The Blade’s Statement

In an appearance on K&S WrestleFest, The Blade said:

Return Timeline

When asked if he would return before AEW All In on August 25, 2024, The Blade stated:

“I’m hoping so.. My back’s bad. It’s slowly but surely getting better but I’m hoping to be back in a couple months and I hope to be back by then…”
