Juice Robinson is set to be out of action for a while after suffering an injury, reports Fightful Select.
The outlet states that this is why the Bullet Club gold member was absent from AEW's Full Gear 2023 pay-per-view this Saturday (18 November), while stablemates The Gunns and 'Switchblade' Jay White competed on the show.
Robinson is understood to be suffering from a back issue. While there's no word on when, exactly, he sustained the injury, it is bad enough to necessitate surgery.
Juice is likely to be out of action for the rest of 2023. While the situation "wasn't expected to be an extremely drawn out absence, barring setbacks," there was no specific timetable for his return at the time of writing.
Dynamite's 1 November episode hosted Robinson's last match, with Juice and the rest of Bullet Club Gold felling MJF, The Acclaimed, and Billy Gunn as part of MJF's World Championship feud with White.
The 34-year-old has been with AEW as a full-time signing since December 2022, officially making the jump from NJPW. He and White formed Bullet Club's 'Gold' imprint as an offshoot of the popular New Japan stable the following April.
