UPDATED: Fightful Select has more details on Anna Jay’s injury. According to Fightful, the injury happened “well over a month ago” and caused a change to one of the AEW Dark tapings.
While both Anny Jay and AEW were hoping that the shoulder issue wasn’t serious, but she recently aggravated the injury that will keep her out of action for a while.
ORIGINAL: AEW has announced that Anna Jay is set to be sidelined for 6-12 months following a shoulder injury during training. According to the company, the injury will require surgery, which could keep her out of action for up to a year.
Anna Jay was originally slated to compete against Britt Baker in the AEW Women’s Title Eliminator Tournament but has been replaced by Madi Wrenkowski.
