If you are a fan of New Japan Pro Wrestling, then you probably have a very high opinion of their booker Gedo. He certainly deserves it. Gedo’s long-term storytelling and booking have produced some unbelievable wrestling over the last few years.
However, according to Kenny Omega, Gedos’s not entirely responsible for all the stories. Kenny Omega says in an interview with Sports Illustrated he wrote his own stories.
“A lot of people watched my work in New Japan, and they think there is this mysterious figure, this booker, Gedo, and he controls and oversees all and writes all the stories. No. I wrote my own stories. That was me.”
“DDT style doesn’t work in America.”

Kenny goes on to talk about what being the best in the world means to him and how he tells stories:
“For me, through the way I tell my stories and the way I value my fans from around the world, who mean the world to me, people have stuck with me even though I’m not in the main event picture. And it doesn’t matter if I’m not in the main event picture, I am performing my ass off to deliver main event level performances. I understand that you can’t just be a dude that has long singles matches with the same people over and over. You have to challenge yourself in all match types, including TV matches. Guys that think they’re great in the Wild West where they can do whatever the f— they want, sure, they’re great. Not to sound egotistical, but putting on great matches, that’s the easiest part for me. Try to do it when you have to hit a hard eight minutes, and still blow the fans’ socks off.”
You can watch Kenny Omega each and every Wednesday night on Dynamite. Last night, he was part of a very talked about match with Matt Hardy, Chris Jericho, and Sammy Guevara.

No word yet on if there will be a tag team title match at Double or Nothing, but if not, he’d be a great addition to the Casino Ladder Match for a future world title shot.
