Rey Fenix has been pulled from Saturday’s AEW Double Or Nothing pay-per-view.
It was previously reported that Fenix had been medically cleared to compete after getting banged up during Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite episode. AEW announced late on Friday night that Fenix has been pulled from the Casino Ladder Match due to an injury. They noted that Fenix is not expected to miss a significant amount of in-ring time.
Fenix is being replaced by Joey Janela in the Casino Ladder Match.
