– We noted yesterday how AEW Executive Vice President Kenny Omega had some harsh words for WWE NXT and the roster when speaking about the “Wednesday Night War” during an interview. Omega said if they were on the same promotion, the NXT talents would be working the dark matches to his main event, and said that NXT has developmental talents while AEW has real stars. This led to an exchange with NXT Superstar Dominik Dijakovic on Twitter. You can read our report on the comments by clicking here.
A fan used Omega’s comments to taunt Matt Riddle on Twitter. He wrote, “@SuperKingofBros it has to hurt to hear the truth hey bro ? @KennyOmegamanX is totally right guys Like you are dark match trash being shown on national tv and that is embarrassing”
Omega responded and corrected the fan.
Omega wrote, “No he isn’t, I love Matt. We bros. Exceptions to every rule/statement”
Riddle then confirmed Omega’s tweet. He added, “We Bros #stallion”
