WWE NXT Star Kyle O’Reilly Opens Up About Living With Type 1 Diabetes For Diabetes Awareness Month

November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and while WWE as a whole won’t make a big spectacle about it as it does in October for Breast Cancer Awareness, it certainly matters to one NXT star. This is The Undisputed Eras tag team specialist, Kyle O’Reilly, who has Type 1 Diabetes.

Who Is Kyle O’Reilly?


For those unfamiliar, O’Reilly is part of the NXT Faction ‘Undisputed Era’ where he is a record three time tag team champion, twice with longtime partner Bobby Fish & once with Roderick Strong, and at the time of writing he is one half of the reigning champions. Prior to coming to WWE, O’Reilly became a one-time Ring of Honor (ROH) World Champion, three-time ROH World Tag Team Champion alongside Bobby Fish, amd in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) he is a one-time World Champion and the winner of the promotion’s 2013 Battle of Los Angeles tournament. In New Japan Pro Wrestling he held the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship twice alongside Bobby Fish, and they also won the Super Jr. Tag Tournament in 2014. He’s a decorated champion, and stands out due to his MMA like style focusing on strikes and submissions, while also oozing charisma, just watch him air-guitar his NXT Tag Team Title as he makes his entrance and try not to like the guy.
