Kenny Omega still hopeful for a match with AJ Styles. The two were part of the Bullet Club during their time together at New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Before signing with the WWE, AJ Styles was considered the best wrestler in the world. In recent years however, that title seems to have shifted to Kenny Omega. The two worked together in NJPW as integral members of the Bullet Club. In fact, Omega turned on Styles to take over the leadership of the group. However, the two never got to share a ring as opponents.

“Going back to things that I love that never got a sequel or a part 2 or part 3 or 4 or whatever, it never got another season. I hate feeling like it’s over and I want these things to exist in my mind, at least. I think for fans that maybe dug those stories. I never want to completely close the book on them, because maybe, who knows somewhere down the line I might have that match with AJ and I want to be able to call upon that history when the time comes.”

Styles has slowed down a bit in the last few years. However, he is still just as sharp and undoubtedly one of the best today. However, it is unlikely that the two will meet anytime soon. It is unlikely that either of the two will jump ship any time soon. Much like Omega however, that won’t stop fans from looking forward to this dream match taking place one day.
