Dalton Castle reveals he took a while to discover his back injury
In a recent episode of AEW Unrestricted, former Ring of Honor World Champion Dalton Castle spoke about winning the title despite unknowingly suffering from a broken back. Castle attributed his success to determination and resilience, pushing through the pain and continuing to compete.
He admitted that although he doesn’t regret his decision, he recognizes the potential danger in not addressing such an injury at the time.
“I had broken my back a year prior and was unaware of what the injury was,” he said. “I just kept ignoring it and dealing with it. I remember for months, I would show up to shows and I would just lay on an ice pack until my music was playing and just go out there and pretend to wrestle somehow. And I knew down the road what the plan was for me, so I couldn’t just take time off or tell anybody. I just had to deal with it, which looking back is a really stupid mentality, but also it’s why my career is where it is today, so I don’t know how it would have been if I went the other route. I don’t really regret it. I regret having such weak bones. That’s all.”
