Lance Archer was nearly paralyzed after landing on his head several months back on AEW TV. Also, Tony Khan on how he got Jay White.
Lance Archer Nearly Paralyzed
Back in October, there was a scary moment for Lance Archer. During an episode of AEW Dynamite, he landed right on his head during a top rope moonsault attempt.
The spot was scary to watch for the live audience. Somehow, Archer completed the match.
Basically, the action was stopped while the medical staff checked on Archer. Then, after several uneasy minutes, the match resumed with Archer taking a quick loss to Eddie Kingston.
During Busted Open, Archer went into details on what occurred. In particular, he noted how a centimeter difference could have been a lifetime of being paralyzed.
“I feel great,” said Archer. “I mean, I’m beyond blessed for the fact that I actually didn’t break my neck.”
“You know, a centimeter a different way, and it could have been a completely different result. I basically gave myself an extreme version of whiplash because I bounced off my forehead.”
“But, if it had been any part of the crown of my head, I probably would have been paralyzed or dead. So beyond blessed that that didn’t happen.”
After being off TV to heal, Archer returned about a month ago. He went right after AEW World Champion “Hangman” Adam Page.
For the past few weeks, they have been trading insults and strikes. Then, it all came to a head on Wednesday’s Dynamite.
The two met in a Texas Death Match, with Page coming out the victor. Although, neither have nothing to be ashamed of.
As expected, the match was rather violent and saw the ring get destroyed. There were plenty of weapons used as well.
Both men bled a good amount and the fans seemed to respect the the performance. Now, “Hangman” will enter into a title program with Adam Cole.
Jay White – AEW News
“Switchblade” Jay White appeared during AEW this week, but it was not planned. In fact, Tony Khan only put the deal together a week ago after a slip.
Last week, Khan promised the Forbidden Door would be opened. Then, he realized that he misspoke about using that term.
I didn’t secure @JayWhiteNZ until Sunday. Realized after the fact that Friday night I butchered my own definition of Forbidden Door in hyping tonight. I heard the fans’ feedback, & wanted to ensure that tonight was a special #AEWDynamite for all. Thank you everyone who watched!
