Matt Menard Suffered Multiple Injuries At AEW Blood & Guts

Add another AEW name to the injury list.

In a new video posted by JOFO In The Ring, Matt Menard of the Jericho Appreciation Society revealed that he tore parts of his shoulder, labrum, and rotator cuff during AEW Blood & Guts.

June 29, Detroit, Michigan, Blood & Guts, big cage match. Two rings. Hell of an ordeal. Very early on in that match, I kind of get dumped on my head by Santana. It wasn’t pretty. Ended up actually, tearing parts of my shoulder, my labrum, my rotator cuff. If you’re wondering, ‘Geez, Daddy Magic, early on in the match. Didn’t you climb to the top of the cage to save Chris Jericho? Did you climb to the top of the cage to save Chris Jericho with a torn shoulder, with your shoulder torn to shreds?’ The answer is yes. I’m basically a hero. The good news here, is that it doesn’t look like it’s going to require surgery. We’re rehabbing it, injected some stem cells into the shoulder. The bad news is I will not be able to participate in the event for the IWS,”

Time will tell how long Menard will be out of action for with the injuries but the good news is he doesn’t need surgery to repair the damage of the injuries.
