After losing the AEW Championship to Hangman Page, it was reported by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer that Omega was having minor surgeries on his shoulder, knee, abdomen, and possibly on his septum.

Omega had been the champion since October 19, 2019, when he beat Rey Fenix at Heroes Inmortales XIII just weeks after Dynamite premiered on TNT.
