• AEW Wrestler Almost Died Last Year After His Botch
During a match against Eddie Kingston last year on AEW Dynamite, Lance Archer went for a Moonsault and landed on his head.
Because of this botch, he was out of action for a few months. You can watch it below:
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Archer revealed that he almost died due to this botch.
Below is what he said:
“I feel great. I mean, I’m beyond blessed for the fact that I actually didn’t break my neck.
You know, a centimeter a different way, and it could have been a completely different result.
I basically gave myself an extreme version of whiplash, because I bounced off my forehead. But if it had been any part of the crown of my head, I probably would have been paralyzed or dead. So beyond blessed that that didn’t happen.
The medical staff here have been extremely amazing. You know, they have kept me on the road, and they’ve kept me in physical therapy here with our guys. I’ve done everything they’ve asked me to do before coming back.
Even before this match, every day the different physical exercises they’ve asked me to do, I have stayed on top of them. They have been extremely happy, and like I said, I feel great.”
Archer lost to “Hangman” Adam Page in a Texas Death Match for the AEW World Championship on tonight’s Dynamite.
