AEW’s Chuck Taylor Suffers Legitimate Career-Ending Injur

One Big Thing

The recent announcement of a career-ending injury to AEW star Chuck Taylor is reportedly believed to be legitimate and not just part of a storyline.

What Happened

  • AEW announced that Trent Beretta left Chuck Taylor with a career-threatening injury during their Parking Lot Fight on the April 27 edition of AEW Rampage.
  • Orange Cassidy addressed the brawl on the following week’s AEW Dynamite, stating that Taylor “will never wrestle again.”
  • It has since been announced that Taylor has a fractured ankle that will require surgery, and due to the nature of the fracture and the presence of necrosis, the injury is likely ‘career-ending’.

Legitimacy of the Injury

Dave Meltzer provided further details on the legitimacy of the situation in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter:

“In storyline they say it’s over but have also given wiggle room. From what we are told, what was said on television was accurate and the belief right now is that Taylor won’t be able to wrestle again.”


  • Taylor and Beretta debuted in AEW at Double or Nothing in 2019, with their break-up as a team taking place in April 2024.
  • Following the match that has seemingly ended Taylor’s career, Beretta stated that his former tag partner would need surgery and that Taylor “hasn’t had his head in the game for a long time now” and that he “took him out of the game.”

Why It Matters

The legitimacy of Chuck Taylor’s injury highlights the real risks professional wrestlers face in the ring. If the injury is indeed career-ending, it will have a significant impact on Taylor’s life and the AEW roster. This event also adds a layer of realism to the storytelling in professional wrestling, blurring the lines between fiction and reality.
