Kyle O’Reilly has subjected himself to extensive physical strain throughout his career, ultimately landing in AEW alongside numerous compatriots. He was absent for a long time due to his injury, and now it seems Adam Cole has provided an update on his status.

Adam Cole made a triumphant return to AEW TV on January 11th, announcing his imminent in-ring comeback after a prolonged absence due to concussions and a torn labrum. Fans certainly missed him in a huge way.

That being said, fans started wondering what became of Kyle O’Reilly. O’Reilly underwent neck fusion surgery and it was expected that he would be out of action for a long time.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Adam Cole provided an update on Kyle O’Reilly’s health after his surgery. Cole revealed that O’Reilly is in high spirits so far.


“I talk to him every day. He’s doing good. He’s doing really well. He’s in a situation now where he’s working so hard to make sure that he gets healthy as soon as he possibly can, but at the same time making sure that he doesn’t rush back.

Kyle was really banged up and it got to a point where he kind of couldn’t take it anymore. I’m so glad that he got fixed and got healthy and is recovering day by day, every day.

Early on in the process, I think he was so discouraged because there was so little that he was able to do, but now as time goes on and he’s starting to be able to do more and more in therapy and rehab, you see the excitement and wheels turning of him already thinking about how he can’t wait to get back. He’s in good spirits and he has a lot of people around him that love him a lot.”

We will have to wait and see how Kyle O’Reilly will be booked once he is back in AEW. For the time being, fans are simply waiting for his return, as he has a lot left to prove to everyone.

As always, keep checking back here at Ringside News as we continue monitoring this ongoing situation.
