Ruby Soho had her hand slammed in a car door during last week’s AEW Dynamite: Blood & Guts broadcast. Chris Jericho sent Tay Conti to do his dirty work to send a message to Ruby’s friend, Eddie Kingston. Many fans have been wondering if the angle was to write Ruby off TV to recover from a legitimate injury.
That does not appear to be the case. Ruby Soho wrestled independent shows after the on-screen angle with Tay Conti. The injury is simply part of the storyline.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer confirmed that Ruby Soho isn’t legitimately injured. While she appeared in a protective brace on this week’s Dynamite, it’s just for the storyline. That should put to bed any speculation that Soho is actually hurt.
“So, she’s not hurt, because she was doing indies over the weekend. She had a cast, of course, because they did the gimmick. But, the point is, last week we’re going, ‘Is this a cover for an injury?’ and it’s just an angle. There’s no real injury.”
During last night’s episode of Dynamite, Ruby appeared in a backstage promo with Eddie Kingston and Ortiz. She sold the injury with the brace, but the story was furthered when Tay Conti bragged about her deed to her former friend Anna Jay. Ruby Soho’s injury is playing out as part of a much larger series of intertwined stories.
AEW can’t afford many more injuries. With several top stars on the shelf including Bryan Danielson, CM Punk, and Adam Cole, Tony Khan is hoping to see the remainder of the roster stay healthy. Fortunately, Ruby Soho is just fine.
