One-third of AEW World Trios Champion Kenny Omega was recently highly praised by WWE Hall of Famer Jake "The Snake" Roberts. The pro-wrestling legend hailed Omega as one of the best in-ring performers ever.
Kenny Omega recently competed in a highly regarded IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship match against Will Ospreay at NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 17. This match has received significant attention and praise from both fans and critics and is considered a strong candidate for Match of the Year.
Omega, along with his team The Young Bucks, recently regained the AEW World Trios Champions title in a best-of-seven series against Death Triangle. The series was a grueling and intense battle, with both teams putting on an impressive display of athleticism and teamwork. The series ended with The Cleaner and The Bucks coming out victorious, reclaiming the titles they held before.
Kenny Omega recently responded to Jake Roberts calling him one of the greatest of all-time by thanking him on Twitter and calling Roberts a master of psychology. He also joked that Roberts' praise may be why Archer has not targeted him in AEW yet.
“High praise from an absolute master of psychology. (Now I can see why I was mostly safe from @LanceHoyt all these years),” Omega wrote.
