Kenny Omega: When the AEW star is expected to return?

Last updated

The former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega has been away from the programming for quite some time now. He previously dropped the AEW World title against ‘Hangman’ Adam Page for going on a hiatus.

He is currently dealing with multiple injuries but he is expected to make his return to the promotion soon. He had been working with a torn labrum in his shoulder. At the same time, he was also dealing with an abdominal hernia, and knee problems. Kenny Omega has also suffered vertigo in recent times.

Tony Khan provides update on Kenny Omega

The AEW President Tony Khan recently provided an update on Omega. He spoke with PWInsider and said that Omega is expected to make his comeback to in-ring action later this year. He admitted that the former AEW World Champion was working through a lot of injuries:

‘We miss Kenny Omega greatly,’ Tony Khan admitted. ‘He’s one of the greatest wrestlers of all time and was a dominant champion in AEW for almost a year. And I personally miss Kenny Omega being around very much. He’s healing from a bunch of injuries, significant injuries. And he wrestled through all of that and had some of the best matches in the history of the company while he was really beat up.

‘He really cares a lot about wrestling and he worked his ass off to fill up and make his matches great even when he was in a ton of pain and could barely get through it. Now it’s time for him to rehabilitate and heal and he’s going to come back stronger, and come back, I hope as good or even better than ever. I really believe the stuff he did while he was physically limited was so impressive. I think he was absolutely the wrestler of the year for 2021. And I’m very excited for Kenny Omega’s return in 2022. It’ll be a long time coming and we’d be excited to have him back.’

The fans are eagerly waiting to witness ‘The Cleaner’ back in action.
