– New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) posted the following video hyping IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega’s match with former WWE Champion Chris Jericho at Wrestle Kingdom 12 next month. Check it out here:
– Giant Bomb has an article up in which they talk with Omega and WWE star Xavier Woods about their top ten favorite video games of the year. It turns out Omega and Woods have developed quite the friendly rivalry over the years on the gaming circuit, running into one another at major conventions over the years. Here’s a small excerpt from their exchange in the article:
“Two men met on neutral ground (the rolling hills of The Netherlands) for their yearly meeting where they argue, eat, play video games, almost fight, and talk about their top 10 games of the year… This is their 2017 story.
Kenny: Another year and another top 10! Last year, my good friend Austin and I had so much fun working together, we thought we’d do it again in 2017. I anticipate our lists will be a little different from each other, so this should fuel some very fun and… friendly debate.
Austin: Yes, fun and friendly are the words that I would use for it. I’ll start off by saying that I am honored to be doing another top 10 list with one of the greatest, creative, and most charismatic performers that I have ever met in my life. The one, the only, KENNY OMEGA!
Kenny: And I am glad to introduce a man with the greatest YouTube gaming channel going today, one of the most versatile, intelligent, and talented humans on this Earth… AUSTIN CREED! And you know what…? I’ll say it. I thought you were all just trombones, pancakes, and shenanigans… but heck, you’ve been no slouch in the ring this year either!”
