It could be worse. A wrestler can suffer any number of injuries and you never know just how bad things can go. The main question becomes how long someone will be out of action and unfortunately the answer can often be a very long time. This is the kind of issue that comes up over and over, which is the case again with an AEW star. Things might not be as bad as they seem this time though.

Earlier this week, news broke that AEW’s Matt Jackson had suffered a torn bicep and would be out of action. According to Fightful Select though, Jackson is expected to continue appearing on AEW TV “in some capacity”. There is no word on what that capacity may be or how long he will be out of action. Jackson has opted not to have surgery, which would have required seven months of recovery.

Jackson is a star in AEW. Check out what he can do when he is healthy:

Opinion: This could be worse and in theory the recovery will be a lot shorter without the surgery. Jackson is a huge star in AEW and one of the most successful names the company has ever seen. If nothing else, at least he will be around in some capacity and that should help bridge the gap a good bit. At the end of the day, having one Young Buck is nowhere near the same as both, but this could be a worse scenario.

What do you think of Jackson? How can he be used while recovering? Let us know in the comments below.
