AEW’s Darius Martin out six to nine months after ‘nasty car accident’

Malakai Black revealed the news on the Universal Wrestling Podcast.

Darius Martin's recent injury is said to be the result of a "nasty car accident." 

It was reported last month that the 22-year-old had suffered an injury that was expected to keep him out of action for a significant period of time. Malakai Black has since revealed on the Universal Wrestling Podcast that Martin was injured in a car accident. 

"He had a really nasty car accident. He's out for, like, six to nine months," Black said on the show. 

This is the second time in 14 months Martin has been sidelined for an extended period. He suffered a torn ACL in February of 2021 and wouldn't return until the March 2, 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite. 

Martin's last match before his injury was on the April 15 show from Garland, Texas. He wrestled in a 10-man tag along with his brother Dante, the Hardys and Frankie Kazarian. They defeated the team of Private Party, The Blade, Angelico, and Max Caster in a match taped for Dark.
