Kenny Omega Vs Jim Cornette
There are few set rules in professional wrestling:
but you can guarantee the moment Kenny Omega
says or does something, Jim Cornette will
find a way to hate it.
Thanks to a GIF of Kenny’s best friend forever
Kota Ibushi taking several canadian destroyers
from a blow up doll – wrestling!
– Cornette is once again mad about something
that Omega enjoys.
Prepare the bleep machine…
“So apparently this is the “great” Kota
Ibushi that some people rave about, another
piece of s*** playing wrestler that hangs
around with noted disgrace to our business
@KennyOmegamanX . Birds of a feather s***
the same, apparently.
Someone please tell him I said f*** You.”
And just in case that wasn’t clear enough,
Corny followed up with:
Another way of looking at this would be, blow
Because it’s a blow up doll.
And it also sucked in Kenny Omega:
“Jim, I warned you about this.
I said you could use my name to continue making
your living as long as you refrain from polluting
Don’t force my hand.”
What’s he gonna do?
Kill the business?
Best Of The Super Juniors Standings
Ibushi will likely be more concerned, however,
with New Japan’s Best of the Super Juniors
tournament currently taking place.
Beginning on May 18th and concluding on June
4th, BOSJ – as it’s awkwardly acronymed
– brings together the best lighter weight
stars of New Japan and beyond.
Now that everyone has wrestled four matches
each, we can see that Tiger Mask IV and Flip
Gordon lead Block A with 6 points, and Dragon
Lee is out in front alone for Block B, also
with 6 points.
Maybe this time next year, they’ll be joined
by a former WWE high flyer…
John Morrison To New Japan?
…as current IMPACT and Lucha Underground
star John Morrison Impact Mundo might be on
his way to Japan.
The latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes
Morrison “has inquired about coming in”,
and that “Previously there had been interest
but he was held up politically because he
was working for AAA and New Japan won’t
use AAA talent because of its loyalty to [AAA
rival promotion] CMLL.”
Dave Meltzer points out, though, that this
stance might have softened with Rey Mysterio
recently working for both New Japan and AAA.
I, for one, can’t wait for the New Japan
debut of John Morrison Impact Mundo NEVER
Io Shirai To WWE?
But as one former WWE star heads East, a Japanese
star could be going the other way, as F4WOnline
have confirmed Io Shirai is leaving Stardom
for WWE – following Tokyo Sports’ report
she’ll be finishing for the promotion on
Shirai is arguably one of the best wrestlers
on the planet, having been named Japanese
Women’s wrestling’s MVP in 2015, 2016, and
Also, she’s my favourite.
Shirai was set to move to WWE with Kairi Sane
last year, but a heart issue detected in her
medical caused the signing to fall through.
Meltzer notes she has since been medically
cleared, though, and she’s now dropped her
Wonder of Stardom title to Momo Watanabe.
Stardom apparently weren’t aware of Io leaving
Shirai is heavily rumored to be appearing
at the second May Young Classic in August,
and reports suggest WWE has made moves for
several other Japanese female wrestlers from
the Stardom promotion to also be a part of
Indie wrestling promotions are apparently
coming to the WWE Network!
