AEW's Kyle O'Reilly Provides Update On Injury

Kyle O'Reilly suffered surgical complications

Kyle O’Reilly hasn’t wrestled since all the way back at AEW Double or Nothing 2022 over a year ago, and hasn’t been seen on AEW programming since August 3rd of that year when he and the other members of the Undisputed Era attacked the Young Bucks. There was no follow up to this story though due to the injuries of those involved.

After a lot of radio silence on O’Reilly’s recovery and comeback, he has finally given an update on status. O’Reilly had neck fusion surgery, but on his Instagram he revealed that complications led to him being unable to use his right arm. He explained;

“Unfortunately, I suffered from a rare post-surgical complication and suddenly I couldn’t move my arm at all. “C5 palsy” the doctor said, and “nerves take a long time to heal.” So I was left to be patient and test my perseverance. Needless to say it was disheartening to relearn activities like brushing my teeth and wiping my ass with my left hand. My career wasn’t in question any longer, it was my quality of life. But focusing on what I could control every day kept me sane, such as being the best father I could possibly be. Every other moment has been spent rehabbing, dry needling and training.

“A few months ago I discovered the Neubie device @neufitrfp an electric stim machine that runs on direct current akin to the human nervous system. The machine has many terrific uses but specializes in helping those with post-surgical neurological injuries. Within a month of using the Neubie I once again had full range of motion in my shoulder. My nerves are all online again and firing with enough power to get the dinosaurs back in their pens.”

O’Reilly went on to say that he felt lost for a long while over the last year, but now he can finally look ahead, with a return to the ring no longer being a mirage.
