“Thank you to everybody who’s been following up and giving all your support and concern, it means the world to me. You guys really are the best. I’m doing fantastic. I feel great. It was a rough couple weeks originally but now I feel good. I’ve been in great care with AEW doctors and trainers, following up with the appropriate specialists, and everything’s looking good. I’m hoping to get cleared any day now to get back into the ring, which takes us to All Out. Will I be booked? You’re gonna have to wait and see.”
