Backstage Update On Kenny Omega’s AEW Return

Medical professionals are still in the process of putting Kenny Omega’s battle-damaged body back together, it seems.

Dave Meltzer writes in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the former AEW World Champion is currently recovering following arthroscopic knee surgery, which will take about 10 weeks. In addition, Omega will undergo a procedure for a sports hernia at the end of March, which comes with a two-month recovery time.

As things stand, there is still no timetable for his AEW return.

Omega has been absent from AEW television this the post-Full Gear 2021 episode of Dynamite last November, on which he signed off with his Elite stablemates, saying he’d be taking time off. Sidelined with myriad knee and shoulder injuries, the aforementioned hernia, and vertigo, the immediate reporting painted a grim picture of Kenny’s physical condition after several years of intense wear and tear.

And if the injuries weren’t enough, testing positive for COVID-19 in January may have set Omega back even further.

It’ll likely now be summer before Omega is back in a wrestling ring. AEW and Kenny had originally planned for a March comeback, though it sounds like he still has a ways to go.
