It’s the nature of the match. There are a lot of match types in wrestling and some of them are a lot more violent than others. Some of those matches are designed to be as violent as possible, particularly in matches between people who can’t stand each other. It can make for some serious violence, which is on top of the inherent danger of wrestling. That was the case again this week.
The main event of this week’s AEW Dynamite saw Chris Jericho defeat Eddie Kingston in a barbed wire match. The match saw barbed wire around the ring with both wrestlers using it throughout the match. Jericho has since taken to Twitter and revealed that he suffered a broken nose during the match, though it is not clear when in the match it happened. There is nothing to suggest that Jericho will be missing any ring time.

Opinion: One of the interesting things about a match like this is how many people get hurt doing something simple. There is a very good chance that the injury was off of something that might take place in any given match, which was the case when Santana was injured during Blood & Guts. Thankfully a broken nose shouldn’t be that bad so hopefully Jericho is back sooner rather than later.
What did you think of the match? What should both of them do next? Let us know in the comments below.
