AEW's Anthony Ogogo back training in United States after eye surgery


AEW's Anthony Ogogo has returned to the United States after undergoing eye surgery, according to QT Marshall. 

In an interview with Daily DDT, Marshall revealed that Ogogo had recently returned to the country after leaving to undergo surgery on his eye, the tenth total eye operation that Ogogo has had.

“He just came back. He was overseas getting everything taken care of, so we’ll see," Marshall said.

Marshall indicated that there are no immediate creative plans for Ogogo to return to the active AEW roster. "I think it’s about right place, right time and trying to figure out the right story as well," said Marshall. "But in the meantime, he’s been training and working out and doing what he does. He’ll be ready when that call comes.”

“I try to explain that to Anthony and everyone’s itching to get back,” he added. “Right now, we have a huge roster of huge stars, so it’s just one of those things of going back to the drawing board and figuring it out."

Ogogo scored two singles wins in AEW in April and May of this year, then dropped a decision to Cody Rhodes at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view on May 30. He teamed with Marshall to defeat Rhodes and Lee Johnson on a Friday edition of Dynamite in June, but has been out of action since.
