After suffering what some might have thought to be a serious leg injury on Friday, one-half of the Lucha Dragons, Fenix, became questionable for AEW's All Out PPV.
The story was first reported early on Saturday morning that one-half of the Lucha Dragons, Fenix had gone down with a leg injury at last night's Big Time Wrestling in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. He was partnered with Pentagon Jr. and was in a match versus Juventud Guerrera and Teddy Hart. During the match, Fenix did a superkick to Hart, tried to pick up Guerrera, but instead, collapsed on the mat. He then grabbed his leg in obvious pain. Fenix was taken to the back, the match was quickly finished up and there were questions as to how serious the injury was.
Fenix was reported to be "weakly" walking around and the initial hope was that he had only suffered a sprain. After first wondering how bad it was, the second thought for many was how this might affect his upcoming match against The Young Bucks at AEW's All Out on August 31?
The good news is Fenix will be back in action tonight in Enfield, Connecticut, so he should be good to go against The Young Bucks. Big Time Wrestling made a statement as part of their promotion for the match tonight saying, "We are happy to announce Rey Fenix will be WRESTLING as schedule tonight in Enfield, CT."
What This Means
AEW dodged a bullet here. Already having lost Jon Moxley to an elbow infection and being replaced by Pac for All Out, if the Lucha Dragons can't wrestle in one of the biggest tag matches of the night it would put a real damper on the pay-per-view which AEW needs to be a huge success.
We'll keep an eye on this situation and see how things go tonight with Fenix in his match.
