SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Jonathan Gresham will be out of action due to an injury suffered at AEW Battle of the Belts 2 over the weekend. On the show, Gresham wrestled Dalton Castle for the Ring of Honor World Championship. He retained his title, but Fightful Select is reporting that he suffered a concussion when receiving a gut wrench suplex.
The injury forced Gresham to pull out of two Progress Wrestling events. Gresham shot a video apologizing to Progress fans because of his absence.
“Hello, everyone,” Gresham said in a video on the Progress Wrestling Twitter feed. “Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it to London this weekend for the Sunday and Monday events due to an injury. I have not been cleared to compete. So, I do want to apologize to Progress and the fans for not being able to make it this weekend. I really wanted to, but my health comes first and I have to just take a little time off.”
Gresham went on to thank fans for being understanding and said that he would be back to Progress soon. Gresham recently signed with AEW and will reportedly work for Tony Khan in All Elite Wrestling and Ring of Honor. Gresham won the ROH World Championship at Final Battle last year. He recently won the unified world title at ROH Supercard of Honor against Bandido.
Gresham is currently scheduled to wrestle Eddie Edwards at the Impact Wrestling Rebellion PPV event over the weekend. Rebellion will stream live on Fite TV and will feature Josh Alexander vs. Moose for the Impact World Championship in the main event.
