AEW's Darius Martin undergoes ACL surgery


Darius Martin of AEW's Top Flight tag team has undergone ACL surgery. Martin posted the news on his Twitter account.

Martin tweeted:

"Had ACL surgery this morning....

First time having surgery and this anesthesia has been hitting my body like a MFer all day. 

Nonetheless, the road to recovery begins. It’ll be long but when I’m back, expect me to be performing at a level you’ve NEVER seen before." -@officialarwolf

Darius has been out of action since before the Revolution PPV on March 7. Darius and brother Dante had been scheduled to take place in the Casino Tag Team Royale on that show, but were a late scratch due to a reported knee injury. Further details on the nature of the presumed ACL tear were not released. 

Darius Martin and Dante Martin made their AEW debut on Dark in October 2020. They made their Dynamite debut on the November 18, 2020 episode, losing to The Young Bucks. AEW announced that they had officially signed the duo on November 23, 2020. Top Flight is a perfect 4-0 in tag team action in AEW in 2021.

Since Darius has been out of action, Dante has remained active in singles competition and in six-man and eight-man tag matches on AEW shows.
