Details on the feud between Will Ospreay and Kenny Omega
The rivalry between Will Ospreay And Kenny Omega it has been going on for a while now, with the two often bickering on social networks and throwing barbs at each other in some interviews. In August they also wrestled in the same ring a AEW Dynamitein a 3 vs 3 match that involves the Elite and it UNITED EMPIRE.
As reported by Fighftul, it seems that the key man to develop this rivalry and to bring it to a match at Wrestle Kingdom was Rocky Romero: the athlete has in fact played a fundamental role in the global expansion of New Japan and is in constant contact with Tony Khan for these collaborations.
