That could put things on hold. An injury can change the way a wrestling company works in a hurry as anyone from the lowest level person on the roster to the World Champion can be taken out in the blink of an eye. Some injuries are far worse than others and can put a wrestler on the shelf for a very long time. Hopefully that is not the case with someone who may be banged up.
The big story in AEW at the moment is Kenny Omega, who became World Champion just over a month ago. Omega has since joined forces with the Good Brothers and the Young Bucks, forming the most powerful group AEW has ever seen. That is a heck of a lineup and could dominate AEW for a long time to come. However, that might have to be put on hold if a worst case scenario is true.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Nick Jackson might have broken his leg on this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite. During his match, Jackson put his knees up to block a splash from Jack Evans, but Evans landed so hard that he may have injured Jackson’s knees. Jackson was limping throughout the night and did not use a superkick throughout the rest of the show. There is no word on how long Jackson could be out if he is injured.
Opinion: I hope this isn’t the case as anyone suffering this kind of injury is a bad thing. Jackson is one of the bigger stars in AEW and is involved in a major story with the company, in addition to being half of the Tag Team Champions. Hopefully this isn’t as bad as it seems and Jackson is able to be not miss any ring time. That’s awful to hear and the sooner he can get back, the better everyone will be.
