• “Bro save your own” – Will Ospreay On Kenny Omega Saying He’s Coming To Save NJPW
At yesterday’s NJPW x STARDOM Historic X-Over event, former IWGP Heavyweight Champion and current AEW wrestler Kenny Omega appeared via video.
Omega appeared on the screen after Will Ospreay defeated Shota Umino to retain the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship.
Kenny then challenged Ospreay for the US Title (a Title that he has held before) at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4th 2023.
Omega cut a promo in Japanese, where he talked about how Ospreay was used as his replacement in NJPW after he left, but the crowds at shows have gotten smaller ever since and people bring up the pandemic as an excuse.
Kenny ended his promo by saying that he’s coming to save NJPW.

Ospreay took a shot at Omega by poking fun at the AEW All Out 2022 backstage fight with the following tweet:
“Man said ‘I’ve come to save the company’
Bro save your own 😂”
This is going to be Omega’s 1st match in New Japan Pro Wrestling in 4 years. His last NJPW match took place in January 2019 (before the launch of AEW), where he lost the IWGP Heavyweight Title to Hiroshi Tanahashi at Wrestle Kingdom 13.
Omega also returned to AEW programming at Saturday’s Full Gear 2022 pay-per-view, where he and The Young Bucks lost to Death Triangle in the AEW Trios World Championship match after Rey Fenix hit Omega with Pac’s hammer.
