Fans who watched the August 5 episode of AEW Dynamite noticed that Dax Harwood could not finish the 12-man tag team bout that opened the show. Dax was helped to the back after suffering what appeared to be a knee injury.
Speaking on the Battleground podcast, Dax provided an update on his injury.
"I played high school football and someone chop blocked me and I tore my ACL, that was in 2002. My right knee has always given me some problems. I had a clean out of my knee and the doctor who did my surgery in 2004, left an actual pants button in my knee. That button had been there for a decade and chipping away at my cartilage. I have this terrible knee and it's gotten way better. I wear the brace on my knee for mental (reasons)."
He continued by saying, "Cash came off the rope with an elbow drop, I just tweaked my knee a little and I haven't gotten an MRI yet, I'm just doing some rehab and icing it and taking precautionary measures. The only bad thing is, we have looked so forward to Tag Team Appreciation Night on August 12 and we were looking forward to having a match and we're not going to be able to do that because of the injury."
It is unknown how long Dax will be out of action.
AEW will celebrate Tag Team Appreciation Night on Wednesday with two tag team bouts and special appearances by The Brain Busters and The Rock N Roll Express. The celebratory night was part of FTR's contracts when they signed with AEW on television.
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
