UPDATEx2: AAW Wrestling has confirmed that Ray Fenix actually did not suffer a stinger during last night’s AAW show in Austin, TX and that Fenix has been diagnosed with a muscle contusion of the neck. The injury was originally thought to be a stinger because Fenix told those around him that his ams and legs felt like they were on fire. The injury was believed to be suffered after Fenix didn’t tuck his head properly while he executed a backflip into a stunner.

Fenix is out of the hospital but won’t be working the House of Glory show in New York City tonight. The plan is for him to take several weeks of rest.

UPDATE: PWInsider has some more details on what happened with Ray Fenix at last night’s event. According to the report, Fenix suffered a stinger while trying to execute a stunner. Per the report, he apparently didn’t tuck his head enough when he was trying to execute the move. He told the people who were checking on him that he felt “fire” running up and down his arms and legs after hitting the move.

Fenix was able to move his arms and legs after last night’s show. He was taken into the locker room on a stretcher before being taken to a local hospital in Austin, Texas. There’s no word yet on if he’s been released from hospital.

ORIGINAL: WrestlingInc.com reports that it appears that Fenix appears was legit injured at last night’s AAW show in Texas. He appeared to have an awkward landing after attempting a springboard cutter move. Some live event photos and footage of the injury were posted on Twitter, which you can see below. The match was ended early, and Fenix was taken out of the building on a stretcher.

It looks like after Fenix landed, he started clutching his head. AR Fox then entered the ring, and then he was pinned by Pentagon to quickly end the match. Fenix was then taken out on a stretcher.

The accounts for AAW and AAW co-owner Danny Daniels did provide some updates on Fenix. Per the AAW Twitter, “In regards to @ReyFenixMx – he has been taken to a local hospital as a precaution due to an injury he suffered during his match this evening at #LUCHACITY. We will keep everyone appraised of any developments.”

Danny Daniels later wrote, “At the hospital with @ReyFenixMx. He’s ok but just needs to take it easy for a bit.” The nature and what type of injury he suffered has not yet been revealed.

As previously reported, The Lucha Bros recently appeared at the Double or Nothing Ticket Announcement Party to announce their signing with the promotion and set up a planned match with The Young Bucks for the upcoming event.
