• AEW Wrestler Is Dealing With A Lot Of Issues After His Surgery
AEW wrestler Kyle O’Reilly has been out of action since August 3rd 2022. He underwent a neck fusion surgery.
He recently went on Instagram to give an update on his health:
“New year, new me. I hate how cheesy and cliche that sounds but in the case of Kyle O’Reilly and 2023 it rings very true.
Dealing with a post-surgical issue (that I will disclose at a later date) has caused me a lot of frustration and I’ve spent the last few months of ’22 with anger and confusion.
In order for me to return to the ring I simply cannot come back as good as I was. I have to become better in every aspect of my athletic wellness. I have to train better, eat smarter and recover with intention.
Many of you are aware of my battle with type-1 diabetes and that also puts me at a disadvantage in terms of healing and recovery. Thankfully working with @thediabeticfighter has inspired me to regain control of my life and to finally hop off the blood sugar roller coaster.
I cannot recommend this man’s services enough, in 6 days alone I’m spending more time in my target range than I have in months. And of course I couldn’t pull it off without my trusty @eversensecgm. It’s astonishing how consistently accurate this device is and has been my tag-team partner for almost 5 years. If the transmitter falls off during physical therapy or when I walk into a door frame I can just stick it back on.
I haven’t spoken much about my injury and the mental struggles I’ve faced but I’m realizing how therapeutic it is to just write this down. Our words have so much power even if you’re just thinking them or writing them down.
So a ‘new me’ is a necessity to ensure that I will once again have the honor and privilege of walking down that ramp and stepping through those ropes. Expect more from me as the months go on and witness a glimpse into how I rebuild and retrain myself for a return that I can’t wait for you all to see.”
