“I appreciate the sentiments on my historic win,” Omega responded to Woods on Twitter. “But for you to assume that I wouldn’t find any friends for
#E3 is about as silly as your mid-card comedy act partners. Get ready for your first main event, boys.”
WWE.com reported on the matchup. They even referred to New Day’s challengers as IWGP Champions. Omega’s “Best Bout Machine” nickname is referenced in the article as well.
The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega won heavyweight gold in NJPW over the weekend. Omega defeated Kazuchika Okada to finally win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at Dominion 2018. The Young Bucks won the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships from Evil and Sanada as well. It’s the first time the Bucks have won heavyweight gold in NJPW.
