AEW Star Suffered Concussion In Dynasty Match

AEW Young Bucks Dynasty

A veteran AEW wrestler is dealing with a concussion following a very physical match at the Dynasty PPV.

At the first-ever AEW Dynasty pay-per-view, the Tag Team Titles were up for grabs since they were vacated a month earlier by a retired Sting & Darby Allin. The Young Bucks (Matthew & Nicholas Jackson) made it to the finals of the tournament against FTR’s Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler. The two legendary tag teams faced off three times before (FTR led 2-1), but this time their title match would be a Ladder Match.

The two teams had an incredible, physical match with plenty of moments that nearly ended it. After about 20 minutes of intense action, it looked like Harwood would win for his team until Jack Perry showed up out of nowhere to knock Harwood off the ladder. This allowed Nick Jackson to climb the ladder and retrieve the titles to make The Young Bucks the first-ever three-time Tag Team Champions in AEW history.

It has been reported by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Harwood suffered a concussion during the match. It’s not known how much time Harwood will miss because a concussion timeline could be anything from days to weeks or even months. It depends on the diagnosis given by doctors.

In his ratings for the show, Dave Meltzer rated that Young Bucks-FTR Dynasty match at 4.5* on a scale that goes up to five for some people, but with Meltzer, he goes much higher including a 6.5* rating for the Will Ospreay-Bryan Danielson match.

AEW Boss Tony Khan Selling Injury Suffered On Dynamite

After their Tag Team Title win at Dynasty, The Young Bucks duo joined Kazuchika Okada of The Elite in trying to get Jack Perry re-instated by AEW’s CEO/GM Tony Khan.

In the main event segment of AEW Dynamite, Tony Khan agreed to reinstate Perry. That turned out to be a bad move since Perry punched Tony in the ribs with a microphone. After The Young Bucks made their way out there, they gave Khan a Meltzer Driver which has been renamed the TK Driver.

Just one day after the heinous attack on Dynamite, Tony Khan was in the offices of the Jacksonville Jaguars, which is an NFL franchise owned by his father Shad Khan. In clip that got a lot of attention, Tony was wearing a neckbrace to sell the idea that he got beat up one night earlier on Dynamite.
