Former WWE star explains his AEW absence

Former WWE and current AEW star Lance Archer has opened up about his absence from All Elite Wrestling.

Archer explained in a backstage interview that he's been dealing with a torn tricep after his loss to Will Ospreay in the finals of the NJPW Dominion event.

The Murderhawk Monster revealed that he is frustrated by the lack of respect he's been getting lately.

"2023 hasn't been the best year for me. The amount of disrespect that I feel all over the world right now, it's unprecedented and it pi**es me off. Nearly 23 years in this business, one of the best, if not the best big man to step in the f***ing ring," Archer said.

Archer further gave details about his torn tricep injury:

"Hey, AEW this message is for you, New Japan Pro Wrestling this message is for you, every f***ing mark around the world this message is for you — there's a reason I haven't been wrestling a lot and it has nothing to do with bad booking, you dumb sh*ts, what everyone doesn't realize is that I've been battling a torn tricep."
