AEW World Champion Kenny Omega is feeling a lot better these days as he has been working through an athletic hernia.

Dave Meltzer reported Omega's injury several weeks ago in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, but said this week that the champion is feeling a lot better following stem cell treatment and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy.

"He said it wasn’t night and day, but he felt it made a world of difference," Meltzer wrote.

Several weeks ago, Meltzer said Omega was dealing with the hernia, a deep tailbone bruise, seven stiches following a belt shot to PAC at Double or Nothing, a stomach virus and "the normal wear and tear on his knees."

"...He’s definitely in a lot of pain getting through the recent big matches. At the fan fest the day before the PPV, he said there are days he wakes up and walks around where he thinks maybe he’s close to the time to hang it up because his body is feeling worse. But, he also noted that having real fans in the building when he’s performing makes him feel a lot better," Meltzer wrote.

Omega defeated Jungle Boy on the Saturday, June 26th AEW Dynamite, retaining his title.
