Powerhouse Hobbs Suffers Injury During AEW Dynamite

Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite was packed with content, serving as the pay-per-view event’s fallout.

IWGP World Champion Jon Moxley defended against Powerhouse Hobbs, AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland faced Kyle Fletcher in a title eliminator, Anna Jay vs. Mina Shirakawa, Willow Nightingale celebrated her TBS Championship, and more.

After the show, people discussed the angle in which The Elite laid out AEW President Tony Khan. However, there was an injury during the show.

Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Live reported on Thursday that Hobbs had suffered a legitimate knee injury.

“I want to start by wishing the best to [Powerhouse] Hobbs. If you watched the show last night, that was not a worked knee injury. He went for a high cross or something and smashed into the turnbuckles and injured his knee. He could barely walk, and he hopped his way back into the ring, hopped into like two spots, and got choked out. There was more they were going to do. So, if you note, there was going to be an overrun…The Hobbs match was obviously supposed to go longer than it did. We don’t know the extent of his knee injury yet, except that it is real. Hopefully, it is not bad. All the best to Hobbs as he figures out this knee injury.”

We wish him speedy recovery.
