Newly crowned AEW World Champion Kenny Omega was stopped at the airport by a camera crew yesterday and dropped n announcement for the upcoming December 16th episode of Dynamite.
He said that he has seen the criticisms on social media saying that he is overrated and asking what would have happened if he had faced Joey Janela in the first round of the eliminator tournament. Janela was replaced by teammate Sonny Kiss due to Covid.
With that, Omega announced that on Dynamite, he would clear the “blemish” from his record by facing ‘The Bad Boy’ in a No-DQ Eliminator Match. If Janela wins, he will get a title match with Omega. Don Callis will accompany Omega to the ring while Sonny Kiss will be in Janela’s corner.
