Kenny Omega explains why it doesn't matter that he's not in the top spot

On 22nd January 2020, Kenny Omega, paired with Adam Page, defeated the SoCal Uncensored by conquering the AEW World Tag Team Championship, scoring the first title change in the history of the federation. On February 29th, at Revolution, the two kept their belts against the Young Bucks: Dave Meltzer rated this match with six stars, which recorded the highest score ever assigned to a couple match and was rated by Meltzer himself as the best ever.

He is best known for his tenure in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, during which he held the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, the IWGP United States Championship, and the IWGP Intercontinental Championship among other titles. Also known for his video games-inspired persona, he was a member of the Bullet Club stable, later serving as the group's leader.

In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, he explained why it doesn't matter that he's not in the top spot: "For me, through the way I tell my stories and the way I value my fans from around the world, who mean the world to me, people have stuck with me even though I'm not in the main event picture.

And it doesn't matter if I'm not in the main event picture, I am performing my ass off to deliver main event level performances. I understand that you can't just be a dude that has long singles matches with the same people over and over.

You have to challenge yourself in all match types, including TV matches. Guys that think they're great in the Wild West where they can do whatever the f--k they want, sure, they're great. Not to sound egotistical, but putting on great matches, that's the easiest part for me. Try to do it when you have to hit a hard eight minutes, and still blow the fans' socks off."
