Rey Fenix is one of the best high flyers in the pro wrestling world today. He’s got insane balance and delivers jaw-dropping aerial moves. Unfortunately, his awesome aerial offense has brought him nasty injuries over the years.
Fenix, 31, suffered a nasty arm injury on the latest edition of AEW Dynamite on TBS. Fenix and his brother Penta El Zero M defended their AEW tag titles against The Jurassic Express.
Fenix dislocated his arm during a table spot. The incident happened when Fenix came crashing through a table, courtesy of a chokeslam by Luchasaurus. The awkward landing completely bent his arm, resulting in a nasty dislocation.
The former AEW tag team champion issued a statement Thursday (Jan. 7). Fenix posted the statement on his official Twitter account, thanking fans and peers for their concern and support.
“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 blame, it is wrestling and these are the risks. Today I can tell you that I feel better and that thanks to God, his prayers and good vibes from him THERE ARE NO BROKEN BONES. I 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!”
Fenix is expected to undergo surgery to treat the scary injury. It’s good to see that the injury isn’t life threating after the nasty bump he took during the match. Kudos to those who risk their lives in the ring and best wishes for Fenix.
