Kenny Omega says it would be a missed opportunity if he doesn’t sign with WWE

Kenny Omega

Kenny Omega is considered one of the biggest wrestlers of the indie circuit and it’s a general topic of discussion whether or not he will ever sing with WWE.

While whether or not he will sign with the company will be revealed in the future, it appears that Kenny himself is also interested in going to the promotion.

Jim Ross recently shared a preview of his interview with Omega where the current IWGP World Champion said that it would be a missed opportunity if he doesn’t sign with WWE:

Every promotion has so many good guys there’s no way I would have a bad time going almost anywhere because the depth to the talent is so deep. WWE right now has a very great collection of talent. I would feel like it’s a missed opportunity if I couldn’t work with them at some point.

    Ok ill agree with 90% of your counter argument, however…

    KO hasnt been the same since he lost the Universal Title to Goldberg, hes not the same main event guy he was now doing mid card runs etc. Same for Balor.

    Same for Ambrose whos arguably the most over of the shield group yet for whatever reason they just wont pull the trigger on him

    Kevin Owens? You mean former Universal champion who has been in numerous main event feuds and is constantly being used in high profile matches? Or Dean Ambrose who has been world champion, and was constantly in high profile matches?

    Sami Zayne was never going to be a main eventer. Where did he main event outside WWE? He was a comedy luchador for godsake. Aries I will give you though.

    I agree they drop the ball with many (Neville etc), but the odds now of anyone from outside getting over is way above where they have been in the past. With Punk and Bryan getting over huge, it meant that WWE could no longer turn a blind eye to it with everyone.

    Go back 10 years and I would have whole heartedly agreed with you, but not anymore. I would say there is at least a 50/50 chance of people getting over.

    Add Rollins to the list I mentioned earlier as well.

    You cannot argue that the likes of Owens (external talent) are being ruined when he has held more titles than a guy like Strowman, who is 100% WWE made. A guy who if you go back 10 or more years would have probably been a multi time world champion by now due to Vinces love of big sweaty men.

    It’s a crapshoot, but the chances of indy guys getting over have to be at least worth a shot, or else Omega will always have that “what if?” part marked on his resume.

    Tell that to The Club (as you said), Sami Zayne, Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe (he may never even get that far as he doesnt have the “look”) Austin Aries, Dean Ambrose and the like

    Yeah ok theres been a select few to make it such as the ones you mentioned but the main reasoning for that is the fans not the WWE themselves.

    In the past yes, but these days it is far more of an open book. Yes the likes of Gallows and Anderson has ended up going that route, but with the likes of AJ Styles, CM Punk and Daniel Bryan all making it to the top (although we all know the hurdles they have had to jump), and still the possibility of Finn Balor, Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura making it.

    It is certainly a better time for outside talent to come in.


    AJ Styles, Nakamura, & Samoa Joe, all non-WWE creations at the top of the WWE making way more (double in some cases) money than they did before they joined. Tell me again how Vince wastes guys he didn’t create?

    I am not saying they couldn’t be ‘used’ better but the narative that WWE kills non-wwe creations died about 5 years ago.

    If you want to say WWE might drop the ball on Omega, well that is true for anyone who puts their name on WWE contract. Creative is the main WWE problem, I agree with that.

    But lets stop pretending that Dave Meltzer is always right, WWE buries non-WWE creations, Macho slept with Stephanie and that there were 2 Ultimate Warriors. They are all false. Also, throw in Hulk held guys back and Triple H buried anyone that threatened his spot….wait that last one is probably true.

  • Soulshroude

    Agreed. Vince has the unfortunate reputation for burying talent of which he has no “trademark” creation for. This might become a coin toss to see if he does. But, does Omega want this kind of 50/50 pressure on his head?

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    I can wholeheartedly say no i dont want Omega in the WWE. not that i dont thing he can cut it because he sure as hell can, but its more of what will happen if he did.

    Hes not something vince created and therefore will most likely suffer the consequences. History has shown us just how petty Vince is when it comes to “outside” talent bought into his promotion, and Omega would just be another one of those guys joining that list
