Kevin Nash has a surprising reason for praising Kenny Omega.
Omega is widely seen as one of the greatest talents in wrestling today due to his history of critically acclaimed matches against the likes of Kazuchika Okada, Bryan Danielson, and Will Ospreay.
“Has anybody seen the match that Kenny Omega had with an 8-year-old Japanese girl? I watched it last night, and some of that s–t looked stiff.”
Nash explained that bout showed Omega could have a match with anyone, something that reminds him of his friend and nWo teammate Sean Waltman.
The fact The Best Bout Machine would even agree to it was a big plus in Nash’s book and even added to his reasons for naming the star as his favourite wrestler.
“Kenny reminds me of Sean Waltman — where he can just have a match with anybody. I’ve always been a huge fan of Kenny’s because of the fact that Kenny would even do that match. [It] was another notch in why he’s my favorite [wrestler].”
