How Did Lance Archer Get Injured?

Lance Archer's match with Eddie Kingston had to be cut short after the wrestler dramatically landed on his own head and neck during an attempted moonsault.

The scary incident happened on the October 23 episode of AEW Dynamite and resulted in ringside doctors checking the Murderhawk out at ringside, before the match finish was changed to Kingston just rolling him up for the win.

The two were doing battle to progress in the World Title Eliminator Tournament, with Kingston progressing to face Daniel Bryan in the next round on the October 30 episode, which saw Bryan progress to the final. Bryan will face either Jon Moxley or Orange Cassidy in the final of the tournament to win the right to face whoever is AEW Champion.

This will either be 'Hangman' Adam Page or current title-holder Kenny Omega, who are set to do battle at AEW Full Gear on November 13.
