There is a lot to go through. Injuries are one of the worst things that can happen to a wrestler as you never know when someone is going to be put on the shelf. It could be for quite a long time or a short while, but either way it is something that can create quite the problem. That is the case again in AEW, but this time there are quite a few injuries at the same time.
Fightful Select is reporting updates on several AEW injuries. First up is Matt Hardy, who suffered some sort of a knee injury over the weekend at AAA’s TripleMania event in Tijuana, Mexico. Hardy’s knee is said to have “major” swelling but it is not clear how long he might be out, if he is at all. In addition, Bryan Danielson is currently not cleared to wrestle at AEW Forbidden Door, though he is expected to make an announcement about his injury status.
Next, Lee Johnson is currently out of action with a knee injury and is expected to be out of action for the rest of the summer. Finally, Darius Martin is also out of action with an injury, though AEW is hoping that he will be back in the ring by the end of the year. That is considered a hope though, as there is no guaranteeing that Martin will be ready to return to the ring by then.
Opinion: That is a heck of a list of names out of action at the same time, as AEW has all kinds of people on the shelf at the moment. Some of them are a lot worse than others and it would be nice to see them all get back in the ring sooner rather than later. The Danielson update is going to be important, as his sounds a bit more serious than the rest, if nothing else due to how bad of a history he has.
What does this mean for AEW? Who could take these wrestlers’ places? Let us know in the comments below.
