Update On How Kenny Omega-NJPW Appearance Happened

Views: 65 | Updated On: | By Jitu Jangir

Kenny Omega is headed back to New Japan Pro Wrestling for Wrestle Kingdom in 2023.

Fightful Select is reporting that the conversations started this summer about Kenny Omega facing Will Ospreay in New Japan Pro Wrestling. During our interview with Omega in June before Forbidden Door, he was in work mode in planting the seeds for a match even before his return ahead of AEW All Out. However, the match wasn't finalized by then.

Rocky Romero, per usual, played a huge role in facilitating the match and helping get it cleared. Romero has been a huge factor in New Japan's global expansion and their positive relationships with numerous companies. At one point, Romero was said to be in frequent contact with AEW Owner Tony Khan to make deals happen.

Those familiar with the situation claim that the deal only got finalized within the past two or three weeks, despite conversations happening over the course of several months. The suspension in relation to Brawl Out didn't kill the talks, even for the time being, but it certainly slowed things down.
