Originally, Kenny Omega was slated to join forces with Chris Jericho in their quest for the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Unfortunately, he was unable to compete due to diverticulitis. He is clearly better now and has now teased a boxing match with a WWE Superstar.

During a Twitch livestream, Omega entertained the idea of stepping into a boxing ring for a celebrity match, expressing interest in a potential bout with WWE’s Xavier Woods. While he acknowledged the possibility of such an event, Omega emphasized that he wouldn’t want to physically harm Woods, despite their on-screen rivalry.

Instead, he suggested that a boxing match between them could make for an entertaining spectacle. Omega’s comments sparked speculation among fans about the potential for crossover matches between wrestlers in different combat sports arenas.

“Who knows though? Maybe in a Triller card, somewhere in the future, I’ll be celebrity boxing someone. I don’t know. We’ll find out, who knows? So if I was to take a real boxing match, who would you like to see me fight? Any wrestlers you think I might be able to fight in a real boxing match?


“Creed (Xavier Woods). Actually, you know what? Creed, I honestly — it would be a good match. I actually think that’d be a really good match… But in an actual shoot boxing match. I think it’d be a good fight. I think it really would be. That’d be actually really good.

“I wouldn’t wanna hit him though. I hate him, I don’t wanna hit him. I hate his guts but I don’t wanna hit the guy (Omega jokingly said).

“I don’t think he wants to hit me either. I don’t think it’s like that. I don’t think it’s like that.”

Kenny Omega will continue to get haters no matter what and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon. Nevertheless, Omega will likely return to AEW television soon, so it remains to be seen how Omega will be booked upon his return.
