AEW Will To Delay Planned Title Match Due To Injury? – The latest talent signing done by AEW was Aussie Open, as Mark Davis and Kyle Fletcher were confirmed to be signed by the promotion during Wednesday’s Dynamite episode.
In the opening match on the show, Orange Cassidy retained the International Title over Fletcher. While Fletcher is wrestling, Davis recently had arthroscopic surgery on his knee to repair a torn meniscus.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted Davis’ injury will not be healed in time for Forbidden Door next month, delaying their planned match with FTR.
FTR defends the AEW Tag Team Titles against Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett at Sunday’s Double or Nothing.
“The way the timeline looks, unless somehow he’s backing the miraculous amount of time from the surgery, the FTR and Aussie Open match won’t make Forbidden Door. Maybe you know that could easily go to Wembley. I mean, In fact, now that I think about it, I think that’s a great idea for Wembley [All In]. Originally, all signs lead to Aussie Open vs. FTR for Forbidden Door. It doesn’t look like Davis will make it for Forbidden Door,” Meltzer stated.
