Kenny Omega On The AEW Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch: "This Is Going To Be A More Visceral Experience"

The match is only a few days away

Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega will write the next chapter of their rivalry on Sunday and they will face off in an Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch for the AEW World Championship. 

People have been talking about the match ever since it was announced and Kenny Omega commented on what fans can expect during a recent interview with Sports Illustrated

"I love that anticipation, the waiting. We're taking a piece from history, from Hayabusa, Jinsei Shinzaki, Tarzan Goto, and [Atsushi] Onita, and some of the North Americans that went to FMW - but those were matches you wouldn't see on TV. Back then, you had to trade for the tapes. There was the anticipation, followed by that raw fun when you watched. That's what I want to capture," Omega said.

"There is going to be a certain level of excitement and even anxiety watching this match, a level of curiosity that won't let you look away. This is going to be a more visceral experience, where so many of the senses, ones you don't normally use when watching wrestling, are heightened. When people see this play out in the ring, it's not going to be boring. I want to capture the unknown, all that excitement and anticipation."
