While taking part in a videogame panel for Capcom at the Tokyo Game Show, fans have spotted what appear to be bite marks allegedly inflicted on the star by Ace Steel.
At All Out, Kenny Omega completed his triumphant return to action as he and The Young Bucks defeated Hangman Adam Page and The Dark Order to become the inaugural AEW World Trios Champions.
However, within hours, things had turned sour for the Best Bout Machine as he found himself embroiled in a physical fight that came after CM Punk’s used the post-show media scrum to take aim at Colt Cabana, Adam Page, and EVPs The Young Bucks and Omega himself.
Several reports have since suggested that Kenny Omega was bitten by Ace Steel during the fight with one story claiming that Omega had tried to split up the fracas after ensuring CM Punk’s dog Larry was taken to safety.
Now, Omega has made an appearance on a Resident Evil panel for Capcom TV at the Tokyo Game Show. Twitter user Rin posted screenshots of the show and eagle-eyed fans have spotted what appears to be a bruise on his arm left by the alleged biting incident (see right picture).
Rin also joked that the translator assigned to Kenny Omega’s job was in jeopardy as the star spoke fluent Japanese throughout.

This speculation was corroborated by Fightful, who on September 16th had reported a source as saying the marks would likely be visible on Omega’s left forearm for “weeks” after the incident.
“Those we’ve spoken to say that the bite marks on Omega’s left forearm would be hard to avoid being seen if Omega was photographed any time in the weeks following the situation. We were told it was “unmistakable,” that it was a bite.”
While Kenny Omega was pulled from the AEW event at the Tokyo Game Show, he has made his presence known during his trip to Japan, with footage of him touring the SEGA Studios, meeting up with his Golden Lovers partner Kota Ibushi, and visiting the offices of apparel company HAOMING.
