Mark Henry has revealed that PAC recently missed some time with AEW due to a concussion.
The former World Champion highlighted the news while expressing concern over a spot involving PAC in the Casino Ladder Match on the October 6th episode of Dynamite. During the match PAC was on the receiving end of a Deadeye from ‘Hangman’ Adam Page from a ladder through a table.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Henry said that he wouldn’t have had the British star take the move in light of his recent injury issues, , adding that the spot scared him.
“I would not have had a guy that was injured recently take a big bump off the top of a ladder to the floor on his back. I watched PAC, I watched his head snap back and hit the mat. He just had a concussion a month and a half ago. I’m probably breaking HIPPA laws, but everybody saw that and he missed time because of it. I would have been leery of it. Maybe he’s the one who called it, I don’t know. It scared me because I’m concerned about PAC,”
PAC had been due to take on Andrade El Idolo at AEW All Out on September 5th, but the match was pulled from the show. Addressing the removal of the match from the card, AEW President Tony Khan said that it was due to “travel issues.”
The match instead took place on the September 10th episode of AEW Rampage. The showing having been taped two days previously.
During the Casino Ladder Match, ‘Hangman’ Adam Page made his own triumphant return to action having been missing since July. Page emerged victorious after knocking Jon Moxley from the top a ladder, leaving him free to grab the chip hanging high above the ring.
The win means that Page has now guaranteed a future shot at the AEW World Championship.
