As seen at Sunday night’s AEW WrestleDream 2023 pay-per-view event, Rey Fenix was taken out of the AEW World Tag Team #1 Contender’s match very early on in the bout.
Taking to his Instagram page, the reigning AEW International Champion provided an update on his health. He wrote,
“The international championship has been a big challenge.
The night I became champion, I left the arena with the championship in my hands and with an old injury bothering me again. My first defense was painful, it did not allow the pain to stop me and continue until the fight was over, this coming Wednesday will be my second defense and I am doing my best to enter that ring and retain the champion.
I will defend this beautiful championship in any situation, a Luchador does not give up, a Luchador will always leave everything in every battle. I am a real Luchador and the man of a thousand lives, nothing and no one is going to stop me. R3Y F3N1X”
