The latest news regarding Kenny Omega’s recovery from injuries
Former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega has been out of action since the November 2021 Full Gear PPV due to various injuries.
In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that Omega is currently recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery which takes around ten weeks. Furthermore, Omega will reportedly be getting surgery later this month to repair a sports hernia and there is around a two month recovery for that. There is said to be no time frame set for Omega’s return as he is taking care of other issues.
During an appearance on Wrestling Observer Radio last month, Omega commented on his injuries…
“The plan of course, and perhaps I was a little too optimistic, I was hoping to be back by February. It’s not looking that way anymore. That’s not to say there was a huge snag or something that is terribly wrong, it’s not that. It’s just, trying to get appointments and things fixed, you have it in your brain, ‘Oh yeah, I can call a number and get in the next day.’ Unfortunately, there are sometimes waiting lists or other complications which create follow-up appointments and things like that, and the whole COVID thing, which has backed everything up by two weeks or so. That’s caused me to missed appointments, which caused me to re-book and that extends the time. That part of the recovery process is always really goofy. It’s still on track. I’m still feeling a little bit better as time goes by and that’s without having to do major procedures that need to be done. That’s just working with trainers and doing the proper rehab to strengthen surrounding areas of the injured areas of the body.” (quote courtesy of Fightful.com)
