Kenny Omega Names 80s Wrestlers He Idolized During Childhood



During a recent Twitch livestream, former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega named his favorite wrestlers growing up, which include The Ultimate Warrior and Rick Rude.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On why Curt Hennig made him think differently about singles wrestling: “When I first started to kind of become like a ‘workrate’ guy where I really enjoyed more of what I saw in the ring than the storyline type stuff, he was my first ever ‘oh man this is what wrestling looks like when I’m really into a match.’ Not that I wasn’t into the matches before, I was into them in a different way.”

On what tag teams he enjoyed: “I loved the Legion of Doom, but my actual favorite tag team was The Rockers … and second place was the Hart Foundation easily.”
