With the announcement that Kenny Omega is taking some time away from New Japan Pro Wrestling, I thought now would be a good time reflect on one of the best weapons in his arsenal, the mighty V-Trigger. Several times a match, The Cleaner will bust out this face-breaking knee strike to the head to immediately ground his foes, and here is a quick look at fifteen of my favourites.
15. Vs. Juice Robinson: Destruction in Kobe 2017
Even when it doesn’t land perfectly, it still looks devastating.
14. Vs. Tomohiro Ishii: New Japan Cup 2017
If a kick doesn’t work, try a V-Trigger.
13.Vs. Jay White: New Beginning in Sapporo 2018
The V-Trigger isn’t confined to a ring.
12. Vs. Kazuchika Okada: Wrestle Kingdom 11
A six-star V-Trigger.
11. Vs. Tomohiro Ishii: Wrestling Dontaku 2017
It’s even strong enough to take down a moving fridge.
10. Vs. Kazuchika Okada: Dominion 2017
I feel very sorry for Okada’s face for having to take that knee so many times.
9. Vs. Tetsuya Naito: G1 Climax 2018
Watch any match these two have had, their chemistry together is insane.
8. Vs. Kazuchika Okada: G1 Climax 2017
Simple yet absolutely punishing.
7. Vs. Kota Ibushi: G1 Climax 2018
Even against somebody he loves, Kenny doesn’t hold back.
6. Vs. Juice Robinson: Destruction in Kobe 2017
Juice’s face just makes this one.
5. Vs. Tetsuya Naito: G1 Climax 2017
V-Trigger straight into your home!
4. Vs. Hangman Page: Wrestling Dontaku 2018
3. Vs. Kazuchika Okada: Dominion 2018
2. Vs. Kazuchika Okada: Dominion 2018
This one gives you a close-up view of how painful that move must be.
- Vs. Jay White: New Beginning in Sapporo 2018
The speed, height and distance on this one is staggering.
