Fenix out of AEW World title eliminator tournament due to injury


Due to injury, Rey Fenix is out of AEW's World title eliminator tournament.

AEW posted a video today where Eddie Kingston announced that Fenix is forfeiting his first round win against Penta El Zero M in the tournament due to injury. Penta will face Kenny Omega in the semifinals on Dynamite next Wednesday (October 28).

Kingston told Fenix that he had to forfeit his spot because it's not about Fenix -- it's about The Family.

Fenix defeated his brother Penta in the first round of the World title eliminator tournament on Dynamite this week but got hurt in the process. The entire first round of the tournament was held this Wednesday, with Fenix defeating Penta, Omega defeating Sonny Kiss, Hangman Page defeating Colt Cabana and Wardlow defeating Jungle Boy. Page and Wardlow's semifinal match will also take place on Dynamite next Wednesday.

The finals of the World title eliminator tournament will be held at Full Gear on Saturday, November 7. The winner will get a future shot at the AEW World Championship.

Jon Moxley is the current AEW World Champion. He's defending his title against Kingston in an I Quit match at Full Gear.
