That’s a relief. An injury can be absolutely terrifying in wrestling as you never know what is going to happen after the fact. A wrestler can be injured and the question becomes about how bad things are. Above all else, the biggest issue is how bad things are, including how long someone will be out of action. While we do not know how bad things are, we do have some good news on the injury front.
On Saturday night at All Out, Matt Hardy suffered a bad injury when he and Sammy Guevara overshot a table in a big dive off of a scissor lift. Hardy’s head smashed into the concrete floor, though the match continues with Hardy winning a few minutes later. Hardy was looking pretty rough during the match and now we know just how bad things got for him.
Several updates about Hardy have come in throughout Sunday. According to 411mania.com, Matt’s wife Reby tweeted (since privatized) that Hardy had a concussion and needed additional scanning after his CT scan. Later in the day, Dave Meltzer reported that Matt was out of the hospital. Finally, Tony Khan announced that Hardy had passed his MRI and CT scans and does not have a concussion. Hardy is scheduled to appear on this week’s Dynamite.
Am told Matt Hardy was released from the hospital.

Hardy has done some nice things in AEW. Check out some of his time with the company:
Opinion: This is a situation that does not exactly look good for AEW no matter what. The match continuing is rather hard to defend when you see how Hardy looked after that landing. Throw in him climbing the lighting structure a few minutes later and it does not seem like the best idea. Hopefully Hardy is fine, but that is not something that is going to make AEW look like it was taking care of its wrestlers.
