Kenny Omega is All In and he won’t be alone.
Kenny Omega’s role at All In had been the subject of much speculation for some time with original reports suggesting he’d be facing off once again with Will Ospreay inside Wembley Stadium. That is not the plan, however, with Ospreay having his sights set on someone else for the biggest show in European wrestling history.
Fans knew Kenny Omega would not be reprising his trios team with The Young Bucks in London, England after Matt and Nick Jackson were challenged to a rubber match by FTR for the AEW Tag Team Championship. Given FTR’s own history with The Bucks and their relationship with CM Punk, all eyes are sure to be on what could be a combustible bout.
Kenny Omega sat down with Jim Ross in a pre-recorded interview on Dynamite where his All In plans were set to become clearer. Omega discussed his long history with Don Callis before Callis turned up to goad the former AEW World Champion. Jay White and Juice Robinson then laid out Omega with a sneak attack and were joined by Callis’ protege Konosuke Takeshita.
Kenny Omega can still count on his friends
It was then left to Hangman Adam Page to reveal in another pre-recorded interview – that was famously not recorded at Collision in Greensboro – that Omega had two friends in Page and Kota Ibushi and together at All In they’d face the team of White, Robinson, and Takeshita.
