UPDATE ON AEROSTAR AFTER HUGE DIVE

After this weekend’s Verano de Escandalo many fans were left fearing for Mexican Luchador Aerostar.

During his match, he attempted a monster dive from the lighting rig to the floor. Unfortunately, he landed badly, taking most of the impact across his shoulder and head. Directly after the spot, he was stretchered from the arena.

Even after watching the replay many feared the worst. Thankfully AAA has been on hand keeping everyone updated as to the condition of the star.

Shortly after the incident occurred AAA commented in the Twitch chat stream that Aerostar would make a full recovery.

Aerostar himself was quickly back on social media, showing off some nasty bruising on his side and under his arm.

And more worryingly, promising to try the stunt again!
