Before going to the hospital after AEW All Out, Matt Hardy passed the concussion protocol. According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, Matt Hardy was rushed to a local hospital after seeming to suffer a head injury during a spot against Sammy Guevara in their singles match on Saturday at AEW All Out in Jacksonville, Florida. While there is no official word yet on what happened, it does not look good as Hardy's car drove itself into the emergency entrance of the hospital.
According to Johnson, police are investigating whether or not Guevara may have caused the accident by hitting Hardy with his vehicle. If this is found to be the case, then Guevara would likely be issued a traffic ticket and have his license suspended. However, officials haven't confirmed this information as of writing this article.
