Joey Janela is currently on the shelf due to an injury, and as a result, the former AEW wrestler will not be at shows this weekend.

Janela missed last weekend’s shows due to a burn to his arm.

Janela took to Twitter to confirm his status. He wrote,

“The Bad news is my arm is f**ked still and I had to pull off my bookings this weekend which sucks because that means [no money].

But the good news is I’m dropping new Florida Man Merchandise for one weekend only and it’s one of the greatest shirts I’ve ever commissioned in my life!

Must buy for any true patriot!”
