Kota Ibushi Comments On Possibly Teaming With Kenny Omega Again


In a recent interview with Dark Puroresu Flowsion, Kota Ibushi touched on a multitude of topics. Among those, he spoke about possibly reuniting his popular tag team, the Golden Lovers, along with IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega.

Here’s what Kota Ibushi had to say:


I guess it depends on the current unstable WWE situation and other factors regarding that, but not while Kenny Omega is currently continuing to rise in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Will he drop the belt and go to AEW or where? Neither he nor I know. One thing I do know is that (1) I will be back. (2) How much I can move. (3) I don’t know if it will be this year, but I have a picture of it in my mind in the near future as much as possible. Actually. So I hope GL [Golden Lover] fans will wait for me. That’s about all I can say. Should Kenny continue to appear for New Japan once he loses the belt, then I don’t think we’re going to be able to wrestle together. However, he should be under a contract with AEW that [gives him more] freedom. So I think, depending on when his timing and my timing overlap, then there is a possibility that we will tag. There are still more problems with that, and I don’t want to tag with him if it’s not the right] situation to do so. Because the tag team with him is more special to me than anything. I think it will finally take shape once the time when we should wrestle [together], the conditions under which we should wrestle, our respective [physical] conditions, all of that has come together.

Kota Ibushi and Kenny Omega haven’t teamed together since late 2018, when they faced Hiroshi Tanahashi and Will Ospreay in a winning effort at a NJPW event leading up to Wrestle Kingdom 13. Fans have been clamoring for a reunion ever since, and with Omega’s recent return to New Japan, it seems like a distinct possibility.
