Kenny Omega’s in-ring skills made him one of the most discussion-worthy wrestlers in the industry. His AEW World Title reign was fantastic for many fans as he has competed in several top-class matches. He might be the Best Bout Machine but don’t expect him to be at AEW Double Or Nothing.

Omega has not been seen on AEW television following his match at Full Gear back in November last year. This is because he took time off to heal from all his injuries that took their toll on his body. He has been backstage for the past few weeks helping out where he can as a producer.

According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Kenny Omega will not be in Las Vegas this week for the Double or Nothing pay-per-view. He still has a lot of healing to do.

Kenny Omega went to a couple of tapings in the last few weeks to work backstage but in hindsight the travel was too early for the healing needed for his injuries and he won’t be in Las Vegas this week for the PPV show. Omega did say that the parts of his body that are healthy he is able to train well and is pushing himself harder every week. Other parts the healing is slow.

He said he’s resigned to the fact that physically he will never be 100 percent, but he is looking at reversing some of the physical damage and being able to return and this time off and fixing up his different injuries would extend his time as an effective pro wrestler

Kenny Omega isn’t anywhere near close to an in-ring return. In the meantime, Kenny Omega is working as a producer at AEW TV tapings. It remains to be seen when the former AEW World Champion once again. Hopefully, it won’t be that long, but his return could see a lot of fanfare when that time comes.
