Kenny Omega is not expected to be in Las Vegas for AEW Double or Nothing. 

While the 38-year-old has been backstage at recent tapings, he found it was too early in the healing process to travel with his injuries. Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Omega will not be in town for this weekend's pay-per-view.  

"Kenny Omega went to a couple of tapings in the last few weeks to work backstage but in hindsight the travel was too early for the healing needed for his injuries and he won’t be in Las Vegas this week for the PPV show," Meltzer wrote.

It was reported in March that Omega was recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery and was scheduled for surgery to repair a sports hernia later that month.  

"Omega did say that the parts of his body that are healthy he is able to train well and is pushing himself harder every week," Meltzer continued. "Other parts the healing is slow. He said he’s resigned to the fact that physically he will never be 100 percent, but he is looking at reversing some of the physical damage and being able to return and this time off and fixing up his different injuries would extend his time as an effective pro wrestler."

Omega hasn't performed since dropping the AEW World Championship to Hangman Page at Full Gear on November 13, 2021.
