Lance Archer provides update after AEW Dynamite injury scare


Lance Archer has provided an update after landing on his head on AEW Dynamite.

Archer appeared hurt after landing on his head during a moonsault attempt in a match against Eddie Kingston. On Twitter, he wrote that he under-rotated, and the end result could have been much worse.

“Listen,” he wrote. “We choose to do this and take our health [and] lives in our hands every night. I’ve done that move hundreds of times over my career. Just under rotated. Coulda been MUCH worse. Thank you to ALL at @AEW for taking AMAZING care of me and protecting me. I’ll BE BACK!”

After Archer landed on his head, AEW officials checked on him outside of the ring. He eventually went back in, where Kingston immediately cradled him to end the match. He was able to walk to the back under his own power.

On this morning’s Wrestling Observer Radio, it was noted that it was Doc Sampson who told Archer to go straight to the finish, despite Archer wanting to keep going, and Archer was upset backstage after the match. Archer did not have a concussion and was able to pass all tests backstage.
