Backstage News On Kenny Omega’s NJPW Return

As noted, Kenny Omega is returning to New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) as he appeared via video promo at Sunday’s NJPW X STARDOM Historic X-Over event to challenge Will Ospreay to a match at Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4, 2023. New Japan Pro Wrestling made the bout official on Monday morning.

Fightful Select reports that the talks about the match started over the summer, and Rocky Romero played a huge role in facilitating the match and helping get it cleared.

Romero is someone that Romero has been a huge factor in NJPW’s global expansion and their positive relationships with various promotions, including AEW, as, at one point, Romero was said to be in frequent contact with AEW Owner Tony Khan to make deals happen.

The deal was finalized within the past two or three weeks, despite conversations happening over the course of several months.

Omega’s suspension in relation to the All Out brawl with CM Punk slowed down the talks.
