Kenny Omega is one of the best wrestlers that AEW has, and he recently spoke about the end of the Wednesday Night Wars. Kenny Omega currently holds the AEW World Title and the Impact World Title. He is one of the most valuable stars in the world right now.
Kenny Omega was signed before AEW held their first proper show, called AEW Double or Nothing. He was part of the main event. He lost that night to legendary WWE Superstar, Chris Jericho. Kenny Omega was used on the AEW show, AEW Dynamite.
He was one of the stars that helped AEW Dynamite challenge WWE NXT, which also used to take place on Wednesday. However, WWE NXT is now held on Tuesday. This according to many fans ended the Wednesday Night Wars.
Kenny Omega on The Wednesday Night Wars Ending
On the PWI podcast, Kenny Omega stated that the Wednesday Night Wars didn’t really mean much to him.
According to him, the war is actually much bigger. “For me, and I’m sure people in my company will be reading this and hearing this, and that’s fine,” Kenny Omega said. “This is my true honest feeling.
I never felt one way or another towards the war, if you can call it that, I wouldn’t call it that. I knew we would tell different stories in our company. I knew we would show different types of matches in our company. I can only control what I have a hand in, and that would be my stuff and a variety of other things that may or may not be on the show.
And I’m sure the Bucks feel the same way. For NXT to have moved to Tuesday, I mean sure, great. I just feel like now, I never felt like it was a battle for Wednesday. I feel like it’s a battle across the board. There’s so much wrestling every day during the week.
I try to think back to when I was a fan, and I thought I was a mega-fan when I was watching wrestling but not doing it. And even still, I think at the height of my fandom, I couldn’t watch the amount of wrestling that’s available to us today.
Couldn’t do it five, seven days a week. I just couldn’t do it. So for me, the real war is ‘how do you get the eyeballs for your day of the week?’ We’re not battling for Wednesday, I feel like I’m battling for the week. You know what I mean?”
