AEW star Matt Jackson is currently out of action with a partially torn bicep, according to recent reports.
The injury occurred during last month’s three-way AEW Trios Championship match on Dynamite. AEW has since done an angle with The Young Bucks being stretchered into an ambulance after being attacked by the Blackpool Combat Club.
While speaking on the latest installment of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the hope is for Jackson to be back in time for AEW’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view event on May 28.
“He’s getting therapy, of course, for the injury, a partially torn biceps,” said Meltzer. “The timetable he was given was 6-8 weeks, and that is enough time for Double or Nothing, but that’s not a guarantee, but it’s certainly a strong hope and obviously by watching the TV…it looks like The Young Bucks, Hangman Page, and Kenny Omega against The Blackpool Combat Club…looks like an eight-man tag team…could be happening at Double or Nothing. I don’t know that. It just feels like the setup.”
Meltzer also added that if Jackson is not ready for Double or Nothing, it will be shortly thereafter.
The Young Bucks have been embroiled in a feud with The Blackpool Combat Club, which consists of PAC, Malakai Black, and Brody King. Hangman Page and Kenny Omega are also involved in the storyline, with Page recently making the save for Omega after he was attacked by the BCC.
Fans will be eagerly awaiting updates on Jackson’s injury status and hoping for a speedy recovery so that he can get back to action and continue his success in AEW.
