"Thy dawn, O Master of the World, thy dawn;
For thee the sunlight creeps across the lawn,
For thee the ships are drawn down to the waves,
For thee the markets throng with myriad slaves,
For thee the hammer on the anvil rings,
For thee the poet of beguilement sings."
-Kenny Omega had a pretty standard childhood growing up. Born in Canada he always had a dream of becoming a professional athlete. One night with a few friends he went to a local independent wrestling show in town and that is when his goals and ambitions started to take a different path. Omega was enthralled when he saw national independent icon Canadian X battle Jushin "Thunder" Liger. It was a high flying contest that convinced Omega that he should take a path towards professional wrestling. After the match, Omega met Canadian X and at that point he knew that was what he wanted to do.
-Omega started training at the age of 15 and made his debut as the "Canadian" at the age of 17. After showing immediate promise the wrestler under the Canadian X mask battled Omega across Canada which culminated in a 60 minute Iron Man match in Toronto. Omega came out the victor of that match and was anointed as the new "Canadian X" and quickly became the top independent draw in not just Canada but all of North America.
Early EWA tryout and All Japan Pro Wrestling debut
-In early 2005 Omega was offered a tryout with the EWA. EWA President Shane McMahon passed on Omega due to his youth and dismissed his inexperience on the "big stage" of professional wrestling. Despite the rejection Omega continued to work on the independent scene when he was invited to participate in a All Japan Pro Wrestling show. During his performances, Stan "The Lariat" Hansen started to keep an eye on the young Canadian.
All Japan Pro Wrestling 2006-2017
-Stan Hansen took Omega under his wing and encouraged Omega to retire the Canadian X mantle. Omega did so and made his re-debut as Kenny Omega the "World Warrior". Omega would tour with AJPW for many years, working his way up the card and locking horns with many wrestlers that were brought in for the summer and fall tours. Omega would start to gain attention from wrestling fans in Japan and fans that would share clips of his matches over the internet. He would even attract large crowds at independent shows when he was permitted to run dates back in North America.
-Omega's big break came when he made it into the Champions Carnival tournament. Advancing to the quarter finals in his first attempt, he came up against Joe Doering, another up and coming "gaijin" wrestler that was under the guidance of Stan Hansen. Omega lost to Doering in their first encounter with Joe winning the entire tournament and eventually becoming All Japan Triple Crown Champion. Through the fall and winter Omega would chase Doering and challenge him for the Triple Crown, always losing in a close decision to the champion.
-Through their battles there would be a level of respect that formed between the two and they eventually formed a tag team that was managed by Stan Hansen. The tag team would be known as the "Bullet Club" and would dominate AJPW until Doering was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2015. Having to retire, Doering would step back from the ring leaving Omega to face the world by himself once again.
-With his friend battling cancer Omega took on the persona of "The Cleaner". The Cleaner would used hyper aggressive tactics and methods to defeat his opponents. During the fall of 2015 Omega first met Mandy Leon who was touring with the STARDOM promotion at the time. Leon and Omega quickly became an item and she would be by his side for his Champions Carnival victory in 2016. Under the guidance from Hansen, Omega would challenge the Triple Crown Champion but would fall short once again.
-After Kenny's unsuccessful bid for the Triple Crown Joe Doering would make a surprise return to announce that he was cancer free. Joined by Mandy Leon the trio announced that the Bullet Club had reformed, It was during this time that many online and in the wrestling world believed that it was just a matter of time before Doering, Omega, and Mandy Leon joined the EWA as the Bullet Club.
Bullet Club Breakup+EWA Contract
-Doering would return to AJPW full time six months later and jumped to the front of the line for a Triple Crown title shot. In a heated press conference Omega proclaimed himself the "Best Bout Machine" and the best wrestler in the world to not be under EWA contract. He then shocked the wrestling world and signed a legitimate EWA contract in front of Doering and the Japanese media. Omega's final match in AJPW was against Doering where Joe beat him and proclaimed the Bullet Club to be "dead and buried"
-Shocked at the turn of events Mandy Leon left Omega prior to the match and would remain in Japan until she signed with the EWA in late 2017.
-Kenny Omega would debut in the EWA in February 2017 against Bobby Lashley.
-Omega would battle against the odds several times in the EWA until he re-formed the Bullet Club not once but twice. His first attempt at his own Bullet Club was formed with John Cena but that swiftly fell apart once Omega felt that the unit was not expressing the "core values" of what the Bullet Club name was built upon. He would then form a highly successful tag team at random with Chris Sabin. They would go on to unsuccessfully challenge for the EWA Tag Team titles. Omega and Sabin parted ways after the second unsuccessful attempt and Omega would go on the shelf for several months contemplating his future. He would re-emerge several months later under the management of Dario Cueto and with the support of his friend Joe Doering. They would re-form the Bullet Club in hopes of spearheading a assault upon the EWA in 2019 but that fell apart in the early summer of 2019. Kenny Omega was released from the EWA in June of 2019.
-In early June of 2020 almost one year to the day that he was released Kenny Omega returned to EWA action against the debuting David Starr. Showing some rust on the big stage Omega was able to power through and get the victory over Starr. Kenny, still not under a formal EWA contract was asked to return one week later against Zack Sabre Jr. in Iowa City, Iowa. The former Bullet Club leader defeated the submission master and was able to look past Eita who attempted to involve himself in the match.
