Rey Fenix took to Twitter yesterday to issue a statement on his suspected broken arm. For those of you that don’t know, Rey Fenix and Pentagón Jr. took on Jurassic Express on this week’s AEW Dynamite, for the AEW World tag team Championship. During this highly entertaining match, Fenix took a chokeslam from Luchasaurus, off the apron, and through a table, but the moment he hit the floor, it was obvious that Rey Fenix was in serious trouble.
Clutching his elbow, Fenix signaled that he needed help and it was assumed by most fans watching – in attendance and at home – that Rey had broken his arm, but luckily it seems that that might not be the case.
In his statement, Rey Fenix said;
I want to thank each and everyone 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. 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. Thank you all, I love you.”
Thankfully, it seems that the injury – though serious – isn’t anywhere as bad as it initially seemed. It’s also refreshing to see that Rey Fenix doesn’t blame Luchasaurus in any way, shape, or form. Unlike certain washed-up wrestlers who shall remain nameless – *cough* Disco Inferno *cough* – who felt the need to take to social media after the event and claim that this was always going to happen because of the stupid risks these wrestlers take.
Get well soon, Rey Fenix, tag team wrestling needs the Lucha Bros.
