J-Shoot: Kenny Omega Interview

In a special episode of J-Shoot, I had the absolute pleasure of talking with the Bullet Club’s newest member Kenny “The Cleaner” Omega. You can listen to the interview on iTunes, PodOmatic, and Stitcher.

Kenny talks extensively about his career in wrestling, DDT, NJPW, Bullet Club, PWG, wrestling rubber sex dolls and young girls, Wrestle Kingdom 9 and more.

One of the highlights for me was Kenny talking about his epic encounter with ACH at PWG BOLA 2014. A match which involved Streetfighter moves, Austin vs. The Rock, and even a chainsaw*.

Kenny also talks about the inspiration for his new “The Cleaner” Bullet Club persona.

You can follow Kenny Omega on Twitter here, and you can watch him wrestle live at the highly anticipated New Japan Wrestle Kingdom 9 from the Tokyo Dome on January 4th, available on NJPW World and on PPV in association with Global Force Wrestling. Finally, you can follow me on twitter here.
