After suffering an injury whilst competing on Rampage, an AEW wrestler is set to be out for at least three months.

The latest episode of AEW Rampage allowed the company to further build toward Forbidden Door and the debut of Collision.

Will Ospreay continued his preparation for his upcoming battle with Kenny Omega by teaming up with United Empire to take on Chaos. This was not the only Trios match on Rampage, as Aubrey Edwards made her competitive debut in a Mixed Trios Match, facing off against Karen Jarrett, Jeff Jarrett, and Jay Lethal.

But it was the main event that ensured fans went home happy, as Konosuke Takeshita and Bandido put on a clinic. Don Callis was ringside to support the recently turned heel Takeshita, for a match that saw both competitors adjust their style. Takeshita got the win after countering Bandido’s 21 Plex, and finished his opponent with a knee to the face.

Bandido has now shared news that during the match he suffered a broken wrist and that it will require surgery.

The former Ring of Honor World Champion took to Facebook to update fans and could not hide his disappointment.

“This is cracked! At the AEW Rampage event against Takeshita I broke my wrist and the first diagnosis has been that it is a triangular fibrocartilage complex injury and I need surgery as soon as possible.

On Monday I will go for the second and final opinion as soon as I have to cancel my closest commitments! an apology to all the fans.”

Bandido is now set to be out for several weeks, with a possible 12 weeks following surgery recovery time.

The Mexican born Star made his AEW debut in September 2022, taking on Chris Jericho on Dynamite.

Takeshita joined forces with Don Callis last month, the pair attacking Kenny Omega during a match with the Blackpool Combat Club.

With Omega set to defend the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship against Will Ospreay at next Sunday’s Forbidden Door, Omega will also be looking for an opportunity to exact revenge on Takeshita at a future event.
