Mexico’s El Hijo del Vikingo has become one of the most talked-about names in pro wrestling recently. This is largely due to his incredible match against Kenny Omega on a previous episode of AEW Dynamite. However, it appears he is currently suffering from a hip injury.
El Hijo del Vikingo is one of the most in-demand pro wrestlers right now, as he has competed for AEW, ROH and AAA, on top of his indie bookings. During last week’s ROH tapings, Vikingo partnered up with Metalik and Gravity against Serpentico, Angelico, and Tony Nese.
Vikingo ended up suffering an injury, which many hoped was not a serious one. He even ended up in a wheelchair. While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer stated that Vikingo is dealing with a hip injury, which might end up nixing his MegaChampionship match in AAA against Kommander this weekend.
“He got hurt, as we talked about last night. He got hurt on Saturday night. And it’s a hip injury. He’s got a title match in Mexico on Saturday against Kommander, and the last I heard last night is that it’s not 100% that he won’t be doing it, although it’s probable. They’re holding out hope. He was talking like, ‘I’m going to try to rehab all week and see.’ There’s no guarantee that he’s wrestling on Saturday. It’s touch and go. So that’s the situation. But he could be out for a little while, but he didn’t break his hip, thank God. It was a pretty serious injury.”
Only time will tell whether El Hijo Del Vikingo will be physically able to compete this weekend, as his injury seems to be more serious than initially thought.
