Ouch. There are all kinds of ways that wrestlers can get hurt and some of them can be rather devastating. Some of them can leave a wrestler on the sidelines for a long time, which can cause all kinds of other issues. A serious injury that leaves a wrestler hurt for a long time can mean some decisions have to be made about the future, which might be the case again.
Over the weekend, NWA World Champion Matt Cardona posted a tweet saying that he thought he tore his bicep during a match against Blake Christian at a GCW event. Cardona has confirmed that he has since undergone an MRI and confirmed that his bicep has been torn and will require surgery. As a result, Cardona will be forced to miss some dates, though it is not known how long he will be out of action. It is also not known what will happen to the championships he currently holds.
Got a MRI today. Bicep is torn. Surgery needed. Will unfortunately need to cancel some dates.

Opinion: This is something you never want to see happen and it is even worse with Cardona being on the roll of a lifetime. He has been having good matches and all kinds of success around the country and it is a shame to see that he is going to be out of action for such a long time. I’m not sure how long he is going to be out and hopefully he is back in the ring sooner than later, as I want to see whatever he comes up with next.
What do you think of Cardona? What should he do when he gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
