OMEGA VS OKADA: RANDOM NOTES ON AN INCREDIBLE MATCH

1) The bar has been set VERY high for 2017 match of the year.

2) This is one of the greatest matches I have ever seen. If the Dynamite Kid vs Tiger Mask and Flair vs Steamboat classics had a baby, it's name would be Omega vs Okada.

3) Kenny Omega is out of this world. He might be the perfect combination of wrestler/sports entertainer in the business.

4) If there was an award for best performance by a prop, the table in this match would win in a landslide. I don't think I have ever seen a table better teased or better utilized, leading to one of the greatest payoff crowd reactions I've ever witnessed. On its own, it may not stand out from other remarkable table spots – but in the context of its match, it was just incredible.

5) This is probably not the best choice if you are trying to get to sleep late at night.

#OmegaVsOkada may be many things, but it is NOT a cure for late night insomnia.
Please feel free to share your thoughts on this incredible match. If you haven't seen it, you really should!
One of the greatest of all time Mick Foley speaking the truth. Foley may be past his peak as far as performing goes, but dude is a legend and knows the hell out of the business.

WWE parking the truck full of money outside Kenny Omega's house as we speak.

Don't think Kenny will leave until he wins the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, he's a good chance of signing next year though.

The WWE had their chance. Kenny Omega was in the WWE under contract with Deep South Wrestling. DeMott treated him like shit and they lost one of the brightest stars of their future. That was over a decade ago.

Kenny left because everything was so scripted, he preferred to have more freedom to express himself.

When it comes to storytelling and psychology, he's a genius.

TBH, I didn't think Omega was going to be shit when I first started watching him either. People can be wrong.

I keep hearing about this guy.

I'll be honest I only watch wwe (and even then not as much these days) so I have no intention of looking up his match and such.

But I keep hearing praise about not only wrestling abilities but also "sports entertainer".

To me - The Rock or Stone Cold are the perfect mix of wrestler/sports entertainer.

How does Kenny Omega compare to them? Would he actually be entertaining in wwe?

Kenny is very different from Stone Cold or the Rock. His promo style is... unique.

Mick Foley perfected the weirdo promo style so Im not surprised he likes Kennys work.

Some hate it and think its terrible, some think its great. All depends on your tastes tbh.

Here's hoping NJPW locks him down on a lucrative 5 year contract on par with Okada as the faces of that company. WWE can wait. If NJPW is serious about worldwide expansion, Omega is pertinent to their interests.

I'm not going to say that Foley is wrong on this assessment of Omega. I do however question the WWE's ability to maximize what he brings to the table if he were to go there. I'm not sure of how much freedom they would give him. He has all the skills necessary tp be something special no matter where he is.
