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.


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.


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).


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.

In the main event of Wrestle Kingdom 13, Kenny Omega lost the IWGP Heavyweight Championship to Hiroshi Tanahashi, as his reign came to an end at 209 days. This was also his last match for NJPW as he departed from the promotion afterwards.

Ring of Honor

Kenny Omega made his ROH debut in 2008 losing to Delirious in Toronto, Ontario. Omega secured his first victories for ROH when he defeated Austin Aries on two occasions. In 2010, Omega made his final appearance for ROH in almost six years, as he was more committed to his dates in Japan.

In 2016, reports suggested that Omega had become a regular competitor in ROH and in his return match for the promotion he and The Young Bucks successfully defended the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship against ACH, KUSHIDA, and Matt Sydal.

With Hangman Page and The Young Bucks winning the ROH Six-Man World Tag Team Championship, Omega and his fellow Bullet Club stablemates Marty Scurll and Cody Rhodes also defended the titles under the 'Bullet Club Rules'.
