That’s always a possibility. As talented as wrestlers can be, there is always the chance that an injury could take place. It might be just a quick fluke, but the threat is out there no matter how long or short a match may be. That is the kind of thing that can turn a career on its head, and unfortunately it seems to have done so again to a wrestler who hasn’t been back in the ring all that long.
According to Wrestling Observer Live, AEW’s The Butcher has torn his bicep. The injury is said to have occurred this week on AEW Dynamite during a match between the Butcher and the Blade and Tomohiro Ishii/Orange Cassidy. There is no word on how long Butcher will be out of action. Butcher only returned to AEW in September, following a tour with his band, Every Time I Die.
Butcher is a heck of a star. Check out what he can do when he is healthy:
Opinion: That’s never good to hear and hopefully he can be back in the ring sooner rather than later. Tearing anything is a pretty serious injury and that is going to sideline the Butcher and the Blade for a long while. Throw in the fact that Butcher is in his early 40s and this is taking away some of the probably limited time that he has left in the ring anyway. Hopefully he can get better and return as soon as possible.
