Very few wrestlers have risen to the top of the wrestling business faster than Kenny Omega. Tyson Smith wanted to an ice hockey goalie, but his uncle, the Golden Sheik, inspired him to pursue a career in professional wrestling.

Kenny Omega has competed all across the world. He was NJPW's biggest gaijin (foreign) superstar, and paved the way for the likes of Jay White, Cody Rhodes, and fellow North American talent to wrestle in NJPW. He also briefly wrestled for a small Japanese promotion called DDT, where he met his best friend and former tag partner Kota Ibushi.
