Pro Wrestling isn’t ballet and sometimes old injuries can creep up on you. It appears that happened to FTR’s Dax Harwood.
Dax Harwood recently spoke to the Battleground podcast where he explained that he has an old football injury that sometimes come back. He tore his right ACL in 2002 and he’s had problems with his knee ever since.
He “tweaked” his knee on Dynamite last week, but he’s been rehabbing it on his own without having an MRI.
“I played high school football and someone chop blocked me and I tore my ACL, that was in 2002. My right knee has always given me some problems. I had a clean out of my knee and the doctor who did my surgery in 2004, left an actual pants button in my knee. That button had been there for a decade and chipping away at my cartilage. I have this terrible knee and it’s gotten way better. I wear the brace on my knee for mental (reasons).”
“Cash came off the rope with an elbow drop, I just tweaked my knee a little and I haven’t gotten an MRI yet, I’m just doing some rehab and icing it and taking precautionary measures. The only bad thing is, we have looked so forward to Tag Team Appreciation Night on August 12 and we were looking forward to having a match and we’re not going to be able to do that because of the injury.”
FTR are ready for Tag Team Appreciation night on Dynamite this week. It’s a big night for the Top Guys as Dynamite will present some great tag team action and acknowledge some legends on the show.
Hopefully, Harwood’s knee continues to stay strong because the former Revival is just getting started in AEW.
