Joey Janela explains why he's been off television.
On June 1, Janela announced he would miss upcoming GCW shows as he was dealing with an injury. He didn't provide further details at the time, but in an interview with The Wrestling Perspective, revealed that he's been dealing with a concussion.
"I'll be coming back soon. I'm dealing with an injury right now, a little concussion deal. Shit happens, everyone knows that, it's wrestling. All sports, everyone gets concussions. I'll be cleared from that in the coming weeks, maybe the coming weekend. I'll be good and hopefully doing AEW stuff soon. Things were about to pick up for me right before [the concussion]," he said.
Janela last wrestled on the May 28 episode of AEW Dynamite, losing to Hangman Page. He had been regularly wrestling on AEW Dark and Dark: Elevation, where he is involved in a storyline with his tag team partner Sonny Kiss. Janela and Kiss split as a team with Janela ready to enjoy Bad Boy Summer.
In other Janela news, he recently trolled the Seminole County School Board Meeting and ran into Drake Wuertz. You can find his full comments on what happened by clicking here.
