Kenny Omega On The All Out Fight – “Let It Go”

Kenny Omega

Kenny Omega has urged people to “let it go” about the backstage fight at All Out and says there are some things in regard to it that will never be spoken of.

By the time all was said and done from the All Out pay-per-view in early September, chaos reigned in AEW. CM Punk blasted several of his colleagues at the post-show media scrum, including The Young Bucks. This led to The Bucks allegedly confronting Punk in his locker room where a physical fight is said to have taken place. Everyone involved in the physicality including Kenny Omega and company producer Ace Steel was suspended while an investigation took place into what exactly happened.

As of Full Gear, The Elite trio of Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks are back in AEW while the future of CM Punk remains uncertain and Steel is believed to have been fired with suggestions that he bit Omega during the altercation.

None of the parties involved have discussed what exactly happened with rumour and innuendo filling that vacuum somewhat instead. Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Kenny Omega explained that people will have to just stop wondering and said that the situation can’t be discussed by those involved:

“There are things no one can talk about, so I’d encourage people to let it go. It doesn’t change that we want a team effort in AEW. I don’t even mean implicitly myself and my opponent. It also means the referee, the fans, the people who set up the ring, everyone–even a technical error can ruin the memory of a match. I can refer back to the exploding barbed wire death match. So I encourage people to move away from it because there is no information to be released. Though I cannot talk about it, I do want the fans to know I still want the best for pro wrestling.”

“[…] This isn’t Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks against CM Punk. It is people trying to show off their craft. You can boo Kenny Omega, or the Young Bucks, or CM Punk, but I hope people don’t forget we’re human beings struggling to show our art.”

Kenny Omega will be in action on Dynamite in Chicago – Punk’s hometown – as he teams with The Young Bucks in match two of The Elite’s best-of-seven series with Death Triangle.
