Kenny Omega has spoken out in a new interview and shared his candid thoughts on his feelings about missing AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door.
Kenny Omega has spoken out in a new interview with Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful where he shared his candid thoughts on missing out on the upcoming inaugural All Elite Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling crossover pay-per-view, Forbidden Door.
Omega speaks of both his disappointment and satisfaction with missing the inaugural crossover and possibly throwing a hint of shade along the way.
Saying first that his time with NJPW was “probably arguably the most important phase of my career”, Omega went on to describe that he is able to feel happy about the event while not being able to physically take part because while “perhaps not all of us,” had a harmonious wrestling world in mind in the founding of AEW, that vision was an important one to Omega himself.
“I am able to sit back and kind of watch with a smile on my face because this was always I sort of the hopeful, I don’t want to say endgame, but this was always the hopeful pitstop into what the mission statement of what AEW always was.
“We always just wanted to make wrestling a friendly place for everyone, perhaps not all of us, but that was always one of the things that were most important to me. I wanted to see a world where we were working friendly with New Japan and I was hoping that that was something that would happen from day one, and here we are.
“We’re working with New Japan, we’re working with DDT, we’re working with Tokyo Joshi, we’re working with AAA, we’re working with Ring of Honor, now that Tony has purchased Ring of Honor. We’re working with all of these entities and promotions who may not even want to work with each other, yet we are creating sort of this forum for everyone to wrestle and work peacefully and I think it’s really cool and even though I can’t physically take part in it I’m still happy and I’m still extremely satisfied that we could get to this point because this was always what we wanted to do with AEW as an idea for a company.”
