Chuck Taylor's Pro Wrestling Career Legitimately Over

Chuck Taylor’s pro-wrestling career has legitimately ended

After losing a parking lot brawl against former tag team partner Trent Beretta, it was claimed by Trent that Chuck Taylor’s career was over, with many assuming it was all part of the story. However, it seems that’s not the case and Taylor’s career has legitimately ended.

A report from Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter states that what was said on AEW TV regarding Taylor’s injury is accurate, with AEW lead announcer Excalibur revealing that due to the nature of his ankle fracture and the presence of ‘necrosis of the bone’ in fragments underneath the cartilage, Chuckie T’s injury is likely career-ending.

Meltzer noted that AEW has a whole host of stars on the roster who have suffered career-ending injuries only to return later down the road, with Adam Copeland, Saraya, Bryan Danielson, and Katsuyori Shibata all eventually working their way back into in-ring competition. However, sources state that even with surgery it’s more than likely that Taylor won’t be able to come back.

‘The Kentucky Gentleman’ has been with AEW since its foundation, and was previously a stand-out on the independent scene, most notably with Pro Wrestling Guerrilla and CHIKARA, with Taylor reigning as a two-time PWG World Champion in the former promotion.
