WWE Says Rosa Mendes Suffered "Serious Whiplash"; Comments On Car Accident


Dot com has posted an update on Rosa Mendes after she was involved in a car accident in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday night. The official WWE website reports Rosa suffered "serious whiplash" but no other major injuries. She was released from the hospital late Friday night.

At approximately 6:45 PM a Mercedes in a turning lane switched lanes and caused a truck to jackknife in which led to a series of successive collisions. Dot com quoted Rosa in their update:

"We were talking when all of a sudden, I saw in my rear view mirror a truck coming really fast. It jackknifed," Rosa told WWE.com early Saturday morning.

"We were the last car hit, so we had the most impact," she said. "We slid two car lengths. I didn’t know when it was going to stop. If we weren’t in the Hummer, we would’ve been seriously injured."

"My neck and back were really hurting," Rosa said. "My body is my job. I was so scared that I was not going to be able to wrestle. I was in a lot of pain."

"Nothing’s broken," she said. "I feel like I can wrestle but the whole right side of my neck and back have a burning sensation."

Though still very shaken from the incident, the WWE Diva offered an optimistic message to concerned WWE fans.

"I want [the WWE Universe] to know that I'm OK and I'm alive," Rosa said. "I'm grateful to be here because it was really, really scary."
