John Skyler has been cleared to return.
Skyler hasn't wrestled since June 2020 when he suffered a torn ACL on an episode of AEW Dark. Skyler was teaming with Brady Pierce in a bout against The Dark Order (Evil Uno & Stu Grayson) when the injury occurred. Skyler had made multiple appearances on AEW Dark during the pandemic era, including working a singles match against Billy Gunn in May 2020.
Skyler took to social media to reveal that he's been clear to compete and will return on January 30 when he takes on former IMPACT World Champion Eric Young at Lariato Pro Wrestling's New Year's Clash in a LPW Heavyweight Title tilt.
