Kyle O’Reilly hasn’t competed since the June 8th 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite. In July, O’Reilly said that he was “really banged up” but didn’t know all the information.
In an Instagram story from this week, O’Reilly implied that he underwent neck fusion surgery. O’Reilly published a photo of himself in a hospital bed as well as an advertisement for a Ford Fusion but the name “Ford” was replaced with “neck.” Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com noted that “AEW sources have confirmed Kyle O’Reilly recently underwent surgery but would not comment on the nature of it.”
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that like Adam Cole, O’Reilly reportedly has a five-year contract with AEW.
