AEW's Kenny Omega On His Career: 'Time Is Running Thin'

Over the last decade, Kenny Omega has done all he can, between stints in DDT, AEW, AAA, and NJPW, to make his case as one of the best wrestlers of the modern era, possibly of all time. But all things must come to an end, and with 23 years of experience, his 40th birthday only months away, and his AEW contract set to expire around the same time, Omega knows he's closer to the end than the beginning. But that only motivates Omega to work even harder, as he revealed in an interview with Sports Illustrated promoting his cage match with Jon Moxley this Wednesday on "AEW Dynamite."

"Time is running thin on the Kenny Omega clock," Omega said. "I can guarantee anyone that sees me perform live that there is a reason for that performance, and I work to make every one special. I wanted this one to be unique and very fun for people who tune in and people who are there live. And I know how competitive Jon is. This will be a grueling, physically demanding and violent cage match."

Incredibly, this will be the first cage match Omega has participated in during his long career, which will surely add even more motivation for him to make it memorable. This will also be another chance for Omega to express his superiority towards his long-time rival, as the former AEW World Champion currently holds a 2-1 career record over Moxley, including a win in their most recent match, an Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match at AEW Revolution 2021.
