Kenny Omega Reportedly Banged Up After AEW Dynamite Steel Cage Match With Jon Moxley

Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega went to war inside a steel cage on Wednesday's episode of "AEW Dynamite." However, due to one particular moment in the match, Omega may have walked away at less than 100%.

With Moxley positioned on the apron between the cage and the ropes, Omega charged forward to deliver a V-Trigger. But, upon connection, that panel of the cage became dislodged, causing both men to spill to the outside with Omega getting caught up on the chain link structure by his leg.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Omega was "a little banged up" following the bout but seems to be doing fine overall, physically at least. Emotionally might be a different story for "The Cleaner." With Omega closing in on another victory over Moxley, his long-time mentor Don Callis had other plans. Callis interrupted Omega's winning pinfall by attacking Omega with a screwdriver and setting the table for Moxley to emerge victorious. Following Callis' shocking betrayal, Omega was helped to the back by The Young Bucks. "If I can't trust The Bucks, if I can't trust my family, who can I trust? Who can I trust?" he said in disbelief.

In the wake of Omega's past injuries, Omega walking away from Wednesday night relatively unscathed comes as good news. After Omega lost the AEW World Championship to "Hangman" Adam Page at AEW Full Gear in November 2021, he took some time off to recover from various injuries, including a torn labrum in his shoulder and ongoing issues with his knee. Omega's hiatus went on to last nine months before heĀ returned to action last August.
