Kenny Omega cut a promo for the live crowd after the March 15 episode of AEW Dynamite.
On March 15, AEW made its debut in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Former AEW World Champions Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho are both Winnipeg natives, and they faced off in the main event. In the show-closing match, The House of Black (Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews) defeated The Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt Jacksonn & Nick Jackson) and the Jericho Appreciation Society (Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara & Daniel Garcia) to retain the AEW World Trios Championship.
After Dynamite went off the air, Omega cut a promo for the live crowd. In his message (via Nolan Hockey podcast), Omega discussed his homecoming. He noted that coming back to Winnipeg taught him to never forget where you came from, and home is where the heart is. Omega also stated that the experience taught him another lesson; he realized that if you've loved before, it's possible to love again.
"I suppose if there’s one thing that tonight has taught me, it’s to never forget where you came from. Family is family, home is where the heart is. You can always choose your friends. One lesson I’ve learned as well, I’ve supposed it’s that if you’ve loved before, it’s possible to possibly love again. Today, wow. What a success. Everything you see before you, this was nothing but a pipe dream. I was happy wrestling [names several places in Canada], Chalmers Rec Center. Then of course we have this little shindig. Stop me if you’ve heard this before. I think it was from a famous movie or something. If you build it, they will come. Boy, oh boy, did you guys come down for a show tonight. Though I am not a psychic, I do not have ESP, I have ESPN, by the looks of the crowd tonight, my guess is that we’ll be back. I would love to say the famous line. However, we still have more wrestling for each and every one of you. So that ticket that you purchased, it’s still good for one more hour of professional wrestling, so please stick around for a great episode of Rampage. It’s coming up for you next. In case you have a curfew, a bed time, anything like that, yeah, sure, I’ guess I’ll say the line. So for now, I must bid you adieu, so goodbye everyone, mwah [blows kiss] and goodnight. Bang [makes finger gun gesture]," Omega said.
