Ex-WWE Star Hospitalized For Skull Bleeding

AEW veteran Don Callis recently suffered a horrific injury at the hands of the Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, and Wheeler Yuta).


Don Callis was involved in a backstage segment ahead of Kenny Omega’s title defense against Jeff Cobbs on Dynamite. He expressed his eagerness to apologize to Hangman Adam Page for his accusations against him. Callis was then attacked by Blackpool Combat Club. When they left the scene, a dazed Callis was on the ground bleeding from the head.

Amidst the chaos, the 59-year-old manager hit his head on a lighting rig following a vicious assault by Moxley. Given the nature of AEW adding blood to most of their matches, this injury was reportedly genuine and unexpected. Later, the severity of the wound was cited to be so bad that doctors allegedly claimed his skull was visible, along with intense bleeding. He did not suffer a concussion and is currently in recovery.

Update on Don Callis

On today’s Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez provided an update on Don Callis after he suffered a deep cut on his head during a backstage segment on AEW Dynamite.

The injury occurred after Callis’ head hit a lighting rig after he was attacked by Jon Moxley. Callis came up with blood on his head and word got out that he was legitimately injured.

Alvarez said, “In taking the bump, Don was unaware that there was a lighting rig right behind him. He went head first into the lighting rig and he got gashed open. It was described to me as looking like he was hit with a hatchet…allegedly his doctor told him it was so deep that you could see his skull, bleeding everywhere. They took him to the hospital and he was there until 3 am…He was there til 3 am because it took them that long to put his head back together.”

Alvarez also said that Callis did not get a concussion and he is resting back at home.
