Kenny Omega Issues Public Statement On Kota Ibushi

Kenny Omega's speaking out on his rekindled friendship with Kota Ibushi.

Speaking to Tokyo Sports (translations provided by Chris Charlton), Kenny Omega recalled what he was thinking as Kota Ibushi came out to his aid after Cody turned on him on the second night of The New Beginning.

"When he came to help me, I had a flashback to our time as (the) Golden Lovers," Omega said. "Ibushi's always been kind of hard to figure out, but I kind of understood something. The real Kenny is always at Kota's side. I said that I wanted to face him (in the G1 final) but the truth is what I wanted was to stand in the ring with him."

As it turns out, Kenny Omega feels that he can't leave to go to WWE or anywhere because he still wants to team with Kota Ibushi -- he wants them to change the world together. 

"(I didn't go to WWE) because I was waiting for him," he said. "If we aren't together, there's no point. I took belts with Bullet Club, did a lot, but that was all the job. Golden Lovers transcend wrestling. This is real life. As long as there was a chance for this to happen, I wasn't going to say goodbye to NJPW."

Where the duo will go from here is anyone's guess. One interesting angle that was recently shot (which you can see above in the latest episode of Being the Elite) is that the newly reformed Golden Lovers may be joining forces with The Young Bucks.
