Matt Jackson comments on his injury.
On March 28, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reported that Matt Jackson is dealing with a partially torn bicep, which occurred during a thee-way trios match on the March 15 episode of AEW Dynamite. Jackson reportedly opted to not have surgery.
On the newest episode of Being The Elite, Jackson commented on his injury and discussed his decision to forgo surgery. He describe dhow he's hopeful that other forms of therapy will decrease the amount of time that he'll be out of action. Jackson also noted that he feels good, and he hopes to return as soon as possible.
“You may have heard I suffered a torn bicep. It’s a partially torn bicep. After consulting with multiple doctors and wrestlers, other people in the industry who have suffered the exact same injury, I have decided not to do the surgery. Instead, as I said, we are on our way to LA to start other forms of therapy. These other forms of therapy shall turn what would have been months out on the shelf to only just weeks. That is the hope. I feel pretty good. I don’t know if I’m just a freak. Dana says I am. But I feel pretty good, and my arm feels pretty good. So the hope is, let’s get in there, let’s do these other therapies, let’s do the PRP, and let’s get me back in the ring asap. That is the hope," Jackson said.
Jackson went on to note that he's hurt, but he's not "out", and he's in good spirits. He made it clear that he's looking forward to getting back in the ring.
