Kenny Omega Speech Left Some AEW Stars ‘Upset’ After Talent Meeting

Kenny Omega Speech Left Some AEW Stars ‘Upset’ After Talent Meeting AEW

Kenny Omega has reportedly been in the bad books of some AEW stars for some comments he made during a recent talent meeting.

According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, following a talent meeting which took place a few weeks ago, Omega decided to add a few comments of his own, which didn’t please everyone.

According to the report, Omega said he wouldn’t have hired eight out of ten people in the room, which was taken by many as a joke, but not by everyone.

The report reads:

Also surfacing was a story that at the company meeting called several weeks back that the part of the speech by Omega that was described as a pep talk and tough love but that some were irked by a line he said that eight out of ten of the people there he wouldn’t have hired.

He absolutely said the line. One version is that it was very clear when he said it he was being comedic, that he was looking at Will Ospreay when he said it, then said that he was just messing with Ospreay. Many laughed about it. Others took it as serious and there were those upset about it. Several told us it was something totally misinterpreted and taken out of context but others didn’t like it.

Given everything going on in AEW right now, and the fact that Kenny as well as many others are currently suspended, maybe everyone just needs to be a bit nicer to each other in general.
