10HE IS FROM WINNIPEG, SAME AS CHRIS JERICHO
While Kenny Omega is often mistakenly referred to as one of the best American wrestlers to ever compete in Japan, that is not really true. Omega is actually from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. While Chris Jericho was born in New York, since his father was a hockey player, he actually
grew up in Winnipeg as well.
Crazily, Omega was also an ice hockey player growing up, so the connections with Chris Jericho continued to grow. Now, as 2019 sees both men in the upstart AEW Wrestling, the Canadian wrestling heritage should remain strong as wrestling heads to an exciting new future.
