There was no update on whether he regained movement in his body, however it appears that this will be a lengthy recovert
Yamamura was a highly touted signing for AEW. The company has had some of its wrestlers dealing with injuries including the Lucha Brose and Cody Rhodes, but nothing as serious as this. Here is hoping for a speedy recovery.
