The first match got 6 Stars. What do you think they'll do for an encore?
Fans all over the world simply can't wait for the rematch between Kenny Omega and Kazuchika Okada, which will take place on June 11 at Dominion.
But if it were up to Kenny Omega, fans would be waiting a while longer. In an interview with ESPN, Omega said this:
“If I’m going to give you a personal opinion, I would say that, I personally think it’s too soon to revisit that match. I would have liked to just let that performance be, come back to it at a later date. But there comes a time in business when it’s just important to move numbers, put asses in seats, as the saying goes, and you have to come out guns blazing. I knew eventually there would be a second match, regardless of how good or bad it was. I think there’s going to be a third. I still think there’s going to be an Omega-Okada four. (But) I’ve been called to duty sooner than I would have liked to have been, and I’m put into a situation where that match is still very fresh in everyone’s minds.”
Omega truly is an artist. He knows what the fans want, but he also knows they don't really know what they want. They think they want it now, but Omega knows if they have to wait for it, it will be all the sweeter.
Delayed gratification. That's the way Kenny likes it.
