While this is obviously bad news for AEW, the new promotion was able to find a suitable replacement, with Kenny Omega now going one-on-one with PAC at next weekend’s show.
The bad news just keeps on coming in for AEW, as Rey Fenix reportedly suffered a leg injury at an independent show last night.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Fenix suffered a nasty leg injury while tagging with Pentagon Jr. The pair took on Juventud Guerrera and Teddy Hart at a Big Time Wrestling event:
“Fenix superkicked Hart and then picked up Guerrera, and collapsed and grabbed his leg. He rolled out of the ring and waved for help from the back. Fenix was brought to the back. In the ring, in what was clearly an audible, Guerrera immediately pinned Pentagon, who rushed to the back to check on his brother.”
Rumours on Twitter quickly circulated, with many saying that Fenix had actually broken his leg. Meltzer says that while the extent to Fenix’s injury is not yet known, he likely hasn’t broken his leg:
“Early reports that he was seriously injured and may have broken his leg were premature. He was walking on the leg, but it was weak.”
At All Out, Fenix will be tagging with his brother Pentagon Jr. to take on The Young Bucks in a ladder match for AAA World Tag Team Championships. Before being evaluated by medics, Fenix remained confident that the match will take place:
“[Fenix] was hopeful it was only a sprain and was saying that he thought he would be able to do his ladder match at All Out in Chicago.”
