Wheeler Yuta Has Been Battling Concussion Issues Leading To AEW Absence

The ROH Pure Champion has now been out of action for four months.

Wheeler Yuta hasn’t wrestled since January 10, when he lost a Triple Crown Championship match against Eddie Kingston. Since then, he’s been largely absent from AEW TV and wasn’t involved in the planned CMLL match at the end of March.

Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp is told that Yuta has been dealing with concussion symptoms for months. As of now we haven’t learned a timetable for his potential return. When we last asked about Yuta in March, the hope was that the injury would not sideline him long. However, that hasn’t been the case.

We send our best to Yuta.
