From anyone who has watched Kenny Omega and his matches, promos and in general, his career. They have seen what he is actually capable of doing from making a match into a match to remember.
Starting off in independent companies such as PCW, PWS, ROH, DDT, JAPW and PWG, Omega has practiced and perfected his craft and proven that even an Otaku gamer gimmick like his can be put into a great thing for a show.
After being released by the WWE in 2006, Omega would embark on a mission to prove all the naysayers wrong, by getting more noticed in the Indy scenes which he did to later on get an opportunity to wrestle for New Japan Pro Wrestling.
In his first match he teamed with long time friend, Kota Ibushi.
They faced off against a legendary team known as No Respect which consisted of Gedo and Jedo. Being victorious in the match, they would later win the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Titles, only to lose them a few months later and stop teaming afterwards due to Omega turning Heel and joining the gajiin stable, Bullet Club.
In Omega’s first PPV singles match in NJPW at Wrestle Kingdom 9.
He defeated another legendary Japanese wrestler known as Rysuke Taguchi for the IWGP Jr, Heavyweight Championship. which he would hold for a few months before losing and regaining it from Kushida only to lose it a year after his huge singles win at Wrestle Kingdom 10.
The day after Omega’s loss,
He would attack and fire Bullet Club’s leader, AJ Styles who was leaving NJPW to sign with the WWE. Omega would announce he was taking over as the new leader of Bullet Club, and going from a Jr. Heavyweight to a Heavyweight wrestler to compete for many more championship titles and takeover NJPW.
In Omega’s first PPV now as a Heavyweight wrestler, he defeated the “Ace” of NJPW, Hiroshi Tanahashi for the vacant Intercontinental Championship in a huge main event that would be the start of Omega’s rise to the top.
Months later, Omega lost the Intercontinental Championship and decided to instead compete in the 26th annual G1 Climax tournament which is a 2 week event where the A block with the most wins faces the B block and the winner gets a IWGP Heavyweight or NEVER Openweight Championship match in the main event at Wrestle Kingdom 11.
After a long and grueling 2 weeks, Omega would make it to the finals facing off against Hirooki Goto and defeating him to not only win the G1 but to be the first gajiin to do so.
After 5 months, Omega had already set the challenge to face off against reigning and defending IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Kazuchika Okada in what would be leader vs leader,
Bullet Club VS Chaos.
Throughout the whole match,
You can tell that no matter what anyone has said bad about Omega, they were all wrong,
because he proved that someone who people said would never make it, can make it and compete in the main event at Wrestle Kingdom 11, at the Tokyo Dome. and mark the first ever 6 star match in Pro Wrestling history.
Omega is still young, he can still compete in more huge matches.
If he still stays with NJPW next year or if he decides to go to WWE,Everyone knows that he can and will prove the naysayers wrong all the time, with every match he’s in and that is an already proven promise.
