Tony Khan Says Britt Baker Could Miss Up To Two Months, Rey Fenix Expected Back Soon

AEW Double or Nothing underwent some last-minute changes thanks to some injuries coming out of Wednesday's Dynamite. 

First, Britt Baker was pulled from her scheduled bout against Kris Statlander after suffering a knee injury during a tag team match on Dynamite. During AEW Double or Nothing, Dr. Michael Sampson revealed that Baker suffered an interior tibia fracture, a partial lateral collateral ligament tear, and a small degree of a popliteus tendon tear.

Tony Khan said during the media scrum that they dodged bullets with both injuries.

"Britt will be out, we think six to eight weeks. Less than two months, ballpark, is a good estimate," he said.

Baker will be on AEW Dynamite this Wednesday to provide an update on her status. 

The other change to Double or Nothing occurred in the Casino Ladder Match where Rey Fenix was pulled from the match after getting banged up on Dynamite. Fenix landed hard on the outside after coming up short on a springboard flip. 

Joey Janela replaced Fenix in the match. 

"Fenix, it was close. He's limping. I don't think he would have been able to give 100% and also it wouldn't have been smart to put him out there in that situation. We made a judgment call. I think he'll be back soon," said Khan.

Khan went on to thank Janela and Ford for stepping up as replacements.
