Kenny Omega The Toll of Being The ‘Belt Collector’

Last updated

AEW, AAA Mega and IMPACT World Champion Kenny Omega recently appeared on the Wrestling With the Week podcast. Omega discussed a number of topics on the show, including his stresses of being a World Champion in multiple promotions.

‘And I’m rolling with all these belt reigns I guess (laughs)” Kenny Omega began. “It’s a blessing, but a curse I guess. As a champion you get some high quality matches, you become the focal point of the shows.”

“But at the same time there’s a schedule that’s required, and a demand for your body and your health and your psychological health as well” Omega continued. “There’s just a lot that goes into being a champion I guess.”

“It’s cool to look at the pictures and go ’˜wow, look at all these belts!’ But then I think ’˜man, I have to defend these” Kenny Omega added. “I’ve got to make time to defend these. I’ve got to be that guy for the company somehow.”’

“And you just count the days in the week that you have available to do it” The master of the One Winged Angel concluded. “It just requires a lot of multi-tasking. But I’m still hanging on. I can do it right now, like I feel I can do it, so I’m going to do it. It may be my last hurrah, but I’m doing it.’

Kenny Omega is currently scheduled to defend his AAA Mega Championship against Andrade at AAA’s TripleMania event.
