This past week’s Fight for the Fallen edition of AEW Dynamite featured one of the more highly anticipated tag team matchups in company history, as Santana & Ortiz faced off against FTR. But the match was abruptly cut short, when Cash Wheeler suffered a terrifying injury during the contest.
I previously updated everyone that Cash would be okay after suffering a horrifying laceration to his right forearm during the match against Santana & Ortiz on Dynamite. I discussed the incident further on the latest episode of The Push podcast and gave more details on how the injury actually occurred. I was told that Wheeler impaled his forearm on the turnbuckle hook that connects to the ring post, causing a serious cut to open up.
I was also told that Wheeler did not have to go to the hospital for treatment as doctors were able to stitch up the wound in the back on site.
“It impaled his arm. I guess the hook on the turnbuckle, it’s to the side, so when he fell it just cut his forearm, so the turnbuckle hook took a chunk out of his arm, and it was bad bro, it was bad. They instantly had to call an audible and change up the finish of the match.”
Currently I do not know how much, or if Cash will be required to miss any time. I was told that he was said to be in good spirits backstage at Dynamite following the injury, and even attended an MMA event Friday night.
We will keep you updated if we hear anything more about Cash Wheeler’s status after suffering a freak and nasty injury on this past week’s episode of Dynamite.
