It’s a big blow to JWA to lose one of our top stars and fan favorites for an extended period of time. Axel Rico has been on a tear since joining the promotion last year, capturing the heavyweight title in April. We know fans were looking forward to seeing more great battles from him as champion.
In this video, fans can hear directly from Axel Rico as he addresses supporters with an update on recovering from his injury as well as his goals and plans for returning to the Janesville Wrestling Alliance.
In Rico’s absence, an interim heavyweight champion was crowned. Scotty Flash defeated former JWA Champion Victor Iniestra in a best of three falls match for the Interim JWA championship.
Get well soon Axel Rico! We can’t wait to have you back in that ring and hear your theme music erupt in the pavilion again. Your recovery is what matters most now. We’ll be cheering you on every step of the way. Stay tuned to JWA’s social media for any updates on Rico’s rehab progress.
