During the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned how the belief is Abadon took a blow to the neck.

“The Abadon thing I don’t know but she was hospitalized and it was serious,” said Meltzer. “She will make a full recovery, and I don’t even know what it was for sure.” 

“The impression is she got nailed in the throat, but I’m not even sure if the match is airing on television or not. But, I’m thinking that it’s not.”

AEW has been promoting the match since Wednesday. They have not publicly discussed what happened during the tapings.

The past week has seen AEW deal with some injuries. During the last episode of Dynamite, Dark Order’s Alex Reynolds and Fenix were injured.

Reynolds was knocked out cold after a leg drop across his head. As for Fenix, there is no confirmation what happened, but he was involved in a hard fought battle against his brother.

SmackDown saw a big change for one superstar. After getting destroyed by Lars Sullivan, Shorty G had enough.

In a backstage segment, he decided to back and use the name Chad Gable. That was the name he used for WWE until about a year ago.

In the finals of the King of the Ring tournament, Baron Corbin defeated Gable. Afterwards, Corbin started calling him Shorty G to mock his height.

At the time, Gable was getting a decent push on SmackDown. Although once they switched to the Shorty G name, his push quickly ended.

With Daniel Bryan know having a say about SmackDown’s creative direction, he pushed for the change. Eventually, Vince McMahon listened and we will have to see what the results are.

Gable is best known for his roles in NXT and the main roster in the tag team division. He held titles on all three brand with the likes of Jason Jordan and Bobby Roode.

Based off his social media comments, Gable is digging the change.
