The Impact of Hayter’s Absence
Hayter’s absence has undoubtedly had an impact on AEW’s programming and plans. Her injury layoff seemingly caused plans to be changed in late May.
This situation is not unique to Hayter, as AEW has had to deal with similar issues recently. For instance, Bryan Danielson’s broken arm injury at Forbidden Door 2023 has posed a similar challenge to Tony Khan, the president of AEW.
The Future Without Hayter?
In light of Hayter’s absence, Tony Khan and All Elite has had to adjust its plans. Among other likely changes, Danielson’s absence has left an open space on the Blackpool Combat Club’s team for this year’s Blood & Guts match on July 19 against The Elite.
While signs have pointed towards Kota Ibushi taking up the last space on Team Elite, an official announcement on the vacant spots is expected to be made on this week’s AEW Dynamite.
