Ring of Honor talent PJ Black shared on his social media pages that he recently fell down some stairs and is currently recuperating in a hospital. Black competed in the ROH Pure Title tournament and lost in the second round to Josh Woods. Since that ROH taping, he has been working on the NJPW Strong show and most recently wrestled Tama Tanga in singles competition.
Black posted the following about his injury and listed off some of the other injuries he’s tallied up throughout his career:
I fell down some stairs (full moon). Injuries suck. But they are necessary apparently. Up until 5 years ago I’ve never broken a bone or had surgery. Never even been stung by a bee! Fast forward to today.. Broken both legs multiple times, 33 screws and a few plates (Titanium and Steel. 2 different continents.) in my legs and ring finger. A few NDE’s (Near Death Experience) later here I am rethinking life/death. Not because I got hurt; the avatar will heal; because death is an illusion. I’ve been able to experience many of my past lives even in Atlantis! This is surreal to me since I was raised Christian and we were taught that reincarnation isn’t real. I’ve since read copious amounts of books on this subject (if any1 has any good ones or need recs just ask). And if all those “lives” were hallucinations; then so is this one! The last 5 years have been the worst years of my life but at the same time the best thing to ever happen to me. #growth — Aslo FUCK 2020
