Kenny Omega finally returns to New Japan Pro-Wrestling

Kenny Omega shocked the professional wrestling world early Sunday morning by announcing that he would be returning to New Japan Pro-Wrestling for Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4 in Toyko. Omega interrupted Will Ospreay’s celebration after the leader of the United Empire successfully won his IWGP United States Championship at the Historic X-Over event on Saturday night. He cut a promo about how Ospreay and every other non-Japanese star had failed to carry on the legacy “The Cleaner” had built in his years with the promotion and proclaimed that he would be back one last time. come to save it.

Ospreay responded in the ring by saying as he sees it, Omega left and he stayed to help carry the company through the rigors of the pandemic. The two will now compete for the US Championship, a title Omega first won in July 2017 when it was first introduced.

Omega and Ospreay have been trading insults on social media, in promos and even in media interviews for years. The two finally shared the ring in AEW in August when The Elite and United Empire met in the semifinals of the AEW World Trios Championship tournament. Despite Omega being still fresh from his return from injuries, he and The Bucks managed to beat Ospreay and Aussie Open.

“A guy like Will, who’s good at moves and has a list of 20 very forgettable five-star matches. [laughs] I’m going a little too fast for Will. Will is great. I don’t want to say anything bad about Will. Here’s the thing, if we’re being completely honest with each other, I believe with the current rating system, and how things are viewed, I believe Will has earned every last one of those five star performances he’s had,” Omega told competitive earlier this year. “I’m digging myself into a hole here, Will is there and Will is great. I’m happy to see him in a big game against Orange Cassidy. I’m just saying I think New Japan made the right choice by going with Jay White. He was the star of the two is all I’m saying.”

Additionally, Omega and The Bucks returned to action for AEW on Saturday night by challenging Death Triangle to the AEW World Trios Championships at Full equipment. The three fell short, but then AEW announced that the six men would compete in a best-of-seven series, which will continue this week in Dynamite.
