REPORT: Rebel suffered dislocated kneecap on AEW Dynamite

Originally published at

AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker teamed with Rebel on the 6/30 episode of Dynamite to take on Nyla Rose and Vickie Guerrero. Rebel suffered an injury during the match.

As Rebel was running in to break up a pin, she came down awkwardly and was not able to move. Nyla Rose attempted to pick her up but Rebel used the ropes to pull herself out of the ring. Footage was shared on social media of Rebel being helped to the back by AEW’s ringside medical staff. Both Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp and F4WOnline reported that Rebel dislocated her kneecap.

Rebel/Reba gets a legit injury (looks like right knee),
Britt Baker submits Vickie Guerrero to end the match and then Vickie no-sells it

Prayers for Rebel…that looks bad.

Baker and Rebel won the match after Baker tapped out Vickie Guerrero. Post-match, Baker was put through a table by Nyla Rose.

Since being paired with Britt, Rebel has wrestled sporadically. She has wrestled four matches for AEW since the summer of 2020 and was the company’s makeup artist as well. Prior to the 6/30 Dynamite, Rebel fell in defeat to Hikaru Shida in May, who Baker defeated at Double Or Nothing to become champion.

Terrible freak accident.

They could have gotten to that big spot at the end - Nyla Rose power bombing Dr. Britt Baker through the table - without going on with that shitty match. Rebel could have saved her knee, and none of us would have to see Vicki wrestle. Was Vicki no-selling the Lockjaw part of her favor from Tony Khan as well.
