“While a definitive decision remains pending, signs point towards Kenny Omega opting for intestinal surgery. He has been enduring considerable discomfort over the past months and, despite fluctuations, surgery is gaining favorability following recommendations from two independent physicians.

“While not yet set in stone, the likelihood of surgery increases, especially considering his aspirations to return to professional wrestling at full capacity, necessitating resolution of perforated sections in his intestine and colon … Achieving optimal physical condition becomes paramount in this scenario. Comparisons to past wrestling icons like Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Brock Lesnar underline the seriousness of Omega’s health concerns, which have bordered on life-threatening.”
