Don welcomes Kenny Omega to the podcast and they talk about:
Kenny’s upcoming documentary called Omegaman – A Wrestling Love Story which airs on TSN in Canada on March 27th.
The documentary gives an overview of Kenny’s path through the wrestling business and he wants the film to appeal to everyone not just wrestling fans.
How the documentary was pitched to him and how he initially turned it down.
What Kenny does on his days off.
How the Kenny and Kota Ibushi’s relationship means different things to different people.
How he wanted the relationship with Ibushi to be portrayed (and not portrayed) and how they worked it old school style.
The reaction of the fans when Kota and Kenny reunited.
Evolution of the NJPW fans and style.
How Kenny learned Japanese.
Evolution of Kenny’s his character.
Verdict: Solid podcast by Don. They talked a lot about the documentary and I thought the way Kenny and Ibushi ‘worked’ their on-screen friendship was really interesting and reminded me of how old school promoters would not want heels and babyfaces hanging around together. At just around an hour, this is a very easy listen. LISTEN
