Kenny Omega suffered a defeat at the hands of Jon Moxley following Don Callis’ betrayal in the main event Steel Cage Match on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Omega is “a little banged up” following the cage match but is doing okay overall.
The bout included a spot in which Omega nailed Moxley with a V Trigger that knocked them both through a gimmicked cage wall.
The idea was that Omega relaxed his body on the cage collapse. The Cleaner was under the impression that if he was tense at all, he could have ended up with an injury.
Meanwhile, Tony Deppen will be shelved for a couple of months after suffering a broken arm at Thursday night’s GCW Fight Night Brooklyn.
Deppen wrestled Zack Sabre Jr. at the GCW show. Following the match, Deppen announced on Twitter that he needs to undergo surgery and will be out for the next few months. Deppen wrote:
“Somehow I’ve made it 17 years into my journey of pro wrestling without a major injury – until now.
Last night a freak accident turned into a severe break on my arm. I continued to work with a broken arm for a few more mins, cause they match meant way more to me than anything. According to the doctor, There’s no way for it to heal back into place naturally, so the only option is to undergo surgery.
At the moment they can’t schedule it for about a week or two; after that it’ll be a 2 month recover to make sure the steel plate in my arm heals properly.
I’ll be honest, at the moment, I’m scared and a little overwhelmed. 2 kids, not a contracted wrestler, and a variety of other things that come up as an adult; and l’m not sure what l’m going to do. But I’m going to do what I do, and get through this, and come out stronger than ever.
It’s not gonna be fun – besides COVID, this will be thee longest l’ve gone with out wrestling in 17 years. I don’t know what to do with myself, especially with one arm. Ha.all I know is I’m going to work harder than i have ever done.
Thanks to gcw the opportunity, thanks to Zach for the match – truly the botb – and thank you to the fans for the amazing support.
See y’all in 2-3 months
I can’t type with one hand so I apologize
Thank y’all ❤️ pic.twitter.com/lDxXElI1r0
