Update on Kenny Omega’s health and future direction following his return to AEW

As seen during the August 17th 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite, Kenny Omega made his return to in-ring action after missing nine months.

Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that even though Omega was wearing a compression shirt and shoulder brace during the match, “what appeared to be every injury giving him pain and him coming back way too soon was actually almost all selling and storytelling for a long-term story.” According to Meltzer, the story is that Omega appears to be “rusty” but will eventually transform into the Omega that fans were expecting.

Omega wrote the following on Twitter regarding his return…

“The pieces aren’t all there yet but I refuse to burden the Bucks with my limitations. We have a real chance at this. I’ll be even stronger in round 2. I’ll surpass where I was at. I’ll surpass everyone.”
