On last Friday night’s episode of AEW Rampage that was taped after Dynamite on Wednesday, Rey Fenix looked to have suffered an ankle injury when the Lucha Bros took on Private Party. Fenix hurt his ankle when he took a simple atomic drop, and he was seen limping heavily after the match.
On today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Fenix is doing just fine, and he will not miss any time as Fenix worked a fatal 4-way bout in Tijuana just two days after the taping of this match.
“Rey Fenix, on the Rampage show. The deal with Rey Fenix was he I guess, hurt his ankle taking an atomic drop, which is totally safe, but it just happened. It was a fluke thing. Although, he’s okay. The match was taped Wednesday. He did wrestle Friday, he wasn’t limping Friday, but it was a scare. He was limping pretty badly at the end of the match on Wednesday that aired on Friday, and I thought, ‘Oh God, another injury,’ right? But, he apparently is okay. There are so many people hurt in AEW and they do need to change stuff. I don’t know if it means more matches. I don’t know what it means, but there are too many guys getting hurt.”
