Antonio Inoki Injured, Melina Blogs on Injuries & Depression

Nick Paglino

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Antonio Inoki will be heading into this weekend’s WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony injured as he recently suffered two broken ribs in a boating accident in Palao Island.

WWE Diva Melina recently posted the following blog on her WWE Universe account discussing her past injuries as well as a battle against depression. She wrote, "It [her heel in 2008] broke into four pieces and it jammed into my ankle. I had surgery for that as well. 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."
