Reason why Jake Hager hasn’t wrestled in AEW yet

Since making his promotional debut on the premiere episode of AEW Dynamite, former WWE star Jake Hager has yet to wrestle on the show. 

There’s a reason for that as Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that he has an agreement that he wouldn’t wrestle until after his next pro-MMA fight. 

“His agreement was that he’s doing TV every week and taking Tuesday and Wednesdays as his days off training while training the other five days, but wouldn’t wrestle matches until after the fight to avoid the injury risk.”

Hager returns to the Bellator cage when he takes on Anthony Garrett (4-2) at Bellator 231 on October 25 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT.
