Tony Khan has discussed Kenny Omega’s current condition after diverticulitis diagnosis.
Kenny Omega’s last TV appearance was on the December 13 edition of Dynamite, when he and Chris Jericho set up a match for Full Gear which would’ve seen them challenge for the AEW World Tag Team Championships. However, news broke less than two days later that the star had been hospitalised with diverticulitis, something which could’ve been worse had he not been sent for medical attention when he was.
In an interview with SportsGrid, AEW Owner Tony Khan offered an update on Omega, saying that everyone was extremely worried about his condition, but the Canadian is said to be doing much better now.
“We were all very worried about him (Kenny Omega). He’s doing better but you know, he was seriously sick and his life could have been threatened had he not gotten to the Doctors when he had. He was really sick and he’s thankfully doing much better and you know, we’re always wishing Kenny the best, and hoping and looking forward to seeing Kenny Omega back in AEW as soon as he’s healthy”-Tony Khan
Of course, it will still be a significant amount of time before Omega is able to be cleared to return to the ring. There is currently no timetable for his comeback, and we continue to wish him all the best with his recovery.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on the health and condition of Kenny Omega as soon as we hear more.
