Omega Talks His Goal With Moxley Match, Third Match Possible

Kenny Omega is recognized as one of the greatest, if not the greatest athlete in all of pro wrestling today. Kenny Omega is a multi-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion and the current AAA Mega Champion.

Omega has a massive opportunity to become the AEW World Champion when he faces the AEW World Champion Jon Moxley during tonight’s “Winter Is Coming” episode of Dynamite.

Their match during tonight’s episode of Dynamite will be the second match they have had in AEW as the first match took place at last year’s Full Gear PPV event when they fought in a Lights Out Match.

While speaking with Sports Illustrated, “The Cleaner” Kenny Omega discussed what his goals are in his AEW World Title Match against Jon Moxley.

This is what Kenny Omega said:

“My goal is to put a pay per view caliber match on TV next week.” “On the same token, I want another pay per view match with Moxley in the future. I don’t want to write an entire book in one match, but I hope this is a great chapter.”

Omega then talked about not comparing AEW with NJPW, because he doesn’t think it is fair and he is in AEW right now because he wanted a new challenge. He then talked about not trying to create a situation or an environment where he was competing with the NJPW version of Kenny Omega, because he’s never in competition with himself.

Omega also talked about not trying to structure things the way he did with Okada and not trying to find a new Okada with Moxley as Moxley has how own qualities and Jon Moxley and Okada are so different.

This is what Kenny Omega said:

“I’m never in competition with myself, and I’m never trying to compare someone who is very unique like Moxley to another competitor that is also very unique. I’m not going to compare building to building, I’m not going to compare fan base to fan base.

I don’t think that’s fair. For me, the reason I’m in AEW right now is because I wanted a new challenge. What I wasn’t trying to do was create an environment or a situation where I was competing with the New Japan Kenny Omega. I’m not trying to structure things the way I would structure with Okada. I’m not trying to find a new Okada, Moxley has his own qualities that make him special. Stylistically, they are so different.”

Kenny Omega then talked about when fighting Kazuchika Okada, he didn’t think there would be a second, third of fourth match down the road. Unlike in AEW, even during his first match against Moxley, which was the Lights Out Match at last year’s Full Gear, he knew that there would be another match down the road, possibly even an Omega-Moxley III.

This is what Kenny Omega said:

“When I went to the Okada match at the Tokyo Dome, for me, it was all or nothing. I didn’t think there would be an Okada-Omega II or III or IV. I thought that was my only chance on a stage like that. In AEW, I knew there, even during my ‘Lights Out’ match against Moxley last year [at Full Gear], that there would be another match down the road.

I would love for this story to lend itself to the other chapters in the series. Regardless of how this match goes, we’re committed to this project. There probably is going to be an Omega-Moxley III somewhere down the road.”
