Tony Khan took part in a post-show media scrum after the AEW Full Gear 2021 pay-per-view on Saturday night at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.|
During the scrum, the AEW President spoke about the injury status of “The Murderhawk Monster” Lance Archer, when he could be returning to action and more.
Featured below are some of the highlights where he touches on this topic with the update.
On Lance Archer’s injury not being as bad as originally feared: “He’s here. He’s good. Thankfully, he came out of it good. It was a neck injury, not a head injury. He cleared all the impact testing, concussion, all the stuff over the last several weeks. He twisted his neck, but he’s good.”
On when Archer may return to action: “I’m not exactly sure. I don’t want to rush. We have so many great stars. Lance is a really important wrestler for us and has hit on so many great things for us like winning the IWGP US Title in the Texas Deathmatch. It was a great and he had a great match with (Hiroshi) Tanahashi. I don’t have an exact date, but I don’t see any point in rushing him. With a neck injury, you don’t want to rush it. He was here today and the doc was checking up on him. He’s in great spirits and he’s had a great 2021.”
