How do you rate Kenny Omega's title reign thus far?

Recommended Posts

5/10. Had a fantastic G1 run but everything since that point has felt off. Whether you chalk that up to Omega's personal business outside the ring or the questionable booking is debatable, but it definitely hasn't delivered in my opinion.

I really wish i was as big of a fan of his championship reign as it seems others are but i feel like it hasn't lived up to the hype that was built up as he clawed his way to gaining it in the first place.
Match quality aside (because i don't think anyone can call Omega a bad wrestler) i think that compared to the champions before him he has felt absent as a champion despite being around at most of the major NJPW events.
His focus and participation with Golden Lovers and the destruction of Bullet Club have taken his attention away i suppose. In my mind if it had been another year before he had finally claimed the championship while all these stories took place he would've been better for it.

In short the travel was more exciting than the destination...or however the saying goes.

Omega title reign hasn't been much, it only now with Tanahashi that he finally having a threat to his title, but since his reign he hasn't had much matches for the Title, the only ones he had were Cody and The Triple Threat, now he can have a oppenent like Tanahashi that can be interesting to watch.

6/10. It's not terrible but also not great. The problem with the title run is NJPW's booking is trying to be "unpredictable" but the thing is when you go for unpredictability over actual interesting booking the booking can actually be worse. That seems to be the case with what New Japan is doing currently. The main problem is the fact that instead of just giving us Kenny VS Ibushi in a title match (the match most people wanted) they threw Cody in there. Why? Because they booked it so that they were 1 and 1 but the problem was that Cody didn't have a claim to the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. He hadn't pinned Kenny in months and he already got his championship match for pinning him. The Other issue is that there were a lot of potential title matches that the fans would've been excited about but we didn't get to see. Then we have the upcoming Tanahashi title defense. A match that has been overshadowed by the feud between the Bullet Club and Okada and Tanahashi. The fact that Omega didn't work the last tour continues to hurt his championship run. What however saves Omega's title reign is the quality of his defenses and the fact that they finally gave Ishii the IWGP Heavyweight Championship match he had deserved for years. So while Omega's run currently is disappointing the match quality of his defenses and the match he won the title at that being excellent give him a 6/10
