Kenny Omega releases first statement following the events in Sapporo



After dropping his IWGP US Championship to ‘Switchblade’ Jay White over the weekend in Sapporo, Kenny Omega went through an emotional rollercoaster. Within moments, he would be ousted from Bullet Club—a faction that he joined in 2014 and took over leadership of in 2016—before being reunited with his “Golden Lover,” Kota Ibushi. 

Here are excerpts from Omega’s first public words on the matter via  Chris Charlton over at

“When he came to help me, I had a flashback to our time as the Golden Lovers. Ibushi’s always been kind of hard to figure out, but I kind of understood something. The real Kenny is always at Kota’s side.

“I said I wanted to face him (in the G1 Final) but the truth is what I wanted was to stand in the ring with him.

“(I didn’t go to WWE) because I was waiting for him. If we aren’t together, there’s no point. I want us to change the world together. I took belts with Bullet Club, did a lot, but that was all the job. Golden Lovers transcends wrestling. This is real life. As long as there was a chance for this to happen, I wasn’t going to say goodbye to NJPW.

“I don’t know if he wants what I want. But if he does, we can do something amazing together.”
