Not knowing who kenny omega was, i was curious to learn more about him. The only stuff i saw of him was his deep south stuff and quite frankly at the time, i wasn’t really impress by him at the time. So i thought maybe the documentary would change my impression of him.
So i watch the documentary and while i liked most of the documentary, i skip over the DDT stuff because i found it disgusting and anybody that defend this type of stuff in wrestling should be ashamed of themselves, it didn’t really change my mind about him. Don’t get me wrong, the guys is really good and he made it in the world of wrestling without wwe’s help but i wouldn’t call him the best wrestler in the world.
In the end, i thought that it was a really good documentary and i did learn more about who kenny omega is but in the end, he didn’t gain a new fan with this documentary.
It was this video that introduced me to Kenny back in 2007. As soon as I found out he created wrestling moves for “Flashman’s Timestopper” and the Hadouken, I was sold. It was hard not to believe he’d eventually become a big star, but in hindsight he exceeded even those expectations.
