Santana injured during Blood & Guts
Santana suffered what looked like a knee injury during the main event of tonight’s Blood & Guts edition of AEW Dynamite on TBS.
The injury occurred when Santana’s left leg buckled as he was delivering a Uranage to Daniel Garcia. His leg was positioned awkwardly as he landed, then fell to the floor.
Santana was then checked out by ringside officials, and spent the rest of the time near the double cage, talking to the referees. He was taken away towards the end of the match, and helped to the back. Santana never returned to the match.
You can see clips of the injury below.
The Blood & Guts main event saw Santana, Claudio Castagnoli, Interim AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, Eddie Kingston, Ortiz and ROH Pure Champion Wheeler Yuta defeat Garcia, Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Angelo Parker, and Matt Menard. Castagnoli made Menard submit to the Sharpshooter, on top of the cage, while Kingston had Jericho submitting right next to him. There was continued tension between Kingston and Castagnoli after the match, but the show ended with the winners celebrating together on top of the cage, minus Santana.
