REY FENIX INJURED
— Samir (@TexasBlueMoon) February 9, 2019
Appearing at an AAW show in Texas last night, Rey Fenix suffered an unfortunate injury. Competing with Pentagon Jr. against Myron Reed and AR Fox, Fenix suffered the injury attempting a springboard cutter from which he landed awkwardly. After the move, Fenix immediately grabbed his head and the match was abruptly finished with Penta picking up the win.
Although originally reported as a stinger, AAW has since posted an update correcting speculation. According to the promotion, Fenix suffered a muscle contusion. While this is unpleasant, it should heal completely with no long term implications.
UPDATE on @ReyFenixMx – He has been treated and released from the hospital with a muscle contusion. He is feeling good and will be back up to 100% after some rest.
We thank you all for your concern and for making #LUCHACITY such wonderful time!

JIMMY HAVOC UNWELL
Jimmy Havoc has tweeted complaining that he is suffering from blood poisoning. He says that he has been suffering with it for a few days and doesn’t expect to be feeling much better for a while to come. When trying to pinpoint where he might have picked up the infection Jimmy shared a .gif of himself chewing a fluorescent light tube at a deathmatch event.
I’ve been laid up with blood poisoning for the last few days, and have a feeling I’m not gonna be feeling good for quite a while yet.
If I had to guess why, let me give you exhibit A. pic.twitter.com/a99K59UPak

SETH ROLLINS STILL NOT CLEARED
Seth Rollins is still not cleared to compete and has been pulled from the advertising for all live events in February. Seth is currently absent from competition due to a back injury. According to John Pollock of Post Wrestling, Seth is due for a medical evaluation at this Monday’s RAW. With the possibility of Seth being cleared this Monday and WWE removing from live events for the remainder of the month, it’s fair to say that WWE is trying to protect one of their biggest assets.
WWE ADVERTISE INTERGENDER MATCH
It looks like the WWE are pushing further ahead with the idea of intergender wrestling. After having Nia Jax enter the men’s Royal Rumble last month they are now advertising a full intergender match. Once again Nia Jax in involved, with her opponent being named as Dean Ambrose. Appearing on local advertising, the contest is billed as a special attraction match, set to take place at a live event on the 22 February in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
