Trent has been part of the AEW family for quite a long time now. Apart from being a pro wrestler, Trent has other interests which include gaming. Now it appears Trent explained how he got injured because of video games.

Beretta joined AEW in 2019 making his debut alongside Chuck Taylor at the first-ever Double or Nothing pay-per-view. In 2021, it was revealed that Beretta underwent neck fusion surgery.

While speaking on Talk Is Jericho, Beretta talked about her reason for his neck fusion surgery. Trent Beretta revealed that he started doing motion capture work for video games, which ultimately led to his neck injury.

“It was on a crash pad… It didn’t even have to be the move it was. We needed four moves where the guy on top slips behind, started from like a fireman’s carry, (and) the guy on top slips behind.


We need four different moves as reversals… (and) we’ll use whatever, and somebody said, ‘Dragon suplex.’ Luckily it was on a crash pad, but the guy, I don’t think, was a guy who did Dragon suplexes.

“And he threw it how you would throw a German (suplex) with a high arc, but he had my neck instead of my waist, so I just landed right on top of my head on a crash pad.

And it wasn’t like, ‘Oh, no, I can’t wrestle.’ It was just slowly, for over five or six years, whatever it was, like it started getting worse and worse.”

Trent missed the majority of 2021 due to his fusion neck surgery but has since returned to being an active in-ring competitor. He will also compete at AEW All In at London’s Wembley Stadium as part of the six-on-six Stadium Stampede match.
