That’s never good to see. Injuries are one of the few constants in all of wrestling as anyone can get hurt at any time. They can take someone out of action for any length of time and that can be devastating to any momentum that a wrestler has. Some injuries are a lot worse than others and now it appears likely that an AEW star will be out of action for a good while after a serious one.

AEW’s Andrade El Idolo has posted a message to Instagram, revealing that he has undergone surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle this week. El Idolo said that he suffered the injury a few months ago but is just now undergoing the surgery to repair it. There is no word on when exactly the injury took place or how long he will be out of action. El Idolo was reportedly sent home from AEW due to a backstage fight with Sammy Guevara in September, though it is not clear if he was allowed to return.

El Idolo has made an impact in AEW. Check out some of his time in the company:

Opinion: This explains a bit as El Idolo has been out of action for such a long time now. If El Idol isn’t going to be around for the time being, it makes sense for him to take care of a long term injury. El Idolo has done well enough in AEW so far and maybe all he needs is a fresh start to really take off. The talent is there, and if AEW can figure out how to do it, they could have a huge star on their hand.

What do you think of El Idolo? How far can he go in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
