Joey Janela

Independent wrestling standout “Boy Boy” Joey Janela got some bad news on Tuesday.

Janela, who is coming off a high profile match at the sold out ALL IN event in Chicago a few weeks ago against Hangman Page, revealed he will be out of action for at least a year.

Janela suffered a serious knee injury during an appearance for GCW Wrestling.

Janela announced in a statement on Twitter today that he will need to undergo surgery next week to repair his knee. As a result of the injury and pending surgery, WWN announced they have stripped him of the WWN Championship.

Despite missing time in the coming months, Janela will be promoting his own event titled “Joey Janela’s LA Confidential” from Hollywood with GCW on November 16.
