Various: Anna Jay Injury Status Update, ROH Announces Field for Survival of the Fittest 2021, Indies

Anna Jay Shoulder Injury Status Update

As noted before, Ann Jay has been out of action for AEW since this past February due to a shoulder injury.

A recent episode of the Excuse Me: The Vickie Guerrero Show podcast had Jay as the guest and one of the topics discussed included Jay providing a rehab update on her shoulder.

“Well it happened in training. I ended up tearing my labrum again. It’s the second time I’ve done this. Hopefully this time is the charm. Now I’m just rehabbing. Hopefully I’ll be back sooner than I want to or sooner than expected which is what I want and that’s pretty much what I’m doing right now. My routine that I just told you, that’s pretty boring plus rehab, that’s it.”
