Last night, AAA Mega Champion Fenix (aka Rey Fenix) battled CMLL standout El Barbaro Cavernario in the Leyenda de Plata 2018 tournament final at CMLL Super Viernes in a 2 out of 3 Falls Match. While Barbaro won the match 2-1, the result wasn’t the bad part. Fenix took to his Instagram today to announce that he suffered a groin injury during the match and is now forced to cancel his appearances for the remainder of 2018 to heal the injury.

A tough blow for the former Lucha Underground Champion, as he was a huge part of the television storylines for both IMPACT Wrestling and Major League Wrestling (MLW), as well as his appearances with a multitude of other indies in the US and Mexico. It’s not known when in the match he suffered the injury, but he did take a nasty bump at one point when a suicide dive resulted in a miscommunication with Barbaro and he landed flat on his back outside the ring.
