During a Twitch stream for CEO Gaming, Kenny Omega discussed his rehab from injuries and said the followingÖ

ďIf I get another major setback, thatís it. Thatís it, Iím done, I canít do this ever again, iTwo times, three times a day, really painful rehab, not even knowing what itís going to be like when I get back in the ring. I have no clue. Itís scary, actually. You see people, they come back to the ring and youíre just happy to see them back. There is a different kind of expectation put on me, and I think that anything less than what they are expecting, which is already unrealistic, is going to lead to a lot of ridicule, which is what I get every day anyway. You can probably understand and imagine how difficult it is, struggling twice, three times a day, trying to get things to work that maybe never worked before, and trying to re-route things in your brain to get around the things that arenít going heal. People think, ĎKenny is hurt, he took time off,í snap your fingers, I come back and Iím 100%. Life doesnít work that way. Bodies donít work that way. Athletes donít work that way. Itís very difficult to formulate a plan and to execute it. Weíll see how I do.Ē (quote courtesy of Fightful.com)
