AEW delivered a strong episode of Dynamite to continue the build to Full Gear this week, though the show came at a cost for a couple of notable wrestlers.
The Dark Order’s Alex Reynolds was knocked out while competing in the night’s main event. Private Party were performing their Hardy Party leg drop/splash combination on him, with Isiah Kassidy landing right on his head. Unable to move for several minutes while the match continued, Reynolds wasn’t tended to immediately, but taken away to a corner by The Blade, allowing him to get out of the match.
Even then, the medical response was delayed. He was out on his feet as he climbed back up and absorbed offence from Nick Jackson, though the Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online’s Bryan Alvarez has reported Reynolds was “feeling great” after the show. Cody came out to help the medical effort about the broadcast.
Rey Fenix also picked up a knock while wrestling his brother, Penta El Zero M, in their bruising tournament clash. The Lucha Brother took a rough landing on his neck and shoulder after exciting a second-rope headscissor and was visibly struggling for a short while after, though official Aubrey Edwards stayed communicative.
Fenix, who is set to face Kenny Omega next week, was “sore” after Dynamite (according to Dave Meltzer).
There is currently no word on whether or not either man faces a spell on the sidelines.
