Kenny Omega will wrestle his inaugural televised match in his hometown of Winnipeg on this week’s episode of Dynamite, and the former AEW World Champion recently spoke with The Winnipeg Free Press about Dynamite’s arrival in the city.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On wrestling in Winnipeg as a teenager: “I was elated, unbelievably excited to look in my piggy bank after a month’s worth of (wrestling), which at that time was two shows a week, and a lot of those were ladder matches, hardcore matches, and all sorts of things, and see that I had twenty dollars… It didn’t even work out to five dollars a match. [laughs]}
On having his first televised match in his hometown: “When AEW became a thing, we always thought ‘Boy, wouldn’t it be cool if this really was an international wrestling product.’ And not only international by how you consume it via television or internet, but I really wanted to do live shows all around the world. For one of our first international shows, and one of our first Canadian shows, to be in my hometown is a really cool thing and I’m sure Chris [Jericho] has a very similar feeling towards it.”
