Some fans were concerned that an AEW star might have suffered an injury on Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite in Jacksonville, Florida at Daily’s Place on TNT.
The show opened with Matt Hardy and The Young Bucks vs. Private Party and Joey Janela in a six-man tag team match. This led to Butcher and The Blade running out and attacking Matt and Nick Jackson only to have the debut of former WWE stars FTR, formerly known as The Revival.
During the match, there was concern for Marq Quen of Private Party as it appeared that he was injured. It turns out that this injury was a worked angle and he was fine.
Pwinsider.com reports that the angle was done as a way to have Matt Hardy help Quen to the backstage area and leave ringside in order for the attack by Butcher and The Blade on his tag team partners.
AEW will be taping next week’s episode of Dynamite on Thursday so it will be interesting to see how the promotion follows up on this angle.
