The champ is aching. There are only a handful of wrestlers in the world today who are the top stars in their promotion. These are the kind of stars who are going to be the major focal point of their shows most of the time and that is because there is no one like them. It can be rather difficult to replace them if something happens, and now one of the bigger stars in the world is not doing so well.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AAA, AEW and Impact Wrestling World Champion Kenny Omega has been dealing with a variety of injuries. However, Omega has been undergoing stem cell treatment and PRP therapy and is doing much better. Omega’s injuries include a “deep” bone bruise near his tailbone, an athletic hernia and banged up knees.
Omega currently holds three World Titles and has scheduled defenses for two of them. He will be defending the Impact Wrestling World Title against Sami Callihan at Slammiversary on July 17. Omega will also defend the AAA Mega Title on August 14 in Mexico City, Mexico. There is no word on when he will be defending the Impact Wrestling World Title, though he successfully defended the title against Jungle Boy on June 26.
Omega works a heck of a schedule. Check out some of his recent matches:
Opinion: I’m not at all surprised that Omega is banged up as he has wrestled a very hard hitting and intense style for a long time now. That is going to catch up with you at some point and there is no way around it. Hopefully Omega can stay healthy enough for a long time to come, as he is a pretty important part of the wrestling landscape at the moment in more than one company.
What do you think of Omega? When will he drop his titles? Let us know in the comments below.
