Ouch. Injuries can be one of the most devastating thins that can happen to any wrestler as they can put someone on the shelf for a long time. Someone might get hurt even without being around for very long, as you might see someone needing to fix some wear and tear that has built up. Either way you are going to see someone missing time and that is the case again with an AEW star.

AEW’s Matt Sydal has announced that he will be forced to undergo foot surgery. In a post on Twitter, Sydal explained that he has been dealing with the issue for twelve years, with the surgeon being required to break and refuse three bones. There is no word on when Sydal will be allowed to return to the ring. His most recent match took place on the May 12 edition of AEW Dynamite.

And this was when he was hurt. Check out Sydal’s time in AEW:

Opinion: It’s great to see Sydal getting an injury fixed and the fact that it has been around for such a long time makes it even better. An injury that lasts or twelve years is nuts and hopefully he is able to literally get back on his feet sooner than later. You never want to see someone get hurt and for it to be something that lasts for a good chunk of his career makes things that much worse.

What do you think of Sydal’s time in AEW? How should they use him? Let us know in the comments below.
