All Elite Wrestling (AEW) star Riho was recently interviewed by Sportskeeda to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Riho discussed competing at AEW Double Or Nothing and tagging with Kenny Omega several years ago.
Here are the highlights:
Competing at Double Or Nothing:
Yes, it was the biggest crowd that I have performed for. However, all of the wrestlers were from Japan so thankfully, it was the same style that I’m used to, that I’m comfortable with.
The only difference is that I was performing in front of 20000 people. That gave me the feeling that everything I’ve done until now was for something. That it accomplished something.
Tagging with Kenny Omega:
(Laughs) I don’t know if you can call it a bond. We tagged together maybe five, maybe eight years ago. I think when he saw me compete, he was fascinated with regards to my potential.
From what I’ve heard since then, he’s watched my matches and stayed updated with regard to my progress. He was the one who called me down. Yeah, for him to be interested in my career after so many years is special.
