It was previously reported that one half of the Lucha Bros, Rey Fenix, suffered a muscle contusion on his neck during a match last week after an attempted springboard cutter. After being discharged from hospital, he was advised to take several weeks off.
However, the new AEW alumni doesn’t seem too keen on the whole “rest” thing, as he competed during last night’s Impact Wrestling tapings in Las Vegas. From live reports of the show, it seems as though he was physically involved too, rather than just being present.
PWInsider are reporting that when the injury occurred, Fenix reportedly spent time backstage in a neck brace before being taken to hospital, in what was described as a “frightening scene”. Luckily he could still move all his extremities, so the fear of a career-ending injury was lessened somewhat.
The muscle contusion luckily doesn’t seem too severe, however let’s hope Fenix isn’t pushing himself too far and re-aggravates the injury by competing when he should be resting.
The Lucha Bros (Pentagon and Fenix) are set to have a couple of high profile matches in the near future, taking on the team of Rob Van Dam and Sabu in the main event of Impact’s United We Stand show on April 4 in New Jersey, before facing off against The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) at AEW’s Double or Nothing on May 25 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in as Vegas.
