Kenny Omega is the new IWGP World Heavyweight Champion

In what may end up as the match of 2018 and one of the greatest wrestling matches of all-time, Kenny Omega defeated Kazuchika Okada to win the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship in a 2-out-of-3 falls match.

Okada won the first fall about 30 minutes into the match. Omega won the second fall about 50 minutes in. Omega won the third fall at approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes with the One-Winged Angel.

It was exactly what you would expect from these two men and much more.

The Young Bucks and Kota Ibushi were in the ring when to celebrate.
