Tony Khan has provided an update on the injury status of Lance Archer, who has been out of action since October 23.
During his match against Eddie Kingston, Lance Archer tried to perform a moonsault but under-rotated and landed pretty much on the top of his head, leading to the match being rushed to its finish.
In a new update, Tony Khan said (via the Wrestling Observer Newsletter):
“He’s good. He is good and thankfully he came out of it good. It was a neck injury, not a head injury, so he cleared all of the impact testing, concussion stuff and over the last several weeks they determined he twisted his neck, but he’s good.
“I’m not exactly sure (when he’ll be back). I don’t want to rush it. We have so many great stars and Lance is a really important wrestler for us, he’s done so many great things for us like winning the IWGP US Title in the Texas Death match in his home state over Jon Moxley. It was a great, great match and he also had a great match in New Japan with Tanahashi.
“No I don’t have an exact date, but I don’t see any point in rushing it really. It’s a neck injury, so you don’t want to rush it, but he was here today and the doc’s checking up on him and he’s doing great. He’s in great spirits and he’s had a great 2021.”
It’s great to hear that Archer’s doing well and we continue to wish him all the best for his recovery.
