Kyle O'Reilly's become a dad

Former Undisputed Era member in WWE and now official All Elite Wrestling athlete, Kyle O'Reilly, became the father of a little girl this week and he was the one who announced it on social media. In fact, O'Reilly reported on Instagram that his daughter, Janie Elizabeth Greenwood, was born on Monday 17 January and her name is in memory of Kyle's mother who unfortunately is no longer with us.

Good news for Kyle O'Reilly

Former NXT Superstars Johnny Gargano and Kyle O'Reilly have officially parted ways with WWE after their contracts expired this month. The two stars are no longer listed on WWE’s internal roster, which means they're both free to show up wherever they want.

In the Instagram post, with some photos attached, the wrestler wrote: "January 17, 2022, was the most important and surprising day of my life. Welcome to the world, Janie Elizabeth Greenwood. Named after my late mother who wanted to be a grandma more than anything, I'm so proud to be your father.

Life is so precious and beautiful! Share a birthday with some surprisingly influential and positive people including Michelle Obama, Betty White, Muhammad Ali and Jim Carrey, plus you were born on MLK Day [Martin Luther King] during a full moon.

That's some wildly positive energy right there! I can't wait to see you grow up." As written above, the post includes some photos of the beautiful little girl with a quote from children's author Robert Munsch: "I will love you forever, I will like you forever, as long as I live you will be my child." Kyle O'Reilly is currently under contract with AEW, where he teams up with Adam Cole and Bobby Fish.

He made his ring debut on December 29 at New Year's Smash, paired with Fish and Cole, defeating Chuck Taylor, Orange Cassidy and Trent Beretta. This came just three weeks after the wrestler decided to leave WWE by not renewing his contract, with a loss in the Steel Cage match to Von Wagner on December 7.

But now he seems to have started more than a new chapter in his life and we send a hug to him and to his family, wishing our best wishes to the two new parents. The report also mentions that neither star has signed a new deal, although WWE would've given them time off if they had re-signed.

Johnny Gargano and Kyle O'Reilly were ringside after NXT 2.0 went off the air, and they appeared to be emotional, more specifically Gargano.
