Report: AEW's Kenny Omega Likely Needs Multiple Surgeries, Hoping To Return In February

Months on the shelf

Kenny Omega revealed on Wednesday's edition of Dynamite that he would be taking some time away from All Elite Wrestling to "fix" things, telling The Young Bucks to hold down the fort in his absence. 

The Best Bout Machine has notably been dealing with several injuries throughout 2021 and he underwent a stem cell treatment in the summer which Omega noted "made the world of difference."

Injuries, including one to his shoulder, have continued to bother the former AEW World Champion, though, and Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Omega will like require multiple surgeries to solve his long list of issues. 

"More than just that (his shoulder) actually, he's got a lot of different issues. Knee, shoulder, abdominal hernia that he's been working through. There's others too. So he'll be getting multiple surgeries most likely and everything is kind of to be determined. I guess the idea is to try and get as many of these things taken care of at the same time but it's a lot of body parts to rehab at the same time," Meltzer said.

It was also noted by Meltzer that there is no target date for Omega's return but The God Of Professional Wrestling is hoping to come back in February. 

Furthermore, there is no word on if Omega will be able to defend the AAA Mega Championship against El Hijo del Vikingo at TripleMania Regia on December 4.
