Last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite was a night of intense action and drama, particularly regarding the ongoing feud between the Blackpool Combat Club and The Elite. While Bryan Danielson’s return and heel turn were the talk of the town, an AEW talent’s injury became the central point of discussion.

During a backstage interview segment with Hangman Adam Page and Don Callis, the Blackpool Combat Club suddenly attacked both Page and Callis. In the chaos that ensued, Jon Moxley landed a forearm on Callis, causing him to fall and hit his head on the floor. Fans noticed that something was wrong with Callis, as he was shown with a nasty gash on his head as the segment ended.

It was previously reported that the injury was not planned and Callis did hit his head as he went down following Moxley’s attack. Later in the night, the AEW commentary team revealed that Callis was receiving medical attention, which was not just part of the storyline but was actually legitimate.

Bryan Alvarez of The Wrestling Observer provided a further update on Callis’ condition after Dynamite. Alvarez took to Twitter and revealed that Callis had been kept overnight in the hospital and had received several stitches for what was described as a gash that looked like he had been hit with a hatchet. However, Alvarez also confirmed that there was no concussion, only the need for stitches.

The unexpected injury to Don Callis reminds people that injuries can happen at anytime in pro wrestling, no matter what. Regardless, we are glad to know that Callis did not suffer any major injury and will be fine to return on AEW television.
