Tay Melo Reveals Why She Isn’t Cleared To Wrestle Right Now



AEW wrestler Tay Melo revealed that she’s been dealing with a lingering back injury, and gave an update on her in-ring status in a recent interview.

Melo sat down with Elite POV to talk about the back issues she’s had, and when fans can expect to see her back in action in the squared circle.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the back issues she’s had for a while: “I have a protrusion on my back, so it’s something that I’ve been dealing with for more than 10 years by now. I know how to go about it. Before the match, I started feeling it a little bit, and the doctors in AEW, they’re super good. I told them, they helped me see if it was okay to do it. They asked me, and I was like, ‘I’m gonna do it. Let’s go.’ I’ll never say no, let me tell you, unless I’m really dying. I was like, ‘I’m in pain.’ I knew I was in pain. The day before, let me tell you, I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t walk. At the airport, the walk was so long, we had to get a wheelchair for me because I was not able to walk for too long. It was really bad.”

Not being cleared to compete right now: “It was getting better. The doctors helped me a little bit. The day of the match, in the morning, they were helping me with a massage and stuff. So I was able to do the match, bur after the match, I knew it would suck because I was already in pain. All the girls and everybody was so nice, and they were helping me because they saw in my face. I’m always super excited, I was excited, but you could tell that I was in pain. I’m trying to kind of hide it and let people get worried about me. I’m like, ‘No, I’ll be fine.’ But people know. Then after the match, I checked everything. I went to a couple different doctors and our doctor in AEW. So I’m not cleared for now, but I will be really soon. I’m good, don’t worry. I want to be cleared, but the doctor trying to hold me a little bit to make sure I’m 100%. They told me I will be cleared in the next couple weeks, so I’ll be fine.”
