Dante Martin Didn’t Feel Broken Bone Injury At ROH Supercard Of Honor



Dante Martin was sidelined for eight months following ROH Supercard of Honor 2023, where he suffered a broken fibula and dislocated ankle.

Martin finally returned to AEW/ROH programming at the end of November.

On a recent edition of the “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, Martin revealed that he didn’t feel the injury when it happened due to the adrenaline rush.

He said, “Luckily, I had the adrenaline going. As soon as it happened, weirdly, I looked at it, and it felt like I was in a dream. I took a Canadian (destroyer) off the top rope through four stacked tables. My left leg hit the ground slightly before my right. I had a broken fibula and a dislocated ankle. Super weird because the first thing I did was look at it, and you can see me roll over to my butt and, I tried to put it back. Doc Sampson, luckily we had Doc come running over, ‘No, no. no, don’t touch it.’ It felt like I was in a dream because I wasn’t feeling anything, the adrenline was going. Originally, I thought of the Anderson Silva leg break. I thought, ‘he did that and fought for another seven or eight years. I think I can wrestle again.’ I go to the hospital and they were super good there. I was out of the hospital in three hours. They put my ankle back in and they hadn’t seen the broken fibula yet, it was just a crack. It was in a compound fracture. I went back and was chilling with everyone, ‘Hey guys, I’m okay.’ I had to wait five days because my leg was in a splint in LA and I ended up flying back, getting another x-ray, ‘Yeah, your fibula is broken as well.’ ‘Ah man, am I going to need surgery?’ ‘Yeah.’ I have a plate and eight screws in there now. Now, I’m feeling 100% and feeling maybe 110% because the titanium is really stronger. It’s almost stronger than my bone. It’s going to be hard to break it again.“
