AEW Star Sidelined With Lower Back Injury AEW

After an unexplained absence from programming, AEW star The Blade has revealed that he has been sidelined with a lower back injury.

The Butcher and The Blade have been an underrated part of the AEW tag team division since their debut with the company in 2020.

Recently, AEW fans has seen The Butcher compete in singles competition with The Blade absent from the company’s programming.

On April 21, The Blade took to Instagram to explain his absence and reveal that he suffered a lower back injury. He wrote:

“My apologies, it’s been awhile. I’m currently off the road nursing a lower back injury. 2 bulging discs, L2 L3 and L4 L5. Plus two ruptured discs, L3 L4 and L5 S1.

I’d like to thank @aew and @tonyrkhan for giving me this time off to heal. Plus, I’ve got the Buffalo,NY magic man pictured with me here, @anthony.albano.dpt .

Time off can be a rough place for athletes mentally. Anthony’s physical therapy is helping me stay on track and I can’t sing praises high enough about the sweet science behind his training.

“I’m not sure where this journey I’m on is gonna lead. But, I have a lot of options and a great team around me and that’s a beautiful thing. Love ya everybody”

The Blade has been out of action since February 4.

WrestleTalk would like to wish The Blade a speedy recovery from his injury.
