It’s been rumored that the Kenny Omega has been on his way to the WWE for…a few years now. However, the NJPW star has stayed away from the company, instead opting to work with NJPW and Ring of Honor.
In a recent interview with The Business Times, the IWGP Heavyweight Champion explained why he hasn’t joined the WWE.
I’m sort of very much a part of representing an alternative. If my motivation was money, I’d already be in the WWE. I was down on the current product and I wanted to create a style and have matches that my friends and family and other athletes could watch and enjoy.
There’s a certain kind of wrestling fan that will only like a certain style. They think that’s the right way and that’s okay but I’m not trying to impress those people. Those people are already kind of set in their ways.
I’m trying to open the world to a different style, what pro-wrestling has the potential to be.
Omega also talked about working with the Young Bucks and the New Day at E3 earlier this year, all the promotions out there besides the WWE, and learning to speak Japanese. You can read the full article here.
