Kenny Omega Says He Has 'One Or Two Friends' To Help Even The Odds After AEW DON Loss

The heated rivalry between Blackpool Combat Club and The Elite is far from over. After his team's loss in Anarchy In The Arena over the weekend, Kenny Omega hinted that The Elite could call in reinforcements in their battle, especially after losing what turned out to be a flimsy ally in Konosuke Takeshita; he betrayed The Elite at Double or Nothing at the direction of Don Callis. After the show went off the air, Omega addressed the crowd in attendance where he suggested the possibility.

"I might not be the most popular guy backstage, but there is a bigger world than AEW, and I still got at least one or two really good friends that can even up the odds," Omega said. "You guys stay tuned. We are not done! This is not over!"

That instantly opened up speculation that perhaps Kazuchika Okada and maybe Kota Ibushi might be making their ways to AEW in order to help out The Elite, perhaps as soon as within the month at the upcoming sequel to Forbidden Door. While Okada teamed up with "The Best Bout Machine" at NJPW's New Year Dash earlier this year, Ibushi was, for years, Omega's tag team partner as part of The Golden Lovers. Ibushi became a free agent earlier this year, allowing for easy mobility in helping his longtime friend settle a grudge. 

The cross-promotion Forbidden Door takes place this year at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada, on June 25, putting AEW and NJPW on the clock to make this happen in time if that's the plan.
