Kenny Omega sat down with Dave Meltzer of WON to discuss his most recent match at Full Gear with Jon Moxley. The match received a mixed reception with some believing it was the best hardcore match in a long while others believing it to be too violent. Moxley explained that he wanted to do it as it was different and also revealed that he may never have this type of match again for a while.
He further said that while every spot was planned out with enough safety, he underestimated the pain he would endure when he attempted a phoenix splash on the exposed ring straight on the floor boards. He elaborated further and said:
"It was one of the worst bumps I've ever taken in my life. I'm telling you, a lot of people, said that 'Whatever...the ring is got a spring in it. It's no different than bumping on the mat itself.' No, it was terrible! I think when the mat folded over...that's where my hands were...So I couldn't quite get my hands to brace my fall...pretty much...my face came and broke all of it."
It's quite obvious that Omega wanted this match to be different, but he also said further that this type of match will not be done again and he will never attempt a move like that on an exposed ring.
Omega will be in action against PAC on next's week AEW Dynamite so it should be interesting to see how his body is holding up once he returns to action.Published 23 Nov 2019, 21:21 IST
