A new report has shed further light on the injury status of AEW star Santana, including a possible timeframe for his return.
At Blood and Guts, the Blackpool Combat Club, alongside Santana, Ortiz, and Eddie Kingston went to war with The Jericho Appreciation Society.
A bloody battle ensued that saw glass, thumbtacks, wooden skewers, and a fork involved before Sammy Guevara was thrown from the top of the double cage by Kingston to the floor below.
However, it was in the ring that a nasty injury appeared to happen as seconds after entering the match, Santana landed awkwardly after delivering an uranage, apparently injuring his knee.
Since then, AEW President Tony Khan has confirmed the injury and said that it could be “relatively long”.
Recently, the star appeared at LAWE Summerfest to relinquish the promotion’s World Championship he won back in May as he will be unable to defend it.

Now, Fightful Select has provided further details on Santana’s status. According to their report, he has sustained an ACL injury.
They also noted that he was seen on crutches at the LAWE event. He also seemingly let people there know he had not yet undergone any surgery. He is currently expected to miss 8-12 months.
