It was a rough night. You never know when you might see someone get hurt in a wrestling match. That is the kind of thing that can happen to anyone at any time and some of them are far more devastating than others. No matter what happens though, one of the worst times is wondering just how bad things are with them. That is the case now, as two wrestlers are injured right before a major event.
Earlier this week on AEW Dynamite, Britt Baker’s knee was badly injured during a tag team match. The injury has not been officially diagnosed so far but there is a chance that it is a torn ACL. That is a career changing injury and could keep her out of the ring for the better part of a year. TO make things worse for AEW, it was one of three injuries that took place on the same show.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, both Matt Jackson and Rey Fenix were injured on this week’s AEW Dynamite. Fenix was injured when he attempted a springboard dive to the floor but no one helped catch him, leaving him to crash down onto the floor. As a result, Fenix has suffered a hip injury but should still be able to compete at Double Or Nothing. Jackson injured his ribs diving off a wall in the final segment of the show, resulting in a bruised or broken rib, or perhaps a cartilage tear. He is also expected to be ready for Double Or Nothing.
These were some nasty moments. Check out how the injuries went down:
Opinion: These are the kinds of injuries that could have been a lot worse and hopefully both of them are ready to compete on Saturday. Fenix’s spot looked a lot worse than Jackson’s but you never know how bad someone could wind up being after such a crash. There is still a chance that both of them are fine, but we will have to wait until Saturday to see how things go.
Which of these two would be a bigger loss for Saturday’s card? What do you see next for both of them? Let us know in the comments below.
