The Blade Says He’s Still With AEW, On ‘Injury Reserve’ Due To Back Injury

The Blade provides an update.

The Blade has been with AEW since 2019. He has wrestled on both AEW/ROH programming during his time with the company. He has not wrestled since February due to a back injury.

While speaking on a virtual signing with K& S WrestleFest, The Blade provided an update and confirmed that he was still with AEW. He noted that his back was getting better, but surgery might be the necessary course of action. (H/t Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling for the transcription)

“I’m just on injury reserve right now but yes, still with the company (AEW),” he said. “I’m hoping so (to be back before All In). My back’s bad. It’s slowly but surely getting better but I’m hoping to be back in a couple months and I hope to be back by then… A lot of wear and tear… Might be (having surgery). That’s what we’re in the midst of right now.”

WrestleZone wishes The Blade well in his recovery, and we will provide more information as it becomes available.
