AEW are currently in the midst of an injury crisis, with multiple top stars including CM Punk, Bryan Danielson and Kenny Omega all absent from in-ring action as things stand. Another recent addition to the injury list came on the July 13th edition of Dynamite, as The Young Bucks’ Matt Jackson suffered an injury during the Triple or Nothing Tag Title match with Team Taz & Swerve in Our Glory.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has now provided a positive update on the status of Jackson, noting that although he’s expected to be out for a few weeks, there are no major concerns following the injury.
“Matt Jackson is doing a lot better since his stinger from early in the 7/13 tag title change. He described it as like bad whiplash. He’s had no loss of strength, and his mobility and range of motion is already back to normal. He passed a strength test right after the injury so major concerns about the injury were alleviated quickly. But he was very sore and it may be a few weeks before he’s back in the ring.”– Dave Meltzer
The three-way tag-team bout in question saw Swerve in Our Glory (Swerve Strickland & Keith Lee) shockingly pick up the win to capture the AEW World Tag Team Championships. On this week’s episode of Dynamite, the duo’s championship celebration was interrupted by Smart Mark Sterling and Tony Nese, leading to rap star Kevin Gates nailing Nese with a devastating punch to the jaw.
As always, we wish Matt Jackson the best in his recovery, and look forward to seeing what’s next for The Young Bucks upon his return.
