Injuries are an unfortunate reality of professional wrestling. A recently signed All Elite Wrestling (AEW) star may have fallen victim to the injury bug at an independent show in Canada. Komander, who impressed fans with his performance in the Face of the Revolution ladder matches on March 1, his match with El Hijo del Vikingo at ROH Supercard of Honor, and his losing effort against Sammy Guevara on the April 5 edition of Dynamite, suffered a knee injury while wrestling Gringo Loco and Arez at the "Lucha Palooza" event for Canadian promotion Demand Lucha.
According to John Pollock of POST Wrestling, Komander was helped backstage after the injury and did not reappear, leading many to speculate on the severity of the injury. What makes the situation even more concerning is that the AEW star wasn't even expected to show up, as the company had announced he would miss the show due to travel issues, only for him to appear at the last minute.
Setback for Komander in AEW
Komander's injury is a setback for the 24-year-old luchador, who was gaining momentum in AEW. It remains to be seen how long he will be out of action, but everyone at Sportskeeda Wrestling wishes him a speedy recovery and looks forward to seeing him back in the ring soon.
Komander's injury occurred when AEW signed several high-profile names in 2023. Tony Khan, the company's owner, and president, has been bolstering his roster with fresh faces since the turn of the new year, including former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Jay White, former NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong, and former WWE personality Nigel McGuinness.
In addition, AEW has also rewarded some fan favorites with full-time deals, such as Mark Briscoe, Stu Grayson, and Skye Blue. Injuries are always a risk in professional wrestling, but AEW has shown that it has the depth and talent to weather any storm.
With Komander and other talented performers on the roster, AEW will continue to provide fans with top-notch entertainment in the coming months and years.
