AEW founder and CEO Tony Khan has confirmed that reigning Women's World Champion Jamie Hayter is currently injured, but was non-committal on whether or not she'd be able to compete at Double Or Nothing 2023.
AEW is in Las Vegas, Nevada for its latest pay-per-view this Sunday, 27 May. Hayter is scheduled to defend the Women's World Championship against Toni Storm at the event, though she has been off television lately - and was pulled from a planned trios match on the 17 May Dynamite as a result.
During yesterday's pre-Double Or Nothing media call, Khan commented that AEW has addressed Hayter's injury status by putting over that she was injured by Storm in a recent tag bout. As of last week, Jamie wasn't cleared to compete, but she wants to do so at Double Or Nothing.
Khan added that the promotion hasn't shied away from Hayter's situation, stopping short of confirming if she'd be on the pay-per-view.
Thus far, there has been no indication that Hayter vs. Storm is off. If it happens, it'll be Jamie's fourth defence of the belt she took from Toni at Full Gear 2022 last November.
