AEW Superstar Kenny Omega took to Twitter on Tuesday, commenting on a story of Kota Ibushi’s backstage encounter with Vince McMahon. As the story goes, Ibushi was a participant in the Cruiserweight Classic and gave a “high five” to Vince McMahon as he didn’t know who he was. That reportedly made WWE staff members “really upset.”
For what it’s worth, WWE offered Ibushi a full-time deal but he rejected it and signed full-time with NJPW last year.
That story is true by the way. https://t.co/01Tz8XfMHQ

Hard to believe, but yeah, some of the most talented wrestlers in the world aren’t constantly walking on eggshells and scared shitless of their boss.
