Tony Khan Doesn't Want To Rush Lance Archer's AEW In-ring Return

Archer has been out since late October

Lance Archer has been out of action since late October, when ‘The Murderhawk Monster’ landed awkwardly off of a moonsault during a bout with Eddie Kingston on AEW: Dynamite.

Speculation mounted about the nature of Archer’s injury, with some thinking Archer was out with a concussion, but AEW President Tony Khan has given an update on Archer, saying the following during the post-Full Gear media scrum:

“He’s here, he’s good, and thankfully, he came out of it good. It was a neck injury, not a head injury. He cleared all the impact testing, concussion, all the stuff over the last several weeks. They determined he twisted his neck, but he’s good.”

Further to earlier reports, Khan did state that there’s no timeframe on Archer’s return, and that he doesn’t want to rush anything:

“I’m not exactly sure,” continued Khan “I don’t want to rush. We have so many great stars. Lance is a really important wrestler for us and has hit on so many great things for us.”
