Yes, again. Injuries can stop a wrestling promotion’s momentum cold and there isn’t much that can be done about them. A wrestler can be taken out of action out of nowhere and plans have to be changed on the fly. Unfortunately these things can happen in bunches and that seems to be the case again, as another prominent star has been taken out of action due to an injury.
According to F4WOnline.com, AEW’s Jungle Boy is out of action with an undisclosed injury and he will be missing some time. There is no word on when he was hurt or when he will be back in the ring. This comes after Christian Cage attacked Jungle Boy to end the June 15 edition of AEW Dynamite and is the latest in a long string of injuries to nearly ten AEW stars.
Opinion: I can’t remember the last time that I saw a promotion as snake bit by injuries as AEW right now. It feels like the company can’t go three days without someone else getting hurt and that is going to catch up with them sooner rather than later. At some point you need something to fill in the card and the list of options, while still long, has been knocked down a few pegs. Hopefully Jungle Boy is back soon, because he might be needed more than it seems.
What does this mean for AEW? What should Jungle Boy do when he gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
