Kenny Omega reportedly returns in new AEW role

Last updated

Former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega has been sidelined since dropping the AEW World Title to ‘Hangman’ Adam Page at AEW Full Gear in November last year. Omega originally hoped to be back in action by February 2022, but it was then announced that he was going to undergo several surgeries and be out of action for a longer period of time.

It has been noted that Kenny Omega’s most recent surgery was to repair a sports hernia in April, which typically requires two or more months of recovery. Besides the hernia surgery, Omega has other issues that he is planning on taking care of before he makes a full-time return to competition. Well, it seems like he has returned to work but in a backstage role.

He has been recovering from various operations and it is still unclear what the timetable is for a potential return to the squared circle.

We will have to see when Omega makes his much-awaited in-ring return.
