On the AEW Dynamite: Fight For The Fallen special episode, Dante Martin presented another electrifying performance in his match against Sammy Guevara. Sadly, the Top Flight player sustained a knee pain during the fight. Martin was seen strolling on crutches backstage and at the hotel after the show. There is no statement on how serious Martin’s injury is or whether he will miss any ring time.
Martin, who was preceded to the ring by his real-life girlfriend Skye Blue, was defeated by Guevara in a 9 min fight. There were plenty of high points as the two acrobatic wrestlers went all out. Some fans believe Martin sustained the injury when he grabbed a springboard cutter from Guevara. Excalibur noted on commentary that Martin’s knee appeared to buckle after the spot.
Darius Martin, Dante Martin’s brother, is also out of commission after being injured in a car accident earlier this year. Malaki Black revealed in April that Darius will be out for at least 6-8 months. In April, Black told The Universal Wrestling Podcast, I wish Darius a speedy recovery. He was in a bad car accident and will be out for another 6 to 8 months.
Darius returned to the field earlier this year after recovering from a torn ACL undergone in February 2021. Sadly, Darius was involved in a car accident just over a month after his return on the March 2, 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite. Keep an eye out for notifications on Dante Martin’s recent injury.
Brian James, a WWE Hall of Famer, reacted to CM Punk’s remarks about Sasha Banks, Naomi, & Brock Lesnar. As previously stated, in a recent interview with the Absolute Geek podcast, CM Punk compared WWE’s handling of Banks and Naomi’s walkouts to Brock Lesnar’s. I’ll put it to you this way: folks are going to be furious, but f—k it, Punk said.
Mercedes Sasha Banks & Trinity Naomi exit, saying on SmackDown, ‘Gawd darn, we’re so displeased in them, people really let our down the fans.’ Brock Lesnar splits, returns, I believe he worked SmackDown, and where was Michael Cole telling Man, Brock Lesnar kind of let these fans down? They went on National television and called me a quitter after I stepped out. What has altered? Punk inquired.
Road Dogg stated on Busted Open Radio that comparing Sasha and Naomi’s scenario to Brock Lesnar’s is unfair. Punk, according to the former lead writer of the SmackDown brand, is just trying to make the WWE look like the devil. Only in WWE can you say, ‘No, I wouldn’t like that,’ and walk out the door, according to James. Brock is also included in this. He returned, as I expected. I’m not sure what the conversation was about, but you know.
