AEW: Rey Fenix and Alex Reynolds Injuries, Joey Janela

Rey Fenix

Rey Fenix appeared to suffer an injury to his neck during his match against Penta El Zero M on Dynamite last night, but the extent of the injury isn’t known.

Fenix was said to be “sore” after the match, according to Dave Meltzer, but not much else is known.

The injury appeared to happen when Fenix tried a middle rope headscissors on Penta and landed awkwardly on his neck/shoulders. He looked shaken up for a few seconds and referee Aubrey Edwards went to check on him. After that, Penta tried to hit Fenix with a rolling DDT, but Fenix appeared limp and the move was botched, and Fenix lay in the ring for another few seconds. But after that, it seemed like he was able to recover and continued wrestling for several minutes, hitting a lot of big moves as if he was OK.

He’s scheduled to face Kenny Omega in round 2 of the World Title Eliminator Tournament next week on Dynamite.

Alex Reynolds

Alex Reynolds appeared to have his “bell rung” during the tag team main event on Dynamite when he was hit with a top rope splash and leg drop combo by Private Party.

Reynolds appeared out of it for about a minute and lay lifeless in the ring. Later, he re-entered the match and was hit with a bulldog, then was finally checked on by the ringside doctor.

According to PWInsider, Reynolds was “up and OK” after the match and “didn’t seem to have any issues backstage.” Bryan Alvarez also said on Wrestling Observer Radio that he was told that Reynolds was “feeling great.”

Joey Janela

Joey Janela was pulled from his match against Kenny Omega last night because he came into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

Janela wrestled AJ Gray at a Game Changer Wrestling show on Saturday. Yesterday at 3:52 PM ET, Gray announced that his COVID-19 test came back positive.

Janela hasn’t yet said publicly if he has also tested positive.

Janela was replaced by Sonny Kiss on Dynamite, who was squashed by Kenny Omega in a few seconds.
