All Elite Wrestling had a major go-home episode of Dynamite this week, which saw the final hype towards the Double or Nothing PPV, which is set to take place this Saturday. Dynamite even recorded healthy ratings, with a massive win over NXT in the Wednesday Night Wars.
One thing that didn’t go right for AEW was the injuries suffered to three major superstars. We reported yesterday on how Fenix, Britt Baker and Matt Jackson suffered injuries during their matches on Dynamite, and it seems like two of these injuries are more serious than initially believed.
Fenix was apparently given a green-light for the matchup, but recent news from the Bodyslam states that the injury is rather severe. Fenix is set to be a part of the Casino Ladder Match at the PPV, along with eight other superstars, with the winner getting a shot at the AEW World Championship, currently held by Jon Moxley.
“I also asked if Fenix would be good to go Saturday in the Casino Ladder Match, and 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.”
Fenix is quite an athletic superstar and is known for his jaw-dropping aerial maneuvers. He went for a flip from the top rope to the outside but was unfortunately not caught by any of the three superstars and ended up landing hard on his back.
Britt Baker is also believed to be out of the PPV, as her knee was heavily taped after the show. She has reportedly suffered a torn ACL and her matchup against Kris Statlander could be in doubt. Unlike Fenix, who is part of a multi-man setup, Baker’s injury will force this match to be scrapped, or some other heel will have to step up in her place.
“I reached out to my sources within AEW today and inquired about Britt Baker’s health status following her injury on last night’s episode of Dynamite, and was told that she had her knee heavily wrapped up today and that it hurts pretty bad. I also asked about her status for Double Or Nothing and if she would be able to wrestle, and was told “personally I doubt she will be good.. but who knows.”
There is no major update on Matt Jackson, who suffered a broken rib after a crossbody attempt. He will be competing in the Elite team against Inner Circle in a Stadium Stampede match.
