While doing an interview with Sports Illustrated, Omega spoke about the working relationship between AEW and NJPW. Of course, various stars in AEW have worked for NJPW since All Elite Wrestling launched.
Hiroshi Tanahashi made an appearance for Chris Jericho’s 30th Anniversary Celebration in AEW. Aside from that, it’s been one-sided in the favor of NJPW. Once the COVID-19 pandemic passes, Omega is hopeful that will change.
“Now more than ever, with the entire world struggling, we could really make lemonade out of lemons by putting forth our best efforts for a collaborative effort,” said Omega. “That’s the great thing about pro wrestling. A lot of people are in this business because they love making people happy. There are a lot of us in wrestling right now that want nothing more than to make fans happy. We get lost in our own fantasy booking talking about how cool it would be to team up, and there are restrictions in the world right now, but maybe down the road.”
Omega also talked about facing Jon Moxley for the AEW World Title, being an ambassador for Redcon1, and more. Check out the full interview here.
