Kenny Omega coming to AEW was met with a lot of expectations from fans, who wanted him to compete at the same level as he did in New Japan Pro Wrestling. However, he did not do that and he has also suffered an injury. However, he continues to wrestle through the pain.
During his appearance on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that he could see Omega was injured for a long time. He mentioned the cupping marks that could be seen on his shoulder.
Kenny Omega revealed that he has a torn labrum. He said that he has managed to not have surgery thanks to the AEW medical team. The trainers and doctors keep monitoring him and provide the necessary assistance.
He especially credited his trainer Bryce Ready, who helped him maintain his physical conditioning and avoid surgery.
Omega then said that, “If things get worse, of course, that’s an option I have to consider,” but he will not undergo surgery just yet. He goes to the trainers “and they patch me up.”
Omega will challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Heavyweight Championship on the December 2nd episode of AEW Dynamite.
