On MLW Fusion this week, Teddy Hart was burned by a fireball from Contra Unit’s Josef Samael. The attack occurred during Hart’s Middleweight championship match against Myron Reed. After the fireball attack, Reed was able to pin Hart and win the title.
MLW has issued a storyline update on the injuries Hart sustained.
“League physician Dr. Sweglar, who was by Hart’s side most of the weekend, has confirmed Hart suffered severe third-degree burns to the face and forehead, with the outer layer epidermis and the inner layer of skin heavily damaged,” an MLW update on Hart reads. “Given the severity of the burns, Teddy Hart is out indefinitely. There is no time table for a return at this juncture.”
Hart had just successfully defended the title against Austin Aries at Super Fight.
