It can happen to anyone. Injuries are one of the few constants in the world of wrestling and unfortunately that means anyone can be hurt at any time. It happens more often than anyone would like and the question instantly becomes just how long someone is going to be out of action. It seems that we saw another injury take place this week, but it might not be as bad as one might think.
AEW’s Alan Angels has announced that he suffered a strained MCL during his match against Bryan Danielson on this week’s Dynamite. As a result, Angels was unable to wrestle at this week’s AEW Dark. It is not clear when Angels will be able to return to the ring. Danielson defeated Angels with a kneebar and referenced the injury as soon as the match was over, taking credit for it in the process.
I was supposed to compete at the AEW Dark tapings today but unfortunately I suffered from a strained MCL at the hands of Bryan Danielson Wednesday. Hope to be back soon!

Angels has been rather good when he is healthy. Check out what he can do in the ring:
Opinion: Hopefully things aren’t too bad, and it would be nice to hear that this is an angle rather than an actual injury. That might be the case given how Danielson spoke about it, but I’m not sure how likely that is. Angels is someone who has a nice fan following and it would be a shame to see him, or anyone for that matter, miss an extended period of time due to injury.
What do you think of Angels? What is next for him? Let us know in the comments below.
