Kenny Omega talks business over Apex Legends.
All Elite Wrestling is kicking into their next gear with shows coming up on June 29th, July 14th and their 'All Out' show in August which is the pre-cursor to All In from last September. It was announced earlier this year that former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega would be joining All Elite Wrestling as a talent and a co-Executive Vice President.
Omega represented AEW at the E3 Gaming Convention in California and it was at that convention that he announced that AEW's Fyter Fest show on June 29th will stream live on Bleacher Report Live for free. Omega also chatted with 'Kotaku' at the event and shared that he does have business conversations concerning AEW over games of Apex Legends.
“One of the things I would actually do is, if you want to talk business with me, learn Apex [Legends]. We’ll squad up, join a party and we’ll talk all the business you want while we play,” he said. “I may or may not have,” he said when asked about recruiting talents over games of Apex Legends. “And there may or may not be more recruits via Apex Legends or some sort of other video game means where we can have a party chat,” he said. “I’m not going to lie, there are times when I’m playing with people online, whether it be just random people or it be people I’ve just set up sessions with and, via how they act online with me, I can tell this guy would be a handful backstage. You’ll get a feeling for how they interact with people, how they multitask, how they handle pressure, if they’re willing to help you out in a jam. You get an indication of how people really are.”
Kenny Omega has been announced for a marquee match at All Out in August against the current IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Champion Jon Moxley and to keep up with the match card for All Out, head over to Fightful's "events" page.
