Kenny Omega reportedly worked last night at AEW Full Gear with a hurt shoulder during his AEW World Championship match with Hangman Page, according to the latest episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio.

Dave Meltzer said that Omega had told him that he was having trouble lifting heavy weights. Omega also noted before to Meltzer that he could work a match without his shoulders at 100% if he had to (h/t Fightful for the transcription).

I don’t know if he has no strength (in his shoulders), but he can’t lift heavy weights with them. I don’t even know if he can lift with them. The last time we were talking about it, he said he was able to lift the bar. So it’s 45 pounds… He’s told me, ‘I can work a match without my shoulders.’

Hangman Page ended up winning last night’s match and becoming the new AEW World Champion.

As noted, Eddie Kingston and Malakai Black didn’t appear at this morning’s Big Event convention in New York City due to injuries sustained at last night’s Full Gear.
