Kenny Omega’s in-ring skills made him one of the best pro wrestlers in the world. The Best Bout Machine has a penchant for terrific storytelling inside the squared circle. Omega also wants to remind fans of actual storylines in wrestling once he’s back.
The Cleaner has been absent from AEW television since he lost the AEW World Championship to Adam Page at AEW Full Gear. He is still recuperating from his numerous injuries that required surgeries. Hopefully, our long wait for his return won’t be a long one.
During his downtime, Omega has been active on various platforms. While speaking on Twitch with “CEOGaming“, the former AEW World Champion made it clear he wants to remind fans of actual storylines in his comeback.
“This entire generation is veering towards that one side of things,” Omega said. “… There is less emphasis on character. There is less emphasis on a physical presence. It’s almost, as difficult as it is to have that athletic daredevil in the ring, we have so many gifted and natural athletes that it actually is the easier route.
I think Peak satisfaction for a lot of the fans is when they do get those storylines and the storyline pay-offs. So, maybe some people have forgotten about that, but I would like to have the chance to remind them of that coming back while still hopefully being able to deliver in the ring.”
Kenny Omega still isn’t anywhere close to an in-ring return. This will come in time as he continues grinding away in rehab. It remains to be seen when he will be making his triumphant return to AEW television. We will likely be in for quite a show when that day comes.
