“[I was] scared at first, waiting to see if [Matt was] okay, if they were okay. Obviously a stunt gone wrong,” said Jericho. “I just feel whenever you’re falling from that high, we should have some more tables out there and some pads on the floor but guys are brave, and thankfully, Matt was not hurt, no matter what you hear. He did not have a concussion.”

Chris Jericho says that Hardy will wrestle again this week

Jericho says that Hardy has already been cleared to get back into the ring, and will wrestle shortly. 

“He was hurt. He banged his head. But, you know, the match ended very quickly after that and, you know, no one really knows what was going on in that,” explains Jericho. “Thankfully, Matt wasn’t hurt and he was on the show this week and I’m sure he’ll be on the show next week, and for many weeks to come. So I’m glad we did not have anything bad happen there.”

Matt Hardy suffered a bad fall at All Out. Sammy Guevara attempted to take him down from a height and the two were supposed to land on a table. However, Hardy missed the table and landed straight on the back of his head.

He was finished after that and was barely able to stand. The official had to call off the match immediately, and the medical staff came to check on the Superstar.

Matt Hardy’s wife was disgusted at AEW

Despite his terrible state, the match was continued. It was cut short of its time but played through anyway. This poor decision on the part of AEW and Hardy enraged Hardy’s wife Reby.

In a series of Tweets, she shared the information that Hardy was in fact concussed. She was extremely ashamed at AEW for continuing the match despite Hardy’s condition.
