Injuries for any athlete are never fun and now AEW’s Marq Quen has admitted that he was left feeling depressed after missing over a year of action.

Marq Quen last competed in an AEW ring back in November 2022 when he and his Private Party partner Isiah Kassidy lost to Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett. Since then Quen has been out with an injury that required surgery but that changed on the 3rd of January edition of AEW Dynamite when he returned to the show to reunite with Kassidy.

Speaking in a video on Isiah Kassidy’s YouTube channel,

I’ve been getting surgery, I’ve been staying at home, crying, miserable, depressed. It took a lot for me to get the surgery because… I was told that I can heal on my own. So when I was trying to heal on my own, they told me that I wouldn’t get the strength back that I had before.

So then that’s when I was like, by that time, it was already February, March. Then I was like, why didn’t they say that from the beginning? I would have got the surgery back in December. So that’s why I got the surgery in April. Got this nice little scar right here, you see that?

Marq Quen Ready To Get Back In AEW Ring

As for what Marq Quen’s injury actually was, he told his tag team partner that he had suffered a torn pec and admitted he isn’t sure if he’s fully ready to go:

I tore my pec, and I had to get a reconstructed pectoral tendon. Doctor words. I feel great. Ready, back in action. Am I ready to get back in the ring? Of course. Of course, I’m ready to get back in the ring. [Kassidy asked if he’s confident] So about that, am I confident? Yes.

Am I ready? I don’t know. I don’t know who I’m facing, I don’t know what it is. So all the nerves and all that other stuff’s gonna come into play. Gonna get blown up just because of not knowing what I’m gonna do. If I don’t get blown up, that means I didn’t do enough.

It remains to be seen when Private Party will have their first match together following Marq Quen’s return. During his absence, Kassidy became known as Brother Zay and associated with The Hardy Boyz. Jeff Hardy recently laid bare his frustrations about his current role in AEW.
