Tony Schiavone Addresses AEW's Current Injury Issues
AEW’s injury list is ever expanding
AEW are currently in the midst of an injury crisis, with Santana being the latest to go on the shelf during Blood & Guts II on June 29.
Many top level stars are currently out of action for various reasons, and on the recent AEW Unrestricted podcast, Tony Schiavone addressed the mounting injuries and how AEW are coping with them:
“One of the most challenging things has been the injuries we have had here in AEW. It’s kind of amazing. It’s a challenge to really be able to put on a show when you don’t have your big stars and it’s not to say that we don’t have big stars left because we do but, we don’t have CM Punk right now, we don’t have Bryan Danielson, we don’t have Kenny Omega, Kyle O’Reilly is out, Samoa Joe is off doing a project. Adam Cole has been hurt again. Dax Harwood of FTR is not hurt, but he is banged up. You may see the shoulder tape that he has on. Jungle Boy’s not been around for a little while, MJF walked out.
“So it’s been a challenge really to put together a TV show and I know because I’m involved in that process. But, then when you circle back and you think about what we just saw at Forbidden Door, yeah, I know there was a lot of Japanese stars from New Japan Pro-Wrestling there and some American stars and obviously, some stars internationally but, it’s been a pretty cool time to be able to say, hey, we’re doing well despite,” said Schiavone.
