AEW wrestler Buddy Matthews is currently working through a shoulder injury.

Matthews revealed the injury in an Instagram post on Tuesday. The post included video of Matthews lifting weights at the gym.

"Always a work in progress," Matthews wrote. "Dealing with a shoulder injury which limits a lot of my shoulder movements. But slowly increasing the weight again. [Be] better than you were yesterday!"

Matthews was most recently in action on Dynamite two weeks ago, losing to PAC in an AEW All-Atlantic Championship qualifying match. The first-ever All-Atlantic Champion will be determined when PAC, Miro, Tomohiro Ishii, and either Malakai Black or Penta Oscuro face off in a four-way match at Forbidden Door this Sunday.

Matthews is a member of House of Black alongside Black and Brody King.

Matthews signed with AEW and made his debut on Dynamite this February. Formerly known as Buddy Murphy, he was released by WWE during the company's June 2021 roster cuts.
