AEW's Kenny Omega Reveals When He Started To Suffer From Vertigo While Wrestling
Omega has been dealing with vertigo since 2017
After dropping the AEW World Championship to Hangman Page at Full Gear 2021, Kenny Omega took Tim off to heal up from several injuries.
It was also revealed that Omega had been dealing with vertigo for several years, and during an interview with Wrestling Observer Radio, Omega has pinpointed when he first started suffering from vertigo - the 2017 G1 tournament:
“This will sound silly, but I’m just trying to speak as honestly and as candidly as possible,” began Omega. “But when it [vertigo] had happened and I remember when it had happened - I had one of the Block finals against [Kazuchika] Okada in one of the G1s, the one that I ended up going in the finals against [Tetsuya] Naito and I had taken the Okada dropkick and it was just a fluke thing. Okada kind of does like, you know, a nice, high, pretty dropkick as everyone knows and he had landed on the side of my head with his knee off the dropkick. So it’s almost like he did the dropkick and kind of like, sort of moonsault out of it and I bumped, you know, I guess under him and then the knee came down and I kind of knew when that happened, I was like, ‘Woah! I got caught with something.’ I wasn’t sure what and I finished the match and it was totally fine and I loved the match, it was one of my favourite matches.”
