Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay are considered two of the very best in the business. Both men carved out similar paths for themselves to become huge names in the business. After a lot of anticipation, the two will finally have a match very soon.
A few months ago, Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks faced off against The United Empire in the semi-finals of the trios tournament. After a solid match, it was The Elite who came out on top.
Ospreay and Omega faced each other a good bit during the match. However, fans simply wanted Omega and Ospreay to compete in a singles match. Ospreay defended his IWGP United States Championship at NJPW x STARDOM Historic X-Over by defeating Shota Umino.
After the matchup, the lights went down and Kenny Omega appeared on the screen. Omega said Ospreay was meant to replace him when he left in 2019, but he failed and is an Omega knock off.
During the NJPW event, a Kenny Omega promo video started playing. He then challenged Will Ospreay to a match at Wrestle Kingdom on January 4th. Ospreay immediately accepted the challenge, and now this huge match is set.
