Why is Kenny Omega constantly in tag matches after having a six star match?

Because if he has six star matches every month it ain't special. Less is more is how NJPW books.

Sorry didn't mean to poke holes in your precious. I have enjoyed what I watch just think Omega deserves more loved based solely on PPV booking.

You didn't poke any holes, you're right. They save their matches all year but then have a month where they blow through dream matches.

The key is the tournament matches are only 8-12 minutes so there's still the intrigue of a big long match when the big matches happens outside the tournaments. But you're still right.

Anyways Omega lost at Wrestle Kingdom and then lost in the 1st round of the NJ Cup. So he hasn't done anything to earn a big match right now. But don't worry, there's big plans for him. They're just rebuilding him the way they always rebuild guys after losing.

I don't think Kennys gonna be up to anything too important until the US shows. He should be in the main event of that show regardless of who he faces imo.

Now if Kenny isn't on those, or isn't doing anything important on those, then I would say that he's probably out the door whenever his contract is up. I mean, why else wouldn't they push him during the American expansion?

Kenny is not going anywhere. He's gonna hold the IWGP belt before the year is over.

Was it really a 6 star match? Or is that just hype?

Meanwhile, I haven't watched the 8min LU Rey Mysterio match Blacknight posted on my wall 6 months ago.
