And after examination, the pair was allowed to carry on only for Hardy to be taken to hospital later for a MRI scan to check any possible injuries.

Hardy's wife, who was clearly infuriated by the referee's decision to allow the match continue took to social media to take a swipe on AEW for their handling of the situation.

On their part, AEW absolved themselves of any blame, insisting the wellbeing of wrestlers "is the most important thing."

"The health and safety of the wrestlers is always the most important thing at AEW. Matt is okay and he's going to be okay," Tony Khan, AEW president was quoted saying.

"What had happened was Matt had taken a fall in the match and I stopped the match, paused the match, and sent the doctor to check on him," he added.
