Recent reports indicate that AEW wrestler Matt Jackson is currently sidelined due to a partially torn bicep. The injury reportedly occurred during a three-way AEW Trios Championship match on Dynamite last month. As a result of the injury, AEW has incorporated an angle where The Young Bucks were stretchered into an ambulance after an attack by the Blackpool Combat Club.
According to Dave Meltzer on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, the goal is for Jackson to recover in time for AEW’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view event on May 28th
“He’s getting therapy, of course, for the injury, a partially torn biceps,” said Meltzer. “The timetable he was given was 6-8 weeks, and that is enough time for Double or Nothing, but that’s not a guarantee, but it’s certainly a strong hope and obviously by watching the TV…it looks like The Young Bucks, Hangman Page, and Kenny Omega against The Blackpool Combat Club…looks like an eight-man tag team…could be happening at Double or Nothing. I don’t know that. It just feels like the setup.”
