Interviewing Kenny Omega was seriously too sweet. I remember the first time I heard of Omega — a few wrestling friends kept mentioning his name, and it wasn’t long until I was watching match after match of his and was absolutely in awe of his in-ring ability and hilarious yet charismatic mic skills. With that said, I’ve become a huge fan, so you can only imagine my excitement when I locked down an AMBY interview with the world’s hottest independent wrestler.
During the latest Ring of Honor: War of the Worlds stop through Toronto, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Omega ahead of The Elite’s amazingly entertaining main event match. Dive into our conversation (and one of my favourite AMBY interviews to date) as we discuss wanting to make an album, speaking Japanese for years, spray tan parties with The Young Bucks, collecting rare video games, and shocking falls.
