Future AEW Plans For Kenny Omega Seemingly Revealed AEW

Don Callis has potentially revealed future plans for a Kenny Omega vs Konosuke Takeshita match in AEW.

Takeshita and Omega are currently at odds, with Takeshita attacking Omega at Double or Nothing 2023, during the Elite vs Blackpool Combat Club Anarchy in the Arena match.

Speaking on Talk is Jericho, the Japanese star revealed that Kenny Omega previously acted as his mentor when he was rising up in DDT Pro.

Explaining how his relationship with Omega has changed, Takeshita said:

“So Kenny Omega was in DDT Pro-Wrestling about 10 years ago. So, he was my mentor in DDT. Always after the match, many advice and yeah, he said, ‘You can be big star, big wrestler.’

“So, I believed that his advice. So, I think I can become, now, a big step, big step… But, he was not DDT wrestler. He was New Japan then AEW.

“Little, I was sad. I thought always, he’s mentor, my mentor.

“So then, I was growing up always in DDT in 10 years but, I thought his growing up stopped so okay, DDT, New Japan, AEW, what are you doing now?…

“So I thought, now, I can beat him anytime.”

Commenting on a potential singles match between Omega and Takeshita, the rising star’s manager Don Callis stated:

“I think perhaps that when Takeshita finally has a match with Kenny (Omega) and we’re gonna destroy Kenny, I think maybe we have the drummer again to drum him down the ring.

“I think it’s also a mind game because Kenny thinks because he’s bilingual in Japan that he’s something special in Japan.

“The reality is-is that in Japan, Takeshita is much more revered than Kenny Omega. So I would actually love to have that match in Japan.

“But I really wanna have it here in AEW so the fans here who have been sold a billion goods, the same fans who won’t let me tell the story that you’ve (Chris Jericho) allowed me to tell, that they can see first-hand.

“They won’t like it but they’re gonna say, Don Callis was right all along.

Omega last wrestled at AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door 2023, dropping his IWGP US Championship to Will Ospreay in a match which many fans have argued was the best of the year so far.
