WWE officials will allow Buck time to get back into the groove of his role, but Hayes is expected to be re-inserted as a producer once he is cleared. It remains unknown at this time what will happen to Buck.
According to previous reports, the WWE was hoping to have all of the producers back working by July. However, that could be in jeopardy due to issues still keeping the company from opening back up completely.
Buck, a 35-year-old from New York, competed for several independent promotions including Ohio Valley Wrestling. He also was a co-owner of the Pro Wrestling Syndicate promotion.
AEW Stars In Trouble
Big-time aerial moves always come with a greater sense of risk-reward in pro wrestling.
“There have been a lot of people who have not been caught properly,” Alvarez said. “Not just in AEW, but it’s been a deal in AEW. There’s been a lot of just bodies going flying and they crash and burn on the ground.
“I do know that there have been people yelled at over it like: ‘Dude! Start catching people here!’”
During a May episode of AEW Dynamite, three wrestlers suffered injuries including Fenix. His injury is believed to have happened while attempting a move from the top ropes.
Fenix jumped off onto a host of wrestlers who were supposed to catch him, but he landed short of the group and hit the ground hard.
Another of those injuries was to Matt Jackson, one-half of the Young Bucks. Jackson suffered his injury while attempting a dive from the top in a brawl that also featured Adam “Hangman” Page and The Inner Circle.
