Kenny Omega: I See A Spark In Jon Moxley That WWE Never Showed

Kenny Omega discusses his upcoming match with Jon Moxley.

The ending shot of All Elite Wrestling's Double or Nothing was Jon Moxley (formerly Dean Ambrose in WWE) standing tall on a stack of chips after tossing Kenny Omega off the chips, through the stage below. The angle set up a bout between the two at AEW's next big show All Out on Aug. 31.

Speaking to GameSpot, Kenny Omega gave his thoughts on the reborn Jon Moxley.

"It's crazy because I remember seeing him on TV. I saw something there. I knew that there was something magnetic about him, something special about him. WWE never showed it," stated Omega. "And then when I see him nowadays, when I see these backstage promos, when I see the stuff that he's done in Japan, when I see the stuff that he's doing around the world, I see this new enthusiasm. I see the spark. I even see the physical condition that he's in. It's unlike anything I've ever seen. This is not the Moxley that came from that other place. This is a Jon Moxley that's reborn. I have to assume that this is a new entity, that this is a new person, and he has a type of enthusiasm and that sort of never-say-die attitude. And, with the skillset that he has, that magnetic charisma, with that ability to sell a match with this promo skills, with that ability to be incredibly physical, he's kind of like a new-age Terry Funk. You know what I mean? He brings something very new to the table that people clearly enjoy."

Moxley has talked about being re-energized since leaving WWE, recently stating that he feels 18 years old again. You can view his full comments by clicking here.
