That could have been worse. Injuries can happen at any time in wrestling and they are never good to see. No matter how much training or experience a wrestler may have, something bad can happen at any time. One of the worst things that you can see is when something seems to be going fine and then winds up going badly. That wast he case earlier this week, but things might not be as bad as they originally seemed.
This week on AEW Rampage, Jake Atlas was facing Adam Cole. During the match, Atlas attempted a springboard but landed badly on his knee. The match ended shortly thereafter, with Cole winning via a kneebar. Atlas has sent out a tweet, thanking Cole for the chance and saying that he will be back soon. There is no word on what is wrong with his knee or how long he will be out.

It wasn’t pretty. Check out the match, plus what a healthy Atlas can do:
Opinion: That doesn’t sound as bad as it seemed, as a knee injury can be one of the more serious problems. Atlas has only been signed to AEW for a few days now and hopefully he is able to get back in the ring sooner rather than later. He never really got the chance to showcase himself in WWE so maybe he can have a better shot in AEW. Hopefully he gets better soon so he can capitalize on that chance.
What do you think of Atlas? What should he do when he gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
