AEW president and CEO Tony Khan has issued another statement over the health of Matt Hardy.

The WWE legend was rushed to hospital following a botched move in a recent match against Sammy Guevara.

Hardy cleared a collapsible table and ended up lying briefly motionless on the concrete floor.

Despite this, he continued the match, while it was thought he could be suffering with concussion.

But Khan, who is also vice chairman at Fulham, released a statement on Sunday night to say that Hardy was on his way home.

He wrote on Twitter: "An update on Matt Hardy: it’s great news!

"Matt’s ok, we sent him to the hospital as a precaution & he’s passed the MRI + CT scans, he doesn’t have a concussion, and he’s being driven home now.

"Matt will be at Dynamite on Wednesday night to thank you amazing fans for your support!"

Khan had previously spoken out about the incident.

He said earlier on Sunday: "The health and safety of the wrestlers is always the most important thing at AEW. Matt is okay and he's going to be okay.

"What had happened was Matt had taken a fall in the match and I stopped the match, paused the match, and sent the doctor to check on him.

"I was concerned that Matt could be hurt - I rang the bell to pause the match.

"When the doctor checked him, he passed him and cleared him on the concussion protocol.

"He checked with Matt and then Matt came back after and passed the concussion protocol and he's doing okay.

"I spoke with him after the match and talked to him again just now.

"He went, as a precaution, to the hospital to get some tests and check out that he's okay, but looks like he is okay and that's why the doctor cleared him to continue.

"It was not something that any of us enjoyed. It was a scary moment, but the most important thing is that Matt is okay.
