Cash Wheeler Reveals He Suffered Nerve Damage Following Gruesome AEW Arm Injury

A nasty injury

Cash Wheeler has revealed he suffered nerve damage as a result of his gruesome arm injury on AEW Dynamite in July.

Wheeler suffered the injury when FTR faced off against Inner Circle's Santana & Ortiz on July 28 and his arm got caught on the turnbuckle in a freak incident. This resulted in a deep gash in Wheeler's arm and Cash immediately sought medical attention as Dax Harwood and Proud and Powerful went straight to the finish. 

FTR haven't stepped in the squared circle since, but AEW announced last night that FTR and Santana & Ortiz will face off in a rematch on the September 1 edition of Dynamite.

Reflecting on the announcement on Twitter, Wheeler revealed the extent of his injury, writing: "August [July] 28th I had a hook stab into my arm and rip it open. For almost a month I've been dealing with loss of grip strength, loss of feeling/nerve damage, and wondering if this is even worth it anymore. If this is the end, we're taking a pound of flesh with us."

Dax Harwood also teased FTR would be disbanding following the Dynamite match, simply tweeting, "One more ride."
