Julia Hart and Darby Allin have updated fans on their respective statuses after taking nasty bumps at AEW's Grand Slam special last week.

Both were involved in the opening bout taped for Friday's Rampage show, as Allin and Sting faced House Of Black's Brody King and Buddy Matthews, whom Hart was seconding. Julia was involved in the finish, falling from the ring apron and through a table at ringside. Much of her body ended up missing the table, however, with her head appearing to land on the concrete.

Fortunately, Hart is okay. She confirmed as much on Saturday, responding to King:-


Darby, meanwhile, was busted open during the chaotic match, necessitating staples in his scalp:-


There is currently no word on whether or not Allin will be forced to miss any time as a result of his war wounds. He and Sting were victorious over House Of Black, profiting from interference by the Great Muta. It has since been confirmed that Sting will participate in Muta's final wrestling match in Japan on 22 January 2023.


Hart and King may soon be the only active House Of Black members in AEW, with current reporting pointing towards Matthews taking at least some time away from the company.
