• AEW Wrestler Injured At An Indy Event Due To A Fan Throwing His Drink In The Ring
AEW wrestler Lio Rush got injured during a match at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla’s Battle of Los Angeles event.
Before the match, a fan threw his drink at Lio’s opponent, Buddy Matthews (fka Buddy Murphy in WWE). A part of the ring mat was still wet during their match due to this.
When Buddy went for the Curb Stomp, he slipped and it ended up injuring Lio. The fan who threw the drink was ejected from the event.
Lio revealed on Twitter that he suffered a clean dislocation in his left shoulder.
Below is what he posted:
“Clean dislocation in my left shoulder (Opposite to my previous shoulder injury). MRI in 2-3 weeks to hopefully find that there’s no severe ligament damage/tear.
To all the boys in the back and crew at PWG last night that were super attentive and extremely helpful, thank you so much. More frustration and disappointment than anything else at the way last night ended.
To all of my fans and supporters, thank you for the outpouring love and support.
Saddened by the hate speech, racial slurs, and throwing of objects in the ring by ‘fans’ who attended Night 2 of BOLA, but nothing will diminish my love for this sport and stop me from performing for those who appreciate my craft. I will be back. See you soon.”
Lio recently revealed that he will be leaving All Elite Wrestling on February 14.
