Kenny Omega is considered one of the best professional wrestles on the planet right now, for numerous reasons. He has accomplished a lot in his pro wrestling career so far and that includes his current run in AEW. Now it appears he cut a solid promo after AEW Dynamite went off the air.
The Elite have been battling it out with The Blackpool Combat Club for the past few months now, as they have been beating each other up on every occasion no matter what.
The Elite squared off against The Blackpool Combat in a Blood & Guts match. It was truly a bloody war where each side beat each other to a bloody pulp. In the end, The Elite won the match.
As transcribed by PWinsider, after AEW Dynamite went off the air, the two factions shook hands as Kenny Omega cut a promo about respect between the two teams and made it clear that the feud between the two is over.
“I’m a lover, not a fighter. You guys don’t know by now, I’m a lover, not a fighter. There’s one thing I learned throughout this rivalry of ours. When push comes to shove, you guys are as tough as they come. You taught us what it means to not only be a professional wrestler, but to be a wrestler. That’s just for real, guys, come on, put it up. I’ve bled, I’ve sweat, I’ve cried, I’ve been maimed, I’ve got scars that will never heal. But a wise man once said, ‘I can do this all day.’
If you don’t want this to end here, we can keep this thing going. But I think I speak on behalf of all of this. The Golden Elite respects you. We respect this business. We respect the blood you’ve poured. We respect these fans that paid a ticket to see blood and guts. And if you guys want, I’ll shorten my career. I’ll shorten my life to keep this fight alive, but I’m willing to stick my hand out and shake yours. If you guys wanna let bygones be bygones, because love you or freaking hate you, Moxley, love you or hate you, Claudio, love you or hate your ugly ass [to Wheeler Yuta], I respect each and every one of you.
I even respect the guy that couldn’t make it. Bryan Danielson, who broke his arm for this company, who broke his arm for this business. I respect Ibushi, who flew for over 24 hours to make it here.
I Can’t. I can’t let that effort be in vain. If you guys want to keep doing it, so help me, God, I’ll keep doing it, but I’m gonna do it with a newfound respect for each and every one of you. But I’m gonna stick my hand out justice once, just once as a sign of respect, because gosh darn it, I respect the hell outta you guys.
I’m not gonna lie, I never expect a scene like this to happen ever again. But one thing I do respect is that I will see Ibushi again here in an AEW ring and as long as I am an active performer in professional wrestling, I’m gonna go wherever these guys [points to Young Bucks] go.”
We will have to wait and see what AEW will have planned for both factions, now that their feud seems to be over. Regardless, their feud will go down as one of AEW’s best in a long time.
