Kenny Omega is returning to DDT later this year.
DDT has announced that Omega will team with Riho in a tag match against Antonio Honda & Miyu Yamashita at Ultimate Party 2019. The show is taking place at Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan on Sunday, November 3.
Omega sent out a tweet where he called DDT “my home before most knew or cared about Kenny Omega.” He wrote that Riho was his first partner — even before “him” (Kota Ibushi), Honda is one of his greatest rivals, and he wants to see what Yamashita’s got.
Omega also made an appearance via video at a DDT show this March. He teased appearing in-person in the future.
This will be Omega’s first match for DDT since he departed the promotion in 2014.
Omega is facing PAC at AEW All Out next Saturday (August 31). PAC is the replacement for Jon Moxley, with Moxley unable to wrestle at the pay-per-view because a serious case of MRSA has returned in his elbow.
Riho vs. Hikaru Shida is also set for All Out. Dave Meltzer reported that the winner will advance to the match to crown the first AEW Women’s Champion. The inaugural AEW Women’s Champion will be crowned on the promotion’s TNT premiere on October 2.
