Will filmed the videos below featuring IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega and his challenger Cody and his wife Brandi Rhodes. View more videos and subscribe to Will Pruett’s Youtube Page.
Powell’s POV: The first video has Omega on working at the Cow Palace, the state of Bullet Club, his freedom to work outside NJPW and his creative freedom in the ring, and how he prepares for his matches. The second video has Cody answering media questions about wrestling in San Francisco, why he changed his hair color again, whether he feels pressure to follow Omega vs. Kazuchika Okada, and Brandi provides a health update on her injured shoulder.
