Matt Hardy needed medical attention after smashing his head on a concrete floor on Saturday night.

The former WWE regular and current AEW challenger was taken to hospital after a stunt in his clash with Sammy Guevara appeared to go wrong.

The 45-year-old continued on with the match despite the risk of concussion, leaving his wife Reby fuming.

AEW President and CEO Tony Khan has since issued a statement on the incident in which Hardy cleared a collapsible table and ended up lying briefly motionless on the concrete floor.

Khan, who is also Vice Chairman at Premier League side Fulham, said: "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.

"We're all really glad about that."

Best known for being one half of The Hardy Boyz tag team with his brother Jeff, Matt made his AEW debut during AEW Dynamite in March.

Hardy’s wife Reby had written on Twitter: "Let me be absolutely f***ing clear.

"There is NOTHING entertaining about a concussion. Shame on everyone in that goddamn building."
