Kenny Omega used to one of the best things about All Elite Wrestling until he suffered a major setback in his career. The Cleaner racked up a couple of injuries that led to him taking a break from wrestling.
Omega was recently on CEO Gaming Twitch channel where he answered fan questions about his ongoing rehab. The former AEW World Champion said if he suffers another major setback that causes another long stint in rehab, he’ll be done with the process and won’t go back ever.
“If I get another major setback, that’s it – I’m done. I can’t do this ever again. It’s like two times, three times a day. It’s really painful. And without even knowing that what it’s gonna be like once I get back in the ring. It’s scary actually.
“To come back with anything less than expected would just bring ridicule, which I get every day anyway. So you can probably understand and imagine how difficult it is struggling twice, 3 times a day to get things to work, that maybe never worked before.”
Omega has previously said that returning to AEW backstage hurt his rehab progress. He also wanted to be back for the Forbidden Door pay-per-view event, but couldn’t due to his current condition.
It remains to be seen when Omega will return to the squared circle. The Cleaner has been dealing with vertigo, which he suffered during a match against Kazuchika Okada in 2018, among other injuries.
