It’s been over six months since Kenny Omega last wrestled inside of a wrestling ring and fans will be waiting a little bit longer for him to return.

He’s been away since November after dropping the World Title to Adam Page at the Full Gear pay-per-view event. Omega took time off due to injuries that needed to be surgically repaired.

While away from in-ring action, he has been working behind the scenes in AEW and is part of the development team for AEW’s upcoming video game. Despite rumblings that he could be close to making a return, that’s not the case.

The Young Bucks recently teased that when Omega is healthy he would return and face Vikingo. Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that “there isn’t even close to a date set for Omega to return.” He added that the third AAA TripleMania event isn’t until October and if Omega is healthy then this was a match he personally asked for.

Vikingo won the vacant AAA Mega Championship after Omega vacated the title at the end of 2021.

Omega previously stated that he hoped to be back in action by February, but admitted at the time that he was a little too optimistic and that turned out to be the case.
