Matt Jackson suffered a bicep injury earlier this year and was expected to be out of action for a long time. That said, he is much better now, but Jackson recently recalled how he was told he would be out of action for several months after his bicep injury.

Matt Jackson ended up suffering a bicep injury during The Elite’s triple threat trios match against the Jericho Appreciation Society, and House of Black a few months ago. As previously reported, Matt Jackson’s bicep injury was legitimate one and was expected to keep him out of action for a while.

Last month, Matt Jackson felt he was doing better than expected. Matt Jackson even doubled up on treatment so that he could recover from his injury faster than expected. That is what happened as he competed at Double Or Nothing last week.

Matt Jackson took to his Instagram and uploaded a post with a series of photos, where he reflected on his bicep injury. Jackson recalled how doctors told him he would be out of action for several months after surgery, but he opted not to get surgery instead.


I got hurt about 10 weeks ago, literally on day one of the beginning of a very important story that we started. I was told there was a good chance I wouldn’t be cleared to perform again for 6-7 months after surgery. Surgeons insisted I get the muscle repaired immediately. I opted not to do surgery, but rather try other therapeutic options that’d get me back quicker. I had faith that through proper rehabilitation, supplementation & prayer, I’d be back wrestling with a target goal of Double or Nothing. There was clearly a lot of doubt, but I wasn’t going to miss it no matter what. In fact, I wasn’t going to miss any of the events leading to it either. During the process, I lived in fear that I was making a huge mistake. That my arm would never be the same again, or that I’d lose a bunch of strength. I had anxiety and many sleepless nights, that I’d let everyone including myself down. Thankfully my wife Dana, my family, close friends, & various medical staff members supported & showed their love these past couple of months. And, I hit my target. Wrestling with my ELITE family by my side in Las Vegas meant so much to me because the journey there was pretty rough.

Thank you to everyone who’s put up with me, my endless chatter about my rehab, and asking you to watch me flex so you can tell me how great I look. 😂

A few days removed from my first match back, my arm is great. My strength is completely back & I couldn’t be happier. Everything else on my body, including my foot? Not so much

Matt Jackson also got hurt pretty badly during the Anarchy in The Arena match at Double Or Nothing and even showed off his bloody wounds afterwards. We will have to wait and see what AEW has planned for The Elite next, after what transpired at Double Or Nothing.

What’s your view on Matt Jackson’s recovery? Are you glad he was able to make it in time for AEW Double Or Nothing? Let us know in the comments!
