They did it again. Wrestling is a rather dangerous sport no matter how it is presented. The amount of time in the ring, training and experience that someone has does not make someone immune from an injury and it can happen at any time. There are injuries that are built up over time and there are injuries that take place all at once. The latter was the case this week.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Matt Jackson of the Young Bucks suffered a stinger during the main event of this week’s edition of Dynamite. The match was a triple threat with the Young Bucks defending the AEW Tag Team Titles against Keith Lee/Swerve Strickland and Team Taz. Early in the match, Lee and Powerhouse Hobbs suplexed Jackson, resulting in him jarring his neck and causing him to wrestle slowly for the rest of the match. There was nothing wrong with the suplex, as Matt has a history of neck issues due to years of wear and tear. There is no word on how long he might be out of action, if at all.
Opinion: This is one of those things that can happen to just about anyone at any given time as you never know how someone’s body might react. Even something as basic as a suplex can hurt someone in a big way and that seems to be the case again. Hopefully Jackson isn’t out of action for too long, as you never know how long a neck injury is going to last.
What do you think of the Young Bucks? What should they do next? Let us know in the comments below.
