• More On Kenny Omega’s Recent Comments Which Upset AEW Wrestlers
Prior to the August 24th episode of AEW Dynamite, a mandatory meeting was held for all the AEW wrestlers.
PWInsider reported the following about AEW EVP Kenny Omega’s comments at that meeting:
“Kenny Omega spoke and was the harshest towards the locker room in what we are told by some came off as ‘tough love’ and by others as really ‘heavy-handed’.
Some saw this as Omega trying to light a fire under the roster and others felt differently.”
Later on, Voices Of Wrestling claimed that Omega said the following during this meeting:
“I wouldn’t have even hired 80% of you.”
The Wrestling Observer then noted the following about Omega’s line:
“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.”
In an update, Cultaholic is now reporting the following about Omega’s comments:
“Omega made the 8 out of 10 people comment before he turned to Will Ospreay and said the NJPW star didn’t even work in AEW yet he could wrestle circles around everyone in the room.
Omega’s comments were also viewed as him expressing his unhappiness with what the company had turned into and him voicing his opinion about those who don’t respect AEW or Tony Khan.”
