Kenny Omega – Conquering the West

Omega defended his title successfully up until July when he would lose it  against Kushida at Dominion 7.5. The following September, at Destruction  in Okayama, Omega would regain the title.

Leading up to Wrestle Kingdom 12, which would take place at the start of  2018, Jericho hyped his impending debut, making it clear that he was  after Omega.

Omega’s final angle in NJPW involved Hiroshi Tanahashi, who won the 2018  G1 Climax, earning an IWGP Heavyweight Championship at Wrestle Kingdom  13 the following year.

Coming out to a heavy metal cover of “Hopes and Dreams / Save the World”  from the video game Undertale, Omega’s encounter with Tanahashi felt  like a rising hero challenging the final boss.

Despite Omega’s valiant efforts, Tanahashi would defeat him, claiming the aforementioned championship in the process.

Following Wrestle Kingdom 13, Omega took another absence from NJPW. His fate, at that point, was anyone’s guess.

At the AEW Double or Nothing announcement party earlier  this month, Omega revealed that he signed a four-year deal with the  promotion.
