An unfortunate update has come out regarding the condition of Jamie Hayter.
On May 28’s Double Or Nothing event, Toni Storm defeated Jamie Hayter for the AEW Women’s World Championship, with it coming out that the British star had picked up an injury a few days prior to the match. Little was known about Hayter’s condition, with many fans hoping to see her return to action in the near future, particularly with All In at Wembley Stadium just one month away.
However, in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer indicated that the former AEW Women’s World Champion would not be back in time for the company’s UK debut, something which Fightful have since corroborated.
On top of this, Fightful Select have confirmed that things are ‘worse than expected’ in regards to Hayter’s injury, going as far as to say that a return for the 28-year-old is not likely to take place this year.
“We’re told that not only is Hayter missing All In, that her returning this year is “unexpected,” and that right now, there’s no timetable on a potential return.”-Fightful Select
This will come as a blow to AEW viewers and fans of the star, particularly since there is no timeframe on when a return could be possible. We, of course, wish Hayter the best and hope for a swift recovery.
On a more positive note, the report rounds off by stating that, despite being depleted in recent weeks, the AEW women’s division is set to receive a boost as Thunder Rosa, Madison Rayne and The Bunny may all find themselves back in the fold within the company soon, though, confirmation hasn’t been made over when they will re-emerge.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on Jamie Hayter and her injury status as we hear more.
