Mercedes Mone suffered an injury in the main event of NJPW Resurgence on Sunday. 

Mone was carried out of the ring following her main event match against Willow Nightingale to crown the first-ever NJPW Strong Women's Champion, a match won by Nightingale. 

The injury seemed to occur on a spot where Mone jumped from the top rope and ring post to the floor in clotheslining Nightingale's neck across the top rope. After the move, Mone appeared unable to put any weight on her right leg. 

The match continued for about 60 seconds after the apparent injury, including a spot where Nightingale hit a powerbomb to Mone, covered for a pin, Mone did not kick out, but the referee did not count to three. 

After a few seconds of confusion, the referee signaled that Mone had gotten a shoulder up. Nightingale then immediately hit a second powerbomb, this time for a three count. 

The entire sequence can be seen in the tweet below: 

Nightingale and Mone both competed twice at Resurgence in a one-night tournament to crown the first NJPW Strong Women's Champion.
