AEW has provided a “medical update” on Awesome Kong after she was attacked by her Nightmare Collective allies on this week’s AEW Dark. On Tuesday’s episode, she got into an argument with Mel after the latter lost to Hikaru Shida.
The two argued until Luther got involved and took Mel’s side, holding her while Mel attacked. They sent Kong through the barrier and then Mel leg dropped her onto the steel steps. AEW’s update, as you can see below, is that she suffered “serious injuries” and “We do not know when or if she will return to action.” It’s believed this was done to write Kong off AEW television while she films the final season of GLOW.
