So, without any further ado, here is our list of 5 best Kenny Omega matches that you must watch:
#5 Kenny Omega vs Kota Ibushi, DDT Budokan 2012 – Not Rated
This is one of those obscure classics that Kenny Omega has been a part of. During his run with DDT – another Japanese promotion – Omega teamed with a wrestler by the name of Kota Ibushi and the pair were called The Golden Lovers. They were very good and the fastest of friends.
In 2012, though, they squared off in one of the best matches in DDT history and the promotion’s Match of the Year for 2012. They put on an instant classic and it would be one to mark them forever as friends and rivals. DDT’s stuff isn’t quite as mainstream as New Japan, so this match wasn’t even rated by Dave Meltzer.
Regardless of that, though, this is one Omega’s finest matches and is a must watch for anyone who claims to be a fan of The Cleaner.
