It’s the nature of the match. There are a lot of gimmick matches in wrestling and some of them are more dangerous than others. Some of these matches are going to cause all kinds of injuries and are designed to be violent. That is going to raise the chance for injuries no matter how experienced you are, which unfortunately was the case last week in one of the more violent matches in recent memory.

According to Wrestling Observer Live, Chris Jericho suffered a legitimate elbow injury after AEW’s Blood & Guts on the May 5 edition of Dynamite. It is not clear what kind of injury Jericho suffered, though it was announced as a dislocated elbow during this week’s show. The injury took place during the fall after the end of the match when Maxwell Jacob Friedman shoved him off the cage and through the stage. There is no word on if Jericho will miss any ring time, though he did not get physical this week.

It was a brutal ending. Check out the fall and Jericho’s return the following week:
