Kenny Omega has called NXT wrestlers "dark match" talent and everyone is freaking out.  I feel like no one can handle a wrestling war in the woke era.  It ain't 1998 anymore and people are already getting way too offended by normal competitive chiding.  PWInsider is getting all offended on behalf of others.  LOL


SK did an interview with Kenny Omega, where they asked him what he thought about "going to war" with NXT.  It's fair to say his comments were inflammatory.

"You can call it a war if you want. It's like, to me, we're in a completely different kind of business. I mean what they're doing is different from what we're doing. It's weird, because it's hard to say you're going to war with people that I call my friends.  And yet, we are going to war. And yet, when I sit back and look at the grand picture, I'm going to war with these dudes that, if we were on the same show together, the same promotion...let's pretend there were no borders. Let's pretend there were no promotions. Let's just pretend there's just one big promotion. If these guys were in the same show as me, they'd be in the dark match. They'd be in the opening match of my main event match."

I won't even comment on that other than to say, "WOW, I can't believe he would say that". OK, I have one more thing to say.  Maybe you could dismiss this if Omega was "just a wrestler", MAYBE, but he is also an officer in the company.  

Dominic Dijakovic tweeted the following in response to Kenny Omega's comments earlier today about the NXT talent: 

Hey @KennyOmegamanX remember when my match with @RealKeithLee embarrassed yours on your PWG homecoming weekend of BOLA 2017? Tune in this Wednesday to NXT TV on USA at 8pm so two developmental guys can show a real star how it’s done, again.

Meanwhile, Omega responded to a tweeter who attacked Matt Riddle for Omega's statement about NXT having dark match and opening match wrestlers, noting that Matt Riddle was the exception to his statement. 
No he isn’t, I love Matt. We bros. Exceptions to every rule/statement

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
