Kenny Omega Claims He’s ‘Done’ If He Has Another Major Injury Setback

0

All Elite Wrestling star Kenny Omega recently appeared on the CEO Gaming Twitch Channel, where he discussed several professional wrestling topics.

According to Omega, he’ll retire from in-ring competition if he gets injured again.

You can check out some highlights from the Twitch stream below:

On being “done” if he gets hurt this bad again:


“If I get another major setback, that’s it. That’s — that’s it, I’m done, I can’t do this ever again. It’s like two times, three times a day, really painful rehab. And without even knowing what it’s going to be like when I get back in the ring, I have no clue. It’s scary, actually.”


On his process of recovery:

“You see people, they come back to the ring and you’re just happy to see them back. And I think here is a different kind of expectation put on me. And I think that anything less than what they are expecting — which is already unrealistic — is going to lead to a lot of ridicule, which is what I get every day anyway. So you can probably understand and imagine how difficult it is, struggling twice or three times a day, trying to get things to work that maybe never worked before and trying to re-route things in your brain to get around the things that aren’t going heal.

People think, ‘Oh, Kenny is hurt, he took time off.’ Snap your fingers, I come back and I’m 100%. Life doesn’t work that way. Bodies don’t work that way. Athletes don’t work that way. It’s very difficult to formulate this plan and to execute it. And we’ll see how I do.”
