The following was posted on TNAWrestling.com regarding the “condition” of Hernandez. It would appear that TNA is using this injury angle as a way to remove Hernandez from current TNA storylines so that he is available for his upcoming tour of Mexico with AAA.
AN UPDATE ON THE CONDITION OF TNA WRESTLING SUPERSTAR HERNANDEZ
As the world witnessed on Monday night on TNA “iMPACT” on SpikeTV, Hernandez was injured at the hands of “The Blueprint” Matt Morgan when Morgan used his “Carbon Footprint” finishing move on Hernandez against the wrestling ring’s steel post, kicking Hernandez in the head and causing an instant blackout.
The match was quickly stopped by the referee, and medical officials immediately placed Hernandez in a protective neck brace, then loaded him onto a stretcher for quick transport to a local Orlando hospital.
TNAwrestling.com has learned that Hernandez was released from the hospital early Thursday morning after a few nights of precautionary observation. He has suffered a herniated disc and cervical damage to his neck. Unfortunately, TNA Wrestling management has informed us that Hernandez is out of action indefinitely. We wish him well in his recovery, and we will continue to update fans on his condition.
The status of the TNA World Tag Team Championship is still to be determined. Matt Morgan currently claims ownership of both titles.
