Wrestler Kenny Omega Makes Entrance in Sword Art Online Kirito's Outfit

posted on by Kim Morrissy

Wrestler Kenny Omega made his entrance to the AEW Double or Nothing event on Saturday while sporting Kirito's iconic black outfit from Sword Art Online.

In case there were any doubts about Omega's fondness for Sword Art Online and Japanese pop culture in general, in 2014, he posted a tweet in Japanese about how he managed to obtain all the Attack on Titan and Sword Art Online figures from a UFO catcher.

According to Gamerant, the jacket was also modified to have a single feathered wing on the back, a nod to Omega's "One-Winged Angel" finishing move, which itself is a reference to Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII.

Omega appeared in a previous New Japan Pro Wrestling event last year wearing Destiny 2-inspired gear.
