Tyson Smith (October 16, 1983) is a Canadian professional wrestler better known by the ring name Kenny Omega. He is an executive vice president of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) where he is also signed as a performer.

Career

Early life

Tyson Smith was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on October 16, 1983, growing up in the suburb of Transcona. Smith played ice hockey as a goaltender and had jobs at IGA and Costco. Smith would become interested in professional wrestling after watching Saturday Night's Main Event, his favourite show. A career in professional wrestling opened up for Smith after one of his friends began training for the Top Rope Championship Wrestling (TRCW) promotion. Omega would also begin training with the promotion under Bobby Jay. Smith would make his debut in February 2000, becoming known as Kenny Omega. Omega would initially have a surfer gimmick but it was later developed into an otaku gimmick.

Independents and WWE (2001-2011)

After his time in Top Rope Championship Wrestling, Kenny Omega debuted for another Winnipeg promotion, Premier Championship Wrestling (PCW). During his time in PCW, Omega won the PCW Heavyweight Championship and the PCW Tag Team Championship with Rawskillz. On October 17, 2004, Omega wrestled on the National Wrestling Alliance's 56th Anniversary Show in a loss to NWA TNA X Division Champion Petey Williams.

Omega would later attend a World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) try-out, before he was sent to WWE's developmental promotion Deep South Wrestling (DSW) in October. However, in August 2006, Omega requested his release, later criticising the promotion and its trainers. Following his release, Omega considered a career in mixed martial arts but eventually returned to professional wrestling, armed with a new and unique move set. Omega would also spend time in Jersey All Pro Wrestling (JAPW), winning the JAPW Heavyweight Championship and the JAPW Light Heavyweight Championship.

DDT Pro Wrestling (2008-2014)

In 2006, after watching Kota Ibushi wrestle in DDT Pro Wrestling, Omega was enthralled. As a result, Omega made a video of him wrestling a DDT-esque match. DDT would invite Omega to work for them, with Omega making his DDT debut on August 4, 2008. Omega wrestled Ibushi in a Hardcore Two Out of Three Falls Match on August 6, which Ibushi won.

On July 24, 2011, Omega wrestled Haruka, a nine year old girl, to a time limit draw. The match would go viral, however, Omega would also receive death threats. Omega later revealed he had been selected to wrestle Haruka due to his safeness in the ring.

On October 23, Omega defeated KAI to win the AJPW World Junior Heavyweight Championship, holding the title until May 27, 2012.
