AR Fox Injured

According to the latest WWN Live e-mail, AR Fox has suffered a broken wrist that requires surgery for a full recovery. He will be out for two-to-three months, which will cause him to miss the EVOLVE dates in Florida, and more importantly, Beyond Wrestling Americanrana in less than two weeks and the Battle of Los Angeles tournament in less than two months. It's uncertain where he suffered said injury, but given his high-risk style, I'm not surprised. Still, I hope he gets well soon and recovers fully.

The more important question now becomes who will replace Fox at BOLA. The field is already loaded, but now Pro Wrestling Guerrilla has the opportunity to fill Fox's spot either with a hungry SoCal native or with another bombshell of a guest announcement. My gut feeling says that someone already booked for the weekend - a member of Bad Influence, Joey Ryan, or Candice LeRae in particular - will get the nod, but at this point, nothing is certain. I personally would love to see LeRae get the spot. Either way, I'm sure PWG will select a worthy replacement. Losing Fox is a huge blow to the tournament, but the indies are rife with talent that could make his loss a bit more bearable.

Thanks to friend of the blog @themib for the tip.
