Kenny Omega Reflects On The “Like A Dragon Gaiden Street Fight” He Had

AEW star Kenny Omega recently spoke with Gamespot on a number of topics including the Like A Dragon Gaiden Street Fight he was a part of last year.

Omega said, “I was involved in the Like A Dragon Gaiden Street Fight Match. For as much as a Kendo stick might hurt or some barbed wire, thumbtacks, being hit with a bicycle, full blast, we’re talking 360, discus throw bicycle shot, there’s never quite been anything like it. In fact, I don’t even know if you can see it. I have a scar from the wheel hitting me. It’s not going away. That’s what a bike does to you,” Omega said. “There were comments were like, ‘Oh, this is silly. Why would someone use a bike in a fight? How could that hurt?’ I couldn’t believe people actually think that you’re gonna hit with a real-life bicycle. I get it. I’ve been there. I’m living it, still living it to this day.”

He also talked about how someone had to get hit with the bike during the match and how he ended up being that person.

“The dude had the bike in the ring. It’s like, oh man, I know this is a show, ‘Alright, I’ll fucking get hit with a bike.’ So I go in the ring and I’m just getting walloped by this bike and I’m like, ‘Yeah, you guys made the right decision, but someone had to do it.’ Does that mean I won’t do it ever again? No, shoot. Let me do promotional work again. I love matches like that. When those weapon attacks do more damage than your normal attack would, there’s a reason for it. It’s not fun, it’s unpleasant.”
