AEW World Champion Kenny Omega’s in-ring skills need no introductions as he is touted as the best bout machine for good reason. His AEW World title reign has been excellent for many fans as he has competed in several high profile matches. It seems Jim Cornette doesn’t think a top star wants to face Omega.
Kenny Omega made a name for himself with his incredible matches with top pro wrestlers such as Kazuchika Okada and Hiroshi Tanahashi in NJPW. Omega is regarded as one of the all time-greats by many fans and it is not difficult to understand why.
Omega has also competed against several top stars in AEW as well, with his match against Bryan Danielson being heralded as one of the best matches in recent memory.
While speaking on his Drive-Thru podcast, Jim Cornette talked about CM Punk possibly facing off against Kenny Omega. Cornette claimed that CM Punk is unlikely to put up with Kenny Omega’s foolishness.
”Danielson and Kenny Omega will be a better match because I am not sure if Punk would probably want to put up with a lot of Kenny Omega’s foolishness. And I think Kenny Omega is aware of that. So he is probably not anxious to work with Punk and have to show people that he does not know how to actually have a real match. He just knows how to, you know, do the train chimp stuff.”
CM Punk had previously stated that he would love to work with Kenny Omega. However, he also made it clear that he isn’t in any hurry to face Omega either. We will have to wait and see when the two will finally square off against each other.
