AEW stars give their all in the ring, and sometimes that can result in injury. Tony Khan allows his performers to take on indie bookings, and that resulted in an injury.

AEW star Fuego del Sol was injured during an Extreme Title Three Way match at an SPW show on February 19th. During that match, he took on Guapo Lupe and Daniel Torch. Sadly, Fuego didn’t have the best outcome in that match.

Fuego del Sol logged onto Instagram today, and he provided an update on his current in-ring situation. It seems that he will be sitting out for a bit, because the doctor came back with an X-Ray reading he did not want at all. It turns out that his foot is broken in 5 different places.

“Injury Update…

He injured himself during an Extreme Title Three Way match at an SPW show on February 19th while wrestling Guapo Lupe and Daniel Torch. We wish him a speedy recovery.

With the original x-rays, last week after they confirmed the dislocation of my right foot, they believed I only had one minor fracture.

After the CT scan upon further examination, today they determined I actually fractured my foot in 5 DIFFERENT PLACES, the doctor told me that the fact I finished the match was unbelievable. Adrenaline is a hell of a drug!

Now let’s talk about the big thing, ligament damage. The orthopedic said the main ligament around my Lisfranc bone is a little displaced but not completely separated. So now I have to go see a foot specialist to determine if it needs surgery or if it can heal on its own. If it can heal on its own the recovery is 6-8 weeks because all my bones are in the right spots and the fractures just need time to heal, BUT if I need surgery it could be 3 months. So expect another update within the next week, I’m hoping for the best.

Not the news we wanted. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little frustrated. Focusing on my recovery and advancing my non-physical ventures like, twitch, YouTube, tiktok, IG and content of the likes to keep me busy and my mind off this. Any love and support sent my way is appreciated immensely!”

We’ll have to see how long it takes for Fuego del Sol to make his way back to the ring. Obviously, he has a long road ahead of him, and he will have trouble walking for a bit. Hopefully, Fuego will be running at full-speed in no time.
