It looks like IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega will be the subject of an upcoming HBO documentary. Toronto musician Joseph Shabson was recently a guest on the “Kreative Kontrol” podcast. During his appearance, he noted that he recently scored music for a documentary about a professional wrestler for HBO. He named that wrestler to be New Japan Pro Wrestling star Kenny Omega.
Here’s what Shabson had to say:
“I just finished a documentary about a wrestler. That’s going to be coming out on HBO in the New Year, which is going to be really exciting.
“It’s a wrestler named Kenny Omega. He’s a wrestler from Winnipeg, but went to Japan and formed this tag team called the Golden Lovers, which was sort of like the first ever queer storyline in wrestling. He’s a pretty incredible dude; I was really happy with scoring that.”
HBO recently produced a documentary on WWE Hall Of Famer Andre The Giant that was a big hit. It was co-produced with the WWE, JMH Films and Ringer Films.
