Tay Melo Not Medically Cleared For In-Ring Action

Tay Melo out with an injury

Tay Melo has been dealing with a long-term injury and she is currently not medically cleared to compete in All Elite Wrestling. Melo has not wrestled since she and Anna Jay lost a Street Fight to Ruby Soho and Willow Nightingale on the January 13 edition of AEW Rampage. 

Melo revealed to Elite POV

"Yes, I have a protrusion on my back, so it's something that I've been dealing with for more than 10 years by now. I know how to go about it. So, before the match, I started feeling it a little bit, and the doctors in AEW, they're super good. I told them, and they helped me see if I was okay to do it. They asked me, and I was like, 'I'm gonna do it. Let's go.' I'll never say no, let me tell you unless I'm really dying. I was like, I'm in pain. I knew I was in pain. The day before, let me tell you, I couldn't walk. I couldn't walk at the airport. The walk was so long we had to get a wheelchair for me because I was not able to walk for too long. It was really bad.

"Then, after the match, I checked everything. I went to the doctor...I went to a couple of different doctors and our doctor in AEW. So I'm not cleared for now, but I will be really soon. I'm good, don't worry. I want to be cleared, but the doctor is trying to hold me back a little bit to make sure I'm 100%. They told me I will be cleared in the next couple of weeks. So I'll be fine."

Melo's Jericho Appreciation Society partner Anna Jay is also dealing with an injury, having suffered fractured ribs in the aforementioned Street Fight.
