Kenny Omega shared the sad news on social media about his situation and All Elite Wrestling.
Kenny Omega announced his indefinite absence from action after being hospitalized. It was later reported that Omega had been hospitalized due to Diverticulitis diagnosis, despite his best efforts to push through the pain caused by the illness.
On social media, some individuals have seen this diagnosis as a form of karma, referencing the name for Brock Lesnar’s F5 maneuver in AEW: Fight Forever, listed as Diverticulitis. Lesnar famously almost died from the illness, but Omega is not to blame for the name.
On Saturday, Omega responded to a fan on social media who implied that Kenny was receiving karma for the name in the game. The Best Bout Machine explained he had nothing to do with the name in a social media post of his own, stating he was the creative lead in the early stages of the game.
“Wtf you talking about? Even if I were in charge of EVERYTHING in game dev, I didn’t even know this name existed. I was creative lead in the early stages. That’s it. CAW move lists ain’t part of that. But sure, I deserve everything I get and worse.“
We will have to see how Tony Khan deals with Kenny Omega’s absence. He was supposed to team with Chris Jericho at Worlds End on December 30th to take on Ricky Starks and Big Bill for the AEW Tag Team Titles.
It’s good to see that Kenny Omega is able to get on social media. Hopefully, he is able to heal up very soon and get better. Diverticulitis is nothing to play with, and it can take anyone out of action, no matter how big they are.
