See Kenny Omega as Sephiroth at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17


Kenny Omega channeled Sephiroth for his New Japan Pro Wrestling Wrestle Kingdom 17 appearance. In addition to wearing an outfit inspired by the Final Fantasy VII, he walked out with “One-Winged Angel” as his entrance theme.

Kenny Omega appeared at the event to face Will Ospreay. The two were competing for the International Wrestling Grand Prix (IWGP) United States Heavyweight Championship. He won the match.

Here’s Kenny Omega’s full entrance in his Sephiroth jacket.

Kenny Omega often references Sephiroth during his matches. For example, one of his more notable moves is named “One-Winged Angel.” He also wore an outfit inspired by the video game villain for Wrestle Kingdom 13.

However, Final Fantasy VII isn’t the only game series he’s referenced in his matches and moveset. For example, one of his attacks is called V-Trigger, just like the Street Fighter V kind of move. In addition, another one of his entrance themes was “Dr. Wily Stage 1” from Mega Man.

His next actual video game appearance could end up being in a new AEW game. Details about AEW Fight Forever started coming up in 2022. It is being developed by Yuke’s, which also developed games in the Earth Defense Force and WWE 2K series.
