During the last episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio, the well-known Dave Meltzer revealed that the former AEW champion, Kenny Omega, has been suffering for some time from various physical problems that will lead him to have several surgeries.
Reporter Dave Meltzer’s words about Kenny Omega’s condition: “Kenny has several physical problems. As far as I know, he has knee problems, shoulder problems, an abdominal hernia and probably other minor ailments as well.
At Full Gear, he didn’t have the strength to fight. He had told me before the show that he could raise a bar to the maximum and only do the match without his back. I think it will take some time to do some surgery. I don’t know how he will end and when he returns at the moment, he hopes to be back in February, but it’s still too early to talk about it.”
Backstage news on Kenny Omega
In fact, for some time now, the AEW Superstar, he has been living with various annoyances that give him no respite. The same thing happened to Full Gear and this did not allow him to express himself at 100% of his form, despite the last however great performances in the ring.
Also according to PW Insider’s Mike Johnson, the former AEW World Champion will be forced to stay away from the scene for quite some time, mainly due to his shoulder injury which should be the one that bothers him the most.
After losing the title against Cowboy Shit, Hangman Adam Page, in AEW Full Gear 2021, last Saturday, The Cleaner after two years of non-stop appearances in the ring, will take a well-deserved break. At the moment the stop period has not been communicated and made official by anyone, but it should be quite long; the various physical problems of Kenny Omega, in fact, do not allow him to return in a short period of time.
After WWE scheduled the Supersized SmackDown to go head to head with Rampage, Tony Khan threw down the gauntlet during an interview with the New York Post. “If we’re going to start trying to directly head-to-head compete with each other at this time of year where there are all these other things happening in sports, let’s go.
I’m not the one who threw the gloves off, but if somebody has to do the talking and sell the fight I will be the one to do it,” said Khan. A big part of AEW’s growth has been fueled by the addition of stars such as CM Punk and Bryan Danielson who made their name in WWE. A number of current Superstars have also been linked with a move.
