Kyle O’Reilly made his AEW debut on the December 22nd, 2021, episode of Dynamite. In that show, O’Reilly helped Adam Cole defeat Orange Cassidy. He then reunited with Cole and Bobby Fish. Later, they formed Undisputed Elite along with Young Bucks.
The 36-year-old last competed on the June 8th, 2022 episode of AEW Dynamite, where he lost to Jon Moxley. O’Reilly underwent neck fusion surgery in September of last year.
On Instagram, the former NXT Tag Team Champion provided an update on his health condition. Kyle O’Reilly stated that he suffered a rare post-surgical complication. As a result, he was unable to move his arm. However, he learned about a Neubie device which helped him to recover and regain control of his shoulder.
“I had my neck fused last September to fix some nerves that had gotten themselves compressed somehow. I’m sure a career of landing on my head for a living played a role but sadly we’ll never know. Regardless, I had been in pain and losing strength in my right arm for some time and no amount of tape or denial could delay my surgery any longer.
Unfortunately, I suffered from a rare post-surgical complication and suddenly I couldn’t move my arm at all. “C5 palsy” the doctor said, and “nerves take a long time to heal.” So I was left to be patient and test my perseverance….
A few months ago I discovered the Neubie device @neufitrfp an electric stim machine that runs on direct current akin to the human nervous system. The machine has many terrific uses but specializes in helping those with post-surgical neurological injuries.
Within a month of using the Neubie I once again had full range of motion in my shoulder. My nerves are all online again and firing with enough power to get the dinosaurs back in their pens.”
Kyle O’Reilly is hoping to get back into the squared circle once fully recovered.
