AEW President Tony Khan issues statement saying Matt Hardy does not have a concussion

Matt Hardy released from hospital

AEW President Tony Khan issued an update on Matt Hardy stating he does not have a concussion and will be on AEW Dynamite this Wednesday to thank the fans for their support.

This information from Khan conflicts with a report from Hardy’s wife, Reby Hardy, where she stated the diagnosis was “1000% concussion.”

During the Broken Rules Match against Sammy Guevara last night at AEW All Out, Guevara gave Hardy a spear off a scissor lift. Hardy crashed through some tables below, but overshot and smacked the back of his head on the concrete. Hardy appeared to be unconscious for a few moments, tried to get up, and could not regain his balance.

Referee Aubrey Edwards threw up the “X” sign to indicate a legitimate injury. Dr. Michael Sampson checked on Hardy and the match was initially stopped. It would soon restart. A dazed Hardy and Guevara would brawl into Daily’s Place and quickly go to the finish, which was Guevara falling off a scaffold through a crash pad.
