It looks like HBO is gearing up for a documentary on New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) star Kenny Omega. HBO recently co-produced and aired a documentary on WWE Hall Of Famer Andre The Giant; along with WWE, JMH Films and Ringer Films.
Canadian musician Joseph Shabson joined the “Kreative Kontrol” podcast to divulge the news. He noted he recently scored music for the documentary and focused on a wrestler named Kenny Omega:
“I just finished a documentary about a wrestler. That’s going to be coming out on HBO in the New Year, which is going to be really exciting.
“It’s a wrestler named Kenny Omega. He’s a wrestler from Winnipeg, but went to Japan and formed this tag team called the Golden Lovers, which was sort of like the first ever queer storyline in wrestling. He’s a pretty incredible dude; I was really happy with scoring that.”
