The March 22nd edition of AEW Dynamite opened with the Young Bucks laid out in the parking lot and being taken away in an ambulance.
It was revealed later in the show that the Blackpool Combat Club was behind the attack, but the status of the Bucks was unknown. In a backstage segment, Don Callis hinted that they could be off television for an extended period as he commented that they’d be fine in a “few months.”
A new report has now revealed that the Jackson brothers look set for a spell on the sidelines after Matt suffered a legitimate injury. Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez revealed that the star had suffered a partially torn bicep. Alvarez noted that he suffered the injury early on during the Three-Way Trios World Title match on the March 15th episode of Dynamite.
Despite suffering the injury, Matt worked the rest of the match as planned.
Meltzer added that Matt has decided against surgery, which means he should be back in the ring quicker.
“What I heard is that he opted to not get surgery, so he’s hopeful of being back quicker. Surgery you’re probably looking at seven months.
The deal that they did on last week’s show with the ambulance and everything, we all thought it was this brilliant show-long storyline, and it worked, but the reason they did it was to cover for Matt being gone for a while.”
The “Majority” Of Wrestlers In AEW Don’t Want CM Punk Back
Once again one of the biggest stories in AEW has nothing to do with what’s taking place on television. On March 23rd CM Punk went on the attack on Instagram, seemingly in a response to a post on a messageboard by Dave Meltzer.
Days later the fallout from the post continues. A new report on Punk’s status within AEW suggests he doesn’t get along with a number of big names including Jon Moxley, Hangman Adam Page, Kenny Omega, the Young Bucks, and Chris Jericho. Furthermore, the “majority” of the locker room doesn’t want him to return to the company.
