Kenny Omega and the Golden Lovers story are set to be the feature of an upcoming HBO documentary that will air in the new year.
This is according to Canadian musician Joseph Shabason, who appeared on Vish Khanna’s Kreative Kontrol podcast. At around 55 minutes into the podcast Shabason says the following:
“I just finished a documentary about a wrestler. That’s going to be coming out on HBO in the New Year, which is going to be really exciting.
It’s a wrestler named Kenny Omega. He’s a wrestler from Winnipeg, but went to Japan and formed this tag team called the Golden Lovers, which was sort of like the first ever queer storyline in wrestling … I was really happy with scoring that“
The full interview can be heard here on the Kreative Kontrol podcast.
Nothing has been officially confirmed by HBO or Kenny Omega as of writing this but that are some unconfirmed reports that HBO was filming in and around Winnipeg earlier this year.
We will keep you updated as and when more information on this reported project comes to light.
