AEW President Tony Khan has often been the target of criticism from both online commentators and industry veterans. Unfortunately, AEW is currently dealing with tons of injuries and Khan has now revealed he considered starting an injury report show in AEW.

Injuries are an unavoidable aspect of wrestling, capable of unexpectedly sidelining superstars at any moment. This reality poses challenges for bookers who must adapt carefully crafted schedules at a moment’s notice. Tony Khan’s AEW has recently experienced this firsthand, as several of its top stars have been sidelined due to injuries.

While speaking to Wrestling Observer Radio, Tony Khan talked about the communication of injuries within AEW, noting various considerations that influence their approach. He pointed out concerns about respecting wrestlers’ privacy when it comes to personal medical issues, which sometimes restricts the amount of information shared publicly.

In response to suggestions about improving transparency, Khan mentioned contemplating the idea of an injury report show. He explained potential formats, such as discussing injury updates on social media, as a way to keep fans informed while respecting wrestlers’ comfort levels with disclosing injury details.


“Sometimes it’s because people have private medical situations, sometimes I don’t wanna give out too much info about what is happening with somebody. Sometimes, to your point, we could communicate it more clearly. I’ve been thinking about doing an injury report show and I had some different thoughts on it, about doing something like talking about the injury report for social media. And I think the most important thing is people are comfortable. I don’t wanna talk too much about people’s injuries if they don’t want to.”

Dax Harwood is the latest talent facing setback due to lower back issue, revealing he’ll be sidelined from action while Darby Allin is also on the shelf, among many others. Regardless, we’ll have to see how AEW will continue to combat their multiple injury issues.
