Rey Fenix Breaks Silence Following Gruesome Dynamite Injury

Rey Fenix

AEW star Rey Fenix has commented publicly for the first time after his horrific injury on Dynamite and confirms that he miraculously didn’t break any bones.

AEW made its debut on TBS with their first show of 2022 and the card was loaded. Three title matches took place as Bryan Danielson once again challenged Hangman Adam Page for the AEW World Title and Jade Cargill and Ruby Soho battled it out to become the inaugural TBS Champion.

In the night’s main event, The Lucha Brothers defended their gold against number one contenders Jurassic Express in a barn-burning encounter.

Towards the end of the match, Luchasaurus had hold of a prone Rey Fenix on the ring apron before chokeslamming Fenix through a table that was on the floor. Fenix could be seen stretching out his left arm as he careered towards the floor through the table. Unfortunately, his arm got caught as he hit the ground and then bent into an angle that arms aren’t supposed to bend into.

The video below shows the spot and the end of the Tag Team Title match – the worst of the injury has been blurred by AEW.

Now Rey Fenix has taken to social media to thank fans for their well wishes and confirmed that he broke no bones in the fall:

“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”

Mike Johnson of PWInsider reported following the match that the injury was more likely a dislocation of Fenix’s elbow, something later confirmed by Bryan Alvarez.
