In the unpredictable world of professional wrestling, injuries are an unfortunate reality that even the most skilled performers cannot always avoid. Whether they are known for their calculated approach like The Miz or daring acrobatics like Darby Allin, the risk of injury is ever-present.
During a match that aired on Friday's episode of AEW Rampage, Bandido, an impressive talent who joined the AEW roster last November, faced off against Konosuke Takeshita. However, the thrilling encounter took a distressing turn for Bandido as he suffered a significant injury to his left wrist.
Bandido's Injury: Seeking Second Opinion
In a heartfelt Facebook post, Bandido revealed the initial diagnosis of his injury: a triangular fibrocartilage complex injury. This type of injury often requires immediate surgical intervention.
However, determined to explore all options, he has decided to seek a second opinion on Monday before making a final decision regarding surgery. The road to recovery for Bandido, in the event of a surgical procedure, could be a lengthy one, spanning up to three months.
During the initial six weeks of recovery, he would need to wear a brace to facilitate proper healing. Alternatively, if he chooses not to undergo surgery, the anticipated timeframe for his absence from the ring remains at three months.
Bandido's journey in AEW has been marked by memorable encounters with renowned competitors such as Bryan Danielson, solidifying his reputation as a formidable force within the promotion. Prior to his AEW debut, Bandido faced visa-related obstacles, but once those were resolved, he wasted no time in impressing audiences with his exceptional talent, both in AEW and during his appearances for international promotions in Australia, Mexico, and Belgium.
As the wrestling community rallies around Bandido during this challenging time, fans and fellow wrestlers alike eagerly await the results of his upcoming consultation. The ultimate decision regarding surgery and subsequent recovery will undoubtedly shape the trajectory of his career in the months to come.
