UPDATE x 2: TNA is currently taking a “wait and see”
approach to the tag title situation after Davey Richards broke his leg. They are
in no hurry to make a decision because they have enough television taped to last
until September 25. If Richards will be out of action more than a month or two,
they will strip the Wolves of the belts.
Right now, they are planning to keep the titles on the team. It all depends
on how long of a recovery Richards will need.
UPDATE: As previously reported, Davey Richards suffered a
broken tibia last night in Indiana, Pennsylvania. The spot happened when he went
for a baseball slide to the outside of the ring and his foot was caught in the
mat. It’s the same kind of freak accident that led to Rob Van Dam’s broken ankle
in ECW in 1999.
Richards wrote on Twitter: “Thanks so much to everyone for the best
wishes- truly amazing. I’ll be ok- could always be worse!! I can’t help but be
thankful for the injury. It truly shows the greatness of the fans and the place
I work for. Human compassion is amazing.”
TNA has already taped television for the next several weeks so a title change
is not immediately needed due to the injury.
