According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, AEW World Champion Kenny Omega has been dealing with various injuries as of late and has been in “a lot of pain” during recent matches. Omega was said to have sliced open his hand at the Double or Nothing PPV when he hit PAC with the AEW World Title and ended up needing seven stitches due to the incident. Meltzer noted that other injuries include “a deep bone bruise near his tailbone, the normal wear and tear on his knees and an athletic hernia.” On top of that, Omega was also suffering from a stomach virus.
During the AEW fan fest prior to Double or Nothing, Omega commented on how his body was hurting but having live fans in the building made him feel better.
Omega is currently scheduled to defend the Impact Wrestling world title against Moose at Saturday’s Against All Odds event. Omega also has an AEW World Title match against Jungle Boy set for the June 26th 2021 edition of AEW Dynamite.
