During his interview on Wrestling Observer Radio, Kenny Omega provided an update on his health and said that he will not be back in the ring this month as he first expected.
“I was hoping to be back by February and it’s not looking that way anymore,” Omega said. “That’s not to say that there was a huge snag or that there’s something that is terribly wrong. It’s just trying to get appointments and things fixed, you have it in your brain that oh, yeah, I could just call a number and I’ll get in the next day. Unfortunately, there are sometimes waiting lists or there are other complications, which create follow up appointments and things like that. Of course, you know, there’s the whole COVID thing as well, which has backed up by a good two weeks or so. That caused me to miss appointments, which then caused me to have to rebook and that extended the time again.”
“It’s just that part of the recovery process is always really poopy right now, but it’s still on track, I’m still feeling a little bit better as time goes by, and that’s without even having to do a lot of the major procedures that need to be done. That’s just myself working with trainers and doing the proper rehab to strengthen the surrounding areas of the injured areas of the body. So it’s been a process, but it feels good to kind of learn from the ground up these new movements that help correct issues that would have otherwise been completely debilitating. So it’s going well. The training is going well. Once I’m actually able to try to get the knees fixed, to get the neck fixed, you know, the hernia and all that stuff, hopefully, I’m able to move around much better than I was before and kind of look like the guy that was doing this 10 years before.”
