Kenny Omega AEW: Latest on his recovery from injury

Last updated

Kenny Omega has been missing from AEW programming for quite some time, but what is the latest on ‘The Cleaner?’

Recent reports from a number of different outlets have given a clearer picture of where Omega is right now, with the former IWGP Heavyweight Champion set to take the majority of 2022 off at least.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Omega is still recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, with Dave Meltzer noting that there is no time frame for his return.

Meltzer wrote: “Kenny Omega is currently recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. The recovery from this will take about ten weeks.

“He will be getting surgery to repair his sports hernia at the end of March and that’s about a two-month recovery. There are other things he’s also taking care of. There is no time frame set for his return” Meltzer concluded.

Kenny Omega Injury Update

Fightful Select also had some information on The Cleaner: “Fightful heard around the time of AEW Revolution that Kenny Omega was still getting surgeries and recovering from a variety of injuries” the Sean Ross Sapp fronted site revealed.

“One AEW star told Fightful it was ‘unreal the amount of things he worked through’ in order to stay in the ring, but that he was looking to heal up a variety of issues. 

“Wrestling Observer reported that Kenny Omega is recovering from knee surgery, and is set for sports hernia surgery at the end of the month. In addition, Fightful was told that Omega had sinus issues that he’d looked to clear up over the past several months, and a shoulder problem that he was hoping to avoid surgery on.”
