That’s a serious one. There are all kinds of injuries in wrestling and some of them can be very serious. Some will leave a wrestler on the shelf for a long time and can completely change the way their careers work. You never want to see something like that happen but sometimes there is no way around it. A current star is hinting that he might be in for a pretty serious injury.

AEW’s Kyle O’Reilly has posted a series of photos to his Instagram Stories suggesting that he has had neck fusion surgery. O’Reilly is shown in a hospital bed, along with a photo showing a Ford Fusion, but with the word Ford covered by the work Neck. If this is the case, O’Reilly would likely be out of action for several months if not a full year. This comes just after O’Reilly’s partner Bobby Fish’s AEW contract expired earlier this week.

Opinion: That is never something you want to see and O’Reilly is likely going to be out of action for a very long time. Anything related to someone’s neck is a serious situation and O’Reilly has wrestled such a physical style for so long. Hopefully he can come back and be better than ever, but it is probably going to take a good while before everything an get back to even close to full health.

What do you think of O’Reilly? What does this mean for AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
