Eddie Edwards is coming off a notable win as he teamed with David Finlay and Juice Robinson to beat Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega, Doc Gallows, and Karl Anderson in a six-man tag team match this past Saturday night at Under Siege.
Dave Meltzer noted during today’s Wrestling Observer Radio episode that Edwards is suffering from appendicitis.
“It looks that way. I know he’s in Nashville right now or was this afternoon. I’d heard appendicitis, kind of checked, and basically what I was told is it looks like appendicitis, which is not a good thing at all. I don’t have details as to whether he’s having his appendix out right now or what is the situation, but that probably went down yesterday or today.”
Meltzer speculated that since Moose won the #1 contendership 6-way scramble at Under Siege this past Saturday night and is challenging Omega for the world title at the Against All Odds special in June, it looked like Edwards would be getting a title shot at the Slammiversary pay-per-view event in July. This illness could affect those plans if that was the direction that Impact was headed towards.
