Kyle O’Reilly Shares Update On His Injury WWE

AEW star Kyle O’Reilly has commented on his injury, providing an update on his condition.

Following Sting attacking O’Reilly on the June 17 edition of Rampage, Tony Khan confirmed that O’Reilly was written off TV to deal with a legitimate injury.

Khan noted that he expects Bobby Fish, who is also currently on the shelf, to return to action before O’Reilly.

Speaking on This is VANCOLOUR, O’Reilly noted that he is currently banged up from wrestling, and didn’t realise the extent of his injuries until recently.

Noting that he’ll likely find out his expected recovery time this week, O’Reilly said:

“This October, I’ll be wrestling for 17 years now. It’s a lot of bumps, a lot of wear and tear on your body. Fortunately, nothing serious has really happened to me. I’ve been hurt a lot, I’ve been injured, but I’ve always grinded through, made the date, showed up and performed as well as I can in the ring despite whatever I was nursing.

“Sometimes, the medical staff needs to save us from ourselves. As wrestlers, we’ll go until the wheels fall off. ‘My shoulder is hurt? Okay, I won’t do any moves where I land on my shoulder.’ We’re crazy like that. This is something I’ve been dealing with, it’s a nagging thing that I’ve been dealing with, specifically, pretty bad for the last five years.

“In the last few weeks of wrestling on AEW, I’ve been really banged up and didn’t know the extent of it until now. I still don’t know all the information, so I don’t want to disclose exactly what is happening with me.

“I need more information and I should know probably this week what the recovery time is going to be and what the recovery will entail. All I can do is, if there is time off, use it to remotivate myself, get in better shape, and come back stronger than ever before.”

In addition to O’Reilly and Fish, Adam Cole is reportedly out of action due to a shoulder injury and a concussion.

A number of top AEW names are currently on the shelf, including AEW World Champion CM Punk, who is recovering from a foot injury.
