Report: Kenny Omega Stopped Going Into Japan, Tension With New Japan?


A new report from Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter sheds some light on Kenny Omega having trouble when trying to get into Japan to work for DDT.

Omega was the face of NJPW for quite some. However, with Omega leaving NJPW to form All Elite Wrestling, tensions have risen between New Japan and The Elite trio of Kenny and The Bucks.

“When Kenny Omega went to Japan for the DDT show, he was stopped going into the country. It’s the third time this has happened since he left New Japan. Something happened where there was an attempt to get him banned from going to Japan for ten years. He did get in, like he has every time, and worked the show. But he was very bitter about New Japan and Nick Jackson made a cryptic tweet about New Japan. Suffice to say feelings are very bad right now with them, even though Jericho is going to the Tokyo Dome since he has a separate deal. Nothing has been said regarding Jon Moxley at the Tokyo Dome but there are still two months to go.”

Initially, it was believed that Omega, like Jericho, also had a deal that would allow him to work dates for New Japan, but with each new development, it looks more and more like that ship has sailed.
