Kenny Omega


ABOUT
ABOUT

Kenny Omega is regarded by many as the greatest professional wrestler in the world. Kenny Omega

started out as an ice hockey goalie, but soon discovered that his future lay inside the ring.

WWE

After a run in Premier Championship Wrestling, Kenny Omega signed with WWE where he wrestled

for Deep South Wrestling. However, he has been very critical of his time in the company, especially

of Bill Demott and Jodi Hamilton. He realized that his fortunes lay outside WWE and has never

looked back since. Kenny Omega was also not a fan of the trainer, Bob Holly.

DDT

Kenny Omega was transfixed with the Japanese Wrestling circuit, especially with professional

wrestler Kota Ibushi, when he saw him perform. Kenny Omega would then fly to the DDT promotion

and form a tag team called The Golden Lovers with Ibushi, that lasts to this day. During this time he

also wrestled for ROH and PWG. He would stay with the promotion till 2014, before moving on to

New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW).

NJPW

While Kenny Omega had previous runs with NJPW, it was when he joined the Bullet Club that his

fame rose to absolute new heights. Omega would become the leader of the group after the

departure of AJ Styles. Kenny Omega became the first non-Japanese wrestler to win the G1 Climax

Block in 2016 and went on to put on a series of classics against IWGP Heavyweight Champion-

Kazuchika Okada. At Dominion 6.9, Kenny Omega defeated Okada to become the first Canadian

wrestler to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

During this period, Kenny Omega branched off from the Bullet Club to form a group called The Elite,

to resolve the civil war that existed within this group. In addition to Kenny Omega, this group also

consists of The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, Adam Page, and ‘The Villain’ Marty Scurll.
