ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham is currently not medically cleared for in-ring action due to an injury. Gresham confirmed in a video sent out by PROGRESS Wrestling on Saturday morning that he will not be working this weekend’s events. He did note that he will return to the promotion next month for Chapter 134, but didn’t specify the nature of his injury.

“Hello everyone. Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it to England this weekend for the Sunday and Monday events due to an injury. I have not been cleared to compete. So I do want to apologize to PROGRESS and the fans for not making it this weekend. I really wanted to, but my health comes first and I have to take a little time off. Once I’m cleared, I’ll definitely be back.”

AEW taped Battle of the Belts 2 on Friday night where he retained the ROH World Championship over Dalton Castle, which aired on Saturday night.

Fightful Select reports Gresham was checked for a concussion following the taping, and wasn’t immediately cleared following the evaluation. The belief is that the injury happened after the gut-wrench sequence near the beginning of the bout.

Gresham had been the Original ROH World Champion until he beat Bandido in an ROH World Title unification bout at Supercard of Honor. Gresham signed with AEW/ROH after being a free agent when ROH went on hiatus for the first quarter of 2022.
