Report: Rey Fenix Now In Doubt For AEW Double Or Nothing
AEW might have to announce 2 mystery participants...
On this week's episode of Dynamite, Rey Fenix suffered an injury after he tried to hit his Casino Ladder match opponents with a Springboard Senton. Instead of landing on them, however, he undershot the move and crashed to the floor.
Bryan Alvarez initially reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Fenix was a little banged up but he would be able to compete at Double Or Nothing. The former Lucha Underground star's status seems to have changed since then, however, as Cassidy Haynes revealed on Bodyslam.net that she reached out to her sources in AEW and was told Fenix injured his hip and back and is doubtful for the pay-per-view. The source did say he might still appear in the match, but only as a late participant.
Haynes was told: "I highly doubt it. If he does go, he'll probably be one of the last entrants and won't do hardly anything."
This could force the young promotion to announce two mystery participants for the Casino Ladder match. Speculation has been rife about who the ninth competitor will be. Some have tipped former NXT Superstar Chris Hero to make his AEW debut while others believe 61-year-old Sting could shockingly return to the ring.
