Former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega got emotional after Dynamite went off the air after he competed in front of his hometown crowd in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
On Dynamite, two of Winnipeg’s finest exports did battle as Omega led The Elite into a match with The Jericho Appreciation Society – led by Chris Jericho – and The House of Black for the AEW Trios Championship. When all was said and done, The House of Black was able to escape with their title but as Kenny Omega told the fans in attendance after the show went off the air, for him the night was about more than wins and losses:
“I suppose if there’s one thing that tonight has taught me, it’s to never forget where you came from. Family is family, home is where the heart is. You can always choose your friends. One lesson I’ve learned as well, I’ve supposed it’s that if you’ve loved before, it’s possible to possibly love again. Today, wow. What a success. Everything you see before you, this was nothing but a pipe dream. I was happy wrestling [names several places in Canada], Chalmers Rec Centre.
“Then of course we have this little shindig. Stop me if you’ve heard this before. I think it was from a famous movie or something. If you build it, they will come. Boy, oh boy, did you guys come down for a show tonight. Though I am not a psychic, I do not have ESP, I have ESPN, by the looks of the crowd tonight, my guess is that we’ll be back. I would love to say the famous line. However, we still have more wrestling for each and every one of you.
“So that ticket that you purchased, it’s still good for one more hour of professional wrestling, so please stick around for a great episode of Rampage. It’s coming up for you next. In case you have a curfew, a bed time, anything like that, yeah, sure, I guess I’ll say the line. So for now, I must bid you adieu, so goodbye everyone, mwah [blows kiss] and goodnight. Bang [makes finger gun gesture].”
Kenny Omega recently discussed the speculation linking him with a future move to WWE and says he tries to make decisions based on what his heart tells him.
