Wrong.

Kenny was moving to the states either way, he was done.

It was going to be either WWE or AEW. I don't doubt he's disappointed that NJPW seem to have a grudge against him and the Elite now while they're still trying to be pretty open and friendly though.
There's more to the story than that. Both sides have their reasons

The Elite gave them months of notice and were still willing to work with them. Their contracts were coming up and they had the right to leave.

Regardless of long term booking, It was entirely reasonable.
It wasn't months notice. It was like the day of or a couple days before wrestle kingdom when njpw found out. and with Kenny they found out he was leaving after he gave a a interview l a pro wrestling magazine irrc
And what Wrestling company wouldn't be mad about guys who they gave a big push to only for those guys create there own brand and leave and form there own company.

Park has always looked at Kenny like he's a bitch eating crackers. He's just an easily gotten to kind of goof.

In the end, I wouldn't be certain about putting my faith in what a company says being true. And if these wrestling companies weren't mad about Prince Devitt or AJ Styles going to a company that almost certainly wishes NXT Japan (if and when it ever comes to be) could outsell them, they shouldn't be mad about AEW.

LMAOOOO. Was this based off a bad personal interaction?

Still listening to Wally's theme from Pokemon Omega Ruby a day later.

If I was an indie wrestler, I would absolutely come out to this shit.

I wouldn't deserve it but would do it anyway.

But those are different situations though like NXT Japan wasn't even a idea thing when Prince devitt or aj left

Honestly, no idea where the beef came from. He's been like this a while so it could just be a proxy war against BC marks or something silly like that.

Yeah, but that's still leaving and going to a competitor while your company is on the rise. NJPW America ain't competition with AEW, because they don't have an actual channel most people can watch.

This is what brought me to "you chose Kenny Omega as your dude to dunk on". Like...okay he's probably a pretentious due to his talent. But compare that to the things all these other wrestlers have done over the years and it's like...what??

But when those guys left was the beginning of the actual talent war between njpw and the Fed. It's just a different time. and even then my point still stands is that why wouldn't Njpw Japan not be mad about guys who they gave a big push too ,especially Kenny Omega ,only for them to build their own brand so they can create their own promotion.

Trent is the real heel here.

He told them he was staying and then got the hell out of Dodge.

Being mad about Trent is something I can understand. They legit just stole that man lmao

Because you're a business and getting mad about that sounds like some petty Vince McMahon shit.
