AEW’s Tony Khan Addresses Injury Updates, Hints at Mark Davis’ Return

One big thing: Tony Khan hopes for Mark Davis’ return

AEW CEO Tony Khan recently provided an update on injured star Mark Davis, expressing hope for his imminent return to action.

• Davis, one half of Aussie Open, has been sidelined with a wrist injury since October 2023.
• Khan stated on “Wrestling Observer Radio” that Davis “hopefully will be back soon.”
• Aussie Open last appeared as a unit in AEW in October, challenging FTR for the World Tag Team Championship.

Why it matters

Davis’ return could significantly boost AEW’s tag team division, reuniting a formidable team in Aussie Open. His absence has left partner Kyle Fletcher to work solo in the Don Callis Family faction.

AEW’s approach to injury updates

Khan addressed AEW’s often scarce injury updates, citing privacy concerns:

• “Sometimes it’s because people have private medical situations,” Khan explained.
• He values protecting talent privacy but acknowledges the need for clarity.
• Khan has considered implementing an “injury report show” to better inform fans.

Balancing act

“I think the most important thing is that people are comfortable. I don’t want to talk too much about someone’s injuries if they don’t want me to,” Khan said.

The bigger picture

Injuries continue to be a hot topic in AEW:

• Lio Rush had an injury scare at the recent Forbidden Door pay-per-view.
• Britt Baker made her return after nearly a year-long absence due to injury.

As AEW navigates these challenges, fans eagerly await updates on their favorite stars, including Mark Davis.
