Kenny Omega will likely be having surgery after reportedly speaking with two different doctors

In December of 2023, AEW star Kenny Omega announced that he was out of action “indefinitely” with what was reported as diverticulitis. In a Twitch stream earlier this month, Omega said he was uncertain if he was going to need surgery.

Dave Meltzer of reported this week that while no decision has been made, the likelihood is Omega will be getting surgery on his intestines. Meltzer noted the following…

“He said surgery is becoming more and more likely as two different doctors have told him they think it’s the best option. It’s not 100 percent that he will have surgery but it’s looking more likely, particularly if he wants to get into condition to resume his career that he will probably have to get rid of the perforated sections of his intestine and colon.”

If and when Omega eventually returns, he is expected to resume his rivalry with Kazuchika Okada.
