Lance Archer Reveals Why He’s Only Been Wrestling Sporadically

Since the start of the year, Lance Archer has only wrestled ten times, with many of the matches being incredibly short. This led many to suggest AEW was struggling to develop any storyline ideas for him. However, he has now revealed following his loss to Will Ospreay at NJPW Dominion on Sunday, during a backstage promo he has been dealing with a torn triceps but opted to keep it to himself.

There is a reason I haven’t been wrestling a lot, and it has nothing to do with bad booking, you dumbsh*ts. What everybody doesn’t even realize is that I’ve been battling a torn triceps, and I’ve kept it quiet, I didn’t tell anybody because I don’t need your sympathy, I don’t need your get well wishes, I don’t need anything. I just needed time, and now I’m back.
