Buddy Matthews Injury Update Following 6/15 AEW Collision

Buddy Matthews appeared to injure his knee in the main event of AEW Collision Saturday night against Bullet Club Gold.

While the injury seemed legit at the moment, the post-match angle with The Patriarchy threw its legitimacy into question.

In an update from Mike Johnson of PWInsider, the injury to Matthews on Saturday night was “100% a storyline work.”

Johnson went on to state that the injury angle was done so that Matthews could return to Australia with his wife, WWE Superstar Rhea Ripley, to attend a family event.

There is currently no word on when Matthews is expected to return to AEW programming. It will be interesting to see what the plans look like for a possible feud between House of Black and Christian Cage’s Patriarchy in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned to WrestleZone for more information on Buddy Matthews’ impending return as it becomes available.
