It’s close to life. We are less than three days away from AEW Full Gear and that is a good thing. AEW has not had many pay per view events in its history but what they had had so far has been some outstanding stuff. They have figured out the formula for a great pay per view and that is what we should be getting again this weekend. However, one of the bigger matches might be fighting an uphill battle.
AEW is going to have its share of a stacked card with some major title matches involved. One of the most prominent and hyped matches is a dream match between the Young Bucks and AEW Tag Team Champions FTR. This has been a match that fans have wanted to be seeing for a very long time now and it has finally been signed, but now there has been a wrench thrown into the plans.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Matt Jackson has a partially torn MCL and a slight tear of the ACL. This is the reason why FTR has attacked his knee on recent episodes of Dynamite. Jackson was injured during a recent match with Butcher and Blade which saw him dive off the stage and hurt his knee in the process. However, Jackson has said that he is completely medically cleared to compete in the match.
I appreciate everyone’s concern about my injury. However, I have indeed been medically cleared by my doctor to participate in Saturday’s match against The Bore Horsemen at Full Gear, live on PPV. Thank you for the support.
F The Revival.

This is a dream match. Check out how we got here and what people are expecting from it:
Opinion: That’s rather disappointing but it does explain a little bit as far as the injury angle goes. The Bucks are a great team and their high flying skills are almost unmatched, but that style is going to lead to some dangerous moments, which seems to have been the case here. Hopefully everything is fine though, as this match could be an instant classic. Jackson’s health is more important, but if he is cleared at the moment, there is no reason for him not to wrestle.
