Melina wrote a blog on the WWE website discussing her recovery from ACL surgery. She also talked about past injuries noting she suffering from depression in 2008 when during the draft show she fractured her heel. “It broke into four pieces and it jammed into my ankle. I had surgery for that as well,” she wrote. “They put in two plates and six screws. I wasn?t able to walk for 3 months, which is very fortunate but didn?t feel that way at the time. During that injury I went through so many things personally. I was depressed. I questioned my worth. Not just in wrestling but in every aspect of my life. One day maybe I will explain further but for now I just want to thank you all for seeing me through that. I couldn?t tell you then but I can now, reading your emails and watching your YouTube tributes gave me strength to keep moving forward.”
