AEW Star “Banged Up” Taking Time Off

Even though AEW’s wrestlers don’t have the same grueling and time-intensive schedules as their WWE counterparts, the risk of injury is still high. This is also true because AEW wrestlers tend to compete with fewer restrictions, which leads to higher-risk matches and spots.

It is with that in mind that one of the company’s top stars that has been around since the company first formed in 2019 is taking time off to deal to heal up.

Per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Fenix won’t be wrestling for some time because he is, as Meltzer noted, “banged up.” However, this is all the information that was given; there weren’t any details on what specific injury/injuries the wrestler is dealing with, nor was any timeframe given for his return.

Fenix’s latest match was at AEW Battle of the Belts VI on April 7th. On that show, he and Penta El Zero Miedo retained their ROH World Tag Team Championships against the team of Powerhouse Hobbs and QT Marshall.

No timeframe given for Fenix’s return to AEW

Fenix has been with AEW since the very beginning. He and Penta have had several high-profile tag matches over the years, including a Steel Cage match at All Out 2021, a ladder match at All Out 2019, and several high-intensity four-and-six-man tags on Dynamite throughout 2020, 2021, and 2022, mostly against the Young Bucks. Additionally, he also wrestled Kenny Omega one-on-one in January 2021.

The two luchadors won the vacant ROH tag titles at Supercard of Honor 2023 which took place on March 31st. That match has become somewhat infamous for leading to Dante Martin’s gruesome injury.
