forward to defending the cup against both Angel and Bex one year from now.”
This sentiment neither confirms or denies that Quinley and Savage are under contract with PRIME, but indicators seem to show that they fall under the provisions of PRIME’s best in industry health insurance policy.
Savage managed to make it to the semi-finals of the Flynn Cup, with former PRIME star and SCCW Hall of Famer Amy ‘Aimz’ Campbell substituting for the injured Quinley. The makeshift duo nearly made it to the finals, but narrowly lost to undefeated PRIME Tag Team Champions Eminence.
