Rey Fenix has given an update on his medical condition, having been involved in a serious incident on the latest edition of AEW Dynamite after taking a chokeslam from the apron through a table from Luchasaurus.
As part of the AEW Dynamite debut on TBS, there was a stacked card despite a number of talent being unavailable due to COVID-19. Despite this, there were two new champions crowned with the first being Jade Cargill becoming the inaugural TBS Champion after defeating Ruby Soho.
In the evening’s main event, The Lucha Bros took on Jurassic Express in a chaotic contest where the AEW Tag Team Championships were on the line.
As the match progressed, Luchasaurus and Rey Fenix moved to the apron where the latter was put through a table on the outside. At that point, his arm was outstretched and was then seen to bend backwards on itself and giving major concern to everyone around.
Although the main part of the injury is blurred, the video below shows how the incident happened.
Astonishingly, Rey Fenix has now posted on social media that he didn’t break his arm.
I want to thank each and every one of you for so much love, for your prayers, good vibes, for your messages. Thank you very much for being concerned about me. I feel very blessed to have all of you. Fans, colleagues (Wrestlers) my friends and my family, Thank you very much.
I love this sport so much that it has changed my life and mine, that when I am in the ring or put on my mask, everything goes away. There are no fears, there are no problems, my heart beats perfectly, everything is fine, I feel alive.
What happened last night is one of the many risks that we wrestlers take before getting into a ring and doing what we love so much. There is no fault, it is wrestling and these are the risks.
Today I can tell you that I feel better and that thank God, your prayers and good vibes THERE ARE NO BROKEN BONES. You still have to visit the doctor a couple more times and do some studies, to have an exact diagnosis.
Thank you very much once again to all and congratulations to the champions, enjoy and defend those titles, because very soon I am back and those championships belong to the LUCHA BROTHERS. I respect!
Thank you all, I love you.
The only title which didn’t change hands as part of the first AEW Dynamite on TBS was the World Championship, where Adam Page was able to hand Bryan Danielson a loss after hitting the Buckshot Lariat.
