MLW needs as much attention as they can get, but they never want to draw headlines because of a top member of their roster going out of action. Sadly, that is the case with Alex Hammerstone.
Alex Hammerstone was making waves in MLW, but it seems that he has to take some time off. The standout star is out of action as he was injured in the War Chamber match that aired on Tuesday night.
Sean Sapp reported on the matter to note that Rickey Shane Page had to also “adjust on the fly” during that match due to the unexpected injury.
Fightful Select has learned that Alex Hammerstone was injured during the War Chamber match that aired on REELZ Tuesday night. The injury caused him to leave the match early, which led to a lot of the planned match to be cut out, including the finish and aftermath.
We’re told Rickey Shane Page got a lot of credit backstage and with MLW for adjusting on the fly and making things work. He was brought in to work as an agent as well as a wrestler.
MLW ended up filming an Alex Kane and Davey Boy Smith JR angle to help make up for the time lost due to the abbreviated War Chamber match. Production crew and talent were credited heavily for making it work.
It was noted that, “the fear was Hammerstone tore his groin. However, it appears the injury wasn’t as extreme as feared. He’s day-to-day, and was able to work an angle at the Battle Riot tapings.”
We’re hoping for the best, because MLW could obviously use as much talent as they can get. Alex Hammerstone also has a ton of potential, and only time will tell what could be next for him after MLW.
