AEW's Kenny Omega Has Been Wrestling With Vertigo Since 2018

A spinning squared circle for Omega

Kenny Omega has remained one of the best wrestlers in the world despite suffering from bouts of vertigo while performing inside the squared circle.

Speaking during a chiropractic adjustment from Dr. Beau Hightower, Omega revealed he gets dizzy inside the ring and he has had to train himself to wrestle inside a spinning squared circle. 

"Yeah, it's been an issue since 2018. I just get really bad vertigo. I get dizzy in the ring. I can't - the room spins. It's been a new skill I've had to inherit is wrestling in a spinning ring. So to make sure I get that straightened out as much as I can, as often as I can is really paramount for my performances," Omega added.

"Yeah, there's a myriad of issues with professional wrestling and you can work as safely as you can, But you can't avoid everything. There's always something that could go wrong." 

Vertigo isn't the only issue Omega has had to deal with and The Best Bout Machine reportedly worked his Full Gear match against Hangman Page with a shoulder injury
