Update On Kenny Omega's AEW Absence
Tony Khan has spoken about Kenny Omega's current condition.
AEW CEO Tony Khan has provided an update on Kenny Omega, who has been out action since being diagnosed with diverticulitis in December.
Speaking to Sportsgrid, Khan said:
"Kenny, we were all very worried about him. He's doing better but he was seriously sick, and his life could have been threatened had he not gotten to the doctors when he had. He was really sick and he's thankfully doing much better and we're all wishing Kenny the best and hoping and looking forward to seeing Kenny Omega back in AEW as soon as he's healthy."
A recent update by The Wrestling Observer's Bryan Alvarez noted that while Omega may eventually need surgery, it was hopeful that he will make a full recovery.
Regarding the surgery, Dave Meltzer added:
"Normally, you would have already done the surgery right away but his condition and everything was so bad that they could not risk the surgery at the time and now they are kind of just... it's going to be in seven weeks he'll either have the surgery or he won't and then at that point we'll see."
