The hottest new brand of sports enterta- sorry, I mean professional wrestling – is AEW, and it’s a company largely made up of unashamed nerds. Kenny Omega has a moveset largely named for famous games, and his love of Undertale has been well-established. Yet it was still a surprise to see a lengthy Undertale tribute complete with the sounds of Megalovania play on last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
Omega’s standard entrance video was interrupted with a dialogue scene in the style of Undertale – with custom graphics and authentic talking noises – where Sans offers to tag in. In keeping with the pre-Halloween spirit, Omega made his way to the ring in full Sans cosplay while Megalovania played in the arena.
The video implies a whole lot more than just a goofy Halloween crossover, too. The imagery makes reference to Omega’s former friend and probably-not-platonic partner in the Golden Lovers, Kota Ibushi, who’s now under contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling – and that company’s colours and logos appear in villainous context here.
