Wednesday's edition of AEW Dynamite was an injury-laden one, not something the company was looking for heading into the Double or Nothing pay-per-view Saturday.

On the post-AEW Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez gave some updates.

Making their first appearance since March due to the pandemic, the Young Bucks returned at the end of the show in a brawl featuring The Elite vs. The Inner Circle. However, Matt Jackson may have injured a rib on his left side, either a break, torn cartilage, or a bad bruise, on a dive he and brother Nick did from the stands.

He was active in the brawl and was even taking chair shots and knees to his ribs, only visibily showing pain just before the show went off air. He is scheduled to be in Saturday's Elite vs. Inner Circle Stadium Stampede match.

Britt Baker looked to have seriously injured her right knee in a tag match with Nyla Rose, Kris Statlander, and Hikaru Shida. Baker was sitting in the corner when Statlander and Shida slammed Rose on her bent right knee.

Baker immediately grabbed her knee and shin and continued to work for a few spots afterward, clearly unable to put any weight on it. Rose dragged her to the corner and tagged herself in, allowing the AEW doctor to check on Baker. She is scheduled to face Statlander in a singles match Saturday.

Finally, Fenix appeared to be injured following a big dive spot onto the competitors for Saturday's Casino Ladder match, landing hard on his back and hip on the outside of the ring. Our Dave Meltzer confirmed Thursday afternoon that he will be working Saturday as planned.
