All Elite Wrestling held their WrestleDream PPV event this past Sunday from the Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, Washington, with “The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay, Konosuke Takeshita and “The Spanish God” Sammy Guevara taking on “The Best Bout Machine” Kenny Omega, Kota Ibushi and “The Ocho” Chris Jericho in a Trios Match in one of the show’s featured matchups.
AEW star Kenny Omega took part in the WrestleDream media scrum and talked about a number of topics including how it is definitely a safe bet to say that Kota Ibushi will be back in AEW.
Omega said, “I believe it’s definitely a safe bet to say he’ll be back. Ibushi and I, we’ve really gone through the ringer. We’ve been tossed into the meat grinder. Part of the reason I was motivated to go to DDT in the first place was because of Kota Ibushi. I really felt attracted to his style and outlook on professional wrestling. We’ve done everything we could to leave it all out there. We’ve broken ourselves over and over again, just to build ourselves back up to break each other down again. I really feel like when there is no else around us and our pursuit of our own personal best, we are each other’s shoulders to cry on. It really means a lot, now, after all this time apart, in our current old man broken states, to be there and support each other. Still train together for these matches and still go in front of a packed house and with people like Chris and make magic.”
“We’re making up for a lot of lost time. The friendship and personal relationship will never die. To be in a professional environment with him again is just great. I love being able to travel and train with him again. It’s wonderful. I think it’s safe to say he’ll be back.”
