During a Twitter exchange, Kenny Omega revealed that he has been dealing with the effects of COVID-19. Omega also issued an apology to Jim Cornette.

Omega tweeted, "Shouldn’t have brought up any breathing issue. I, as well as many friends/acquaintances in other sports, are suffering due to Covid after effects. Not sure if you’ll accept, but I do apologize."

The apology comes after Cornette took issue with being mentioned by Omega in a tweet that was directed at someone in his mentions. Omega said this in response to someone who asked him to disavow Marty Scurll: "Will you bump up Corny’s oxygen so he can maybe get through a podcast without wheezing through every word? It’s harsh on the ears from what I hear."
