Rey Fenix faces a period on the sidelines after breaking his arm on last night's episode of AEW Dynamite.

The Lucha Brother suffered the injury while he and brother Penta El Zero Miedo were defending their AEW World Tag Team Titles against Jurassic Express' Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus in the main event. Figure Four Online/The Wrestling Observer's Bryan Alvarez confirmed the arm break after the show, adding that Fenix was going to the hospital.

All the best to Rey in his recovery. There is currently no word on how long he will be out of action for.

It is likely that Fenix was hurt when taking a Luchasaurus Chokeslam off the apron, to the outside, and through a table. While this hasn't been confirmed yet, the high-flyer was being tended to after the spot and appeared to be in some pain, with Penta left to work the finish.

Jurassic Express took the Tag Team Titles for the first time after Jungle Boy countered Penta into a roll-up. Per F4W/WO, this was the planned finish, despite the injury.

The Lucha Brothers had been Tag Team Champions for 122 days after taking the belts from The Young Bucks at All Out 2021. Jurassic, meanwhile, are first-time gold-holders in AEW.
