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


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.”
