AEW enthusiasts were recently jolted by the sight of the dynamic El Hijo De Vikingo, the reigning ROH AAA Mega Champion, being wheeled away in a chair after an unsettling injury during a match. The AEW universe has been buzzing with concern regarding when Vikingo, known for his dazzling aerial maneuvers, will return to the ring.

The incident occurred during a high-intensity ROH bout featuring Vikingo, Gravity, and Metalik taking on Angelico, Serpentico, and Tony Nese. The crowd watched in anticipation as Vikingo leaped, only to land awkwardly on his hip, resulting in the startling post-match scene of him in a wheelchair.

Meltzer Clears Air

All eyes then turned to Dave Meltzer, the renowned wrestling correspondent, for some clarity. On his popular program, the Wrestling Observer, Meltzer provided an optimistic update on Vikingo’s condition.

"Thankfully, Vikingo's hip injury isn't a fracture. He's been undergoing intensive therapy and remains hopeful of wrestling in his upcoming match against Komander in Mexico City for the AAA Mega Championship. While his participation isn't confirmed yet, early fears of a prolonged absence have been largely allayed," Meltzer revealed.

In related AEW news, Meltzer dropped hints about a potential momentum shift for AEW star Christian Cage. Cage has been leaving a trail of memorable matches in recent times, and Meltzer feels that a significant push might be on the horizon for the veteran wrestler.

Specifically, Meltzer opined on the possibility of Cage securing a win over Luchasaurus during the next AEW Collision event, aiming for the coveted TNT Championship. Meltzer shared, "The buzz backstage is hugely positive regarding Christian.

The prospect of him pinning Luchasaurus in the forthcoming TNT Championship three-way clash, which also features Darby Allin, wouldn't be a shocker to many." With Dave Meltzer's track record of often hitting the mark with his wrestling scoops, fans are eagerly awaiting to see these predictions unfold.

Whether it's the return of Vikingo or Christian Cage's potential ascent, the world of AEW promises exciting times ahead.
