AEW Star Cleared to Return After Suffering Major Injury in 2022

AEW star Santana is set to return after being cleared from an injury suffered back in 2022.

All Elite Wrestling star Santana has been cleared to return to AEW after suffering a major injury way back in 2022 according to a new report. Santana had suffered an injury during the main event of AEW Dynamite in its Blood & Guts match in 2022, and has been out of action ever since. But fans had been wondering if Santana was gearing up for a comeback following increased activity on social media pages, and it seems like things are cleared for the star to make his return according to an update from a new report. 

Fightful Select reports that Santana is ready for an in ring return, but he and on-screen tag team partner Ortiz are "still not on good terms." It's reported that this was the case prior to the injury, but it's "not impossible" for the two to work together again should Santana return. It's not reported as to whether or not this means that Santana or Ortiz could factor into the upcoming AEW All In: London card, nor is there a window as for when he could make a proper return, but it seems like he's good to go.
