The previous couple of days have actually seen the web wrestling neighborhood slam Tony Khan for reserving Kenny Omega to deal with El Hijo Del Vikingo in a self-proclaimed “dream match,” regardless of Vikingo being a rather odd entity amongst traditional wrestling fans and no buil-up to the match.
Vikingo is routinely included in AAA, and the promo’s booker Konnan, in a current interview with MuscleManMalcolm, shared some information concerning Vikingo and his trick.
” First of all, he has a trick. He’s a Viking. He’s not simply some wrestler? That’s really essential to me to have a character. Vikingo has a trick. He’s a Viking. He’s charming. I ‘d rather have an excellent character than an excellent wrestler, due to the fact that there are a million great wrestlers, specifically now. Not everyone has a character that links and is over? He’s got a great character.”
With Mount Rushmore being a rather popular term and metric in expert wrestling nowadays, Konnan called 5 males – – Ricochet, Will Ospreay, Vikingo, Rey Fenix and Komander on his list of modern-day highflyers.
” If I needed to choose my contemporary Mount Rushmore leaflets today, it would certainly be Ricochet. Despite the fact that you ‘d never ever understand that viewing him in WWE, Ricochet is unbelievable, brother. I handled him in Lucha Underground. A great deal of times, I needed to inform him, ‘Dude, you’re operating at 50%. Program them what you got, guy. You’re the most unbelievable wrestler worldwide. Program them what you got.’ He’s unbelievable. I would state right now, [ his Mount Rushmore] would be Ricochet, Will Ospreay, Vikingo, and after that one-two, due to the fact that they’re really various [Rey] Fenix and Komander. All 3 of them are from AAA, from Mexico. I’m really happy that we’re exporting skill like we did back in the day.”
Kenny Omega is set to deal with El Hijo Del Vikingo tonight on AEW Dynamite at 8/7c on TBS.
