Ever since Kenny Omega won the AEW World Championship and hightailed it to IMPACT Wrestling with Don Callis, fans have gone into fantasy booking mode, wondering where Omega will go next. Well if Michael Bennett has his way, it’ll be to Ring of Honor.
Speaking on the Wrestling With Awareness podcast, Bennett said the following:
“Well, you know, first and foremost, Kenny’s one of the most gifted professional wrestlers I think I’ve ever seen. He’s had some of the greatest matches I’ve ever witnessed with Okada, and I think his work over in New Japan speaks for itself, the things he’s done in The Bullet Club.
“But I personally would love to wrestle him, I’ve never gotten in the ring with him; I would have a blast. I think the world of his talent, and if he’s paying attention, please, please, please come to Ring of Honor!”
Seeing as AEW and NJPW have recently begun a partnership, as well as long standing working relationships between AEW and AAA and NWA, a union with ROH isn’t so farfetched. Doubly so considering ROH and NJPW have enjoyed a working relationship in the past, most notable co-promoting the G1 Supercard show at Madison Square Garden in 2019.
Bennett continued: “I’m like, think of the possibilities. Or maybe once a year we just have a big show where all the wrestling companies – I mean, excluded WWE because I don’t see them ever doing it – but if you think New Japan, AEW, IMPACT, and Ring of Honor, once a year come together for this massive collaborative show of crossing promotions, like it’s so exciting, I get goosebumps thinking about it as a fan and then as a wrestler, I’m like, ‘Oh, that would just be the coolest thing ever!’
“But yeah, I think what AEW and IMPACT are doing right now is really cool, and I think it’s good for professional wrestling. I’m happy to see people put their egos aside for the better of professional wrestling. If we want the sport to evolve, if we want the business to evolve, if we want there to no longer to just be a monarchy at the top of the wrestling industry, we have to be able to do this. We have to expand and we have to start thinking outside the box.”
Bennett recently returned to ROH after several years in WWE.
