Kenny Omega appeared on Wrestlers on the road ordering Room Service hosted by The Young Bucks. The Cleaner talked about a variety of topics including his stint in NJPW as well as AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura.
Omega had won the IWGP Intercontinental Championship by winning a tournament for the title vacated by Nakamura as he had left for WWE. It was revealed that the original plans were for the current WWE Intercontinental Champion to drop the title to Omega, which did not happen.
Here is what the AEW Superstar had to say about Nakamura:
He was just one of our guys. I don’t ever think like, well, ‘I just don’t want to lose to you before I go to WWE.’ I don’t think it was like that. I think it was a demand, like ‘You have to come now, sorry, if you have a belt.’ That’s how it is.
Kenny Omega went on to become the IWGP Heavyweight Champion in NJPW before he left and joined AEW where he is yet to hold a Championship.
