AEW announced earlier that Britt Baker would be unable to compete in her match due to injury and the same has fallen with another of AEW’s talents.
Rey Fenix has been removed from the Casino Ladder Match due to injury and will be replaced by Joey Janela.
AEW announced that Fenix will not miss any significant time but the injury was severe enough to remove him from the match. It is believed that Fenix was injured during a spot on the go-home episode of Dynamite.
You can view the announcement in the tweet below from the AEW Twitter account.

S.A.M.’s Spiel: Just like with Britt Baker, this most certainly sucks for Fenix. I am sure he had some crazy stuff planned for this match but Janela is not a bad replacement for him. The good news is that he will not miss a huge chunk of time and we all hope he is able to recover from this injury and be better than ever.
