There’s plenty of media coverage going in to this weekend’s AEW Revolution, which is headlined by the Kenny Omega vs Jon Moxley Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch.
Earlier today we reported on an insight from Mox, and now it’s ‘The Cleaner’ who’s talking about the match.
In an interview with The New York Post, Omega discussed that every week is time to raise the bar with match types like this.
I feel like every week is always the right moment to bring something new to the table, and that’s kind of why I tried with the weeks leading up to this match, to the pay-per-view, that there has been a lot of surprises, things you didn’t expect to see on our programing, things you didn’t expect to see in professional wrestling and this is sort of just the cherry on the sundae.
After seeing Don Callis, the Good Brothers (Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows) from Impact, Kenta, there’s no better way in my mind to blow everything out of the water by just blowing each other up. That’s how we’re ending this thing.
He may be focused on this match, but given the blossoming relationship with NJPW many are talking about a possible match they’d like to see happen.
Omega talked about the potential for him to face Kota Ibushi, and how everything could come full circle for them to face either in an AEW ring.
I always felt like even when we parted ways and I kind of came over to America to attempt to try this thing out with AEW, and Ibushi really wanted to still accomplish what he has always dreamed of during in Japan, I sort of felt that things once again at some point would come full circle. I knew we were both winding down in the pursuit of our dreams in wrestling and we were breaking ourselves essentially. We were worried we wouldn’t get back around to that point because it would be too broken to do it.
But he’s done what he’s always wanted to do and I’m doing something I never thought I’d be doing right now, but it’s put us both in a position where it’s perhaps possible. It’s well within the realm of possibility if the world was open to some degree to these type of things. It’s not even an issue of if the companies are open to it.
