• Kenny Omega Reveals The Main Reason Behind Possibly Joining WWE
Former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega’s status is currently the hottest topic of conversation among fans on Social Media.
As we noted last night, Omega announced during an interview with Tokyo Sports that he’s done with New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Below is what he said during the interview (please note that the following quotes are translated from Japanese):
“The game was like a battle to decide the main character as I thought now.The win is righteous. It is a bit overpowering, but what I’ve been trying hard is the main character It was only to become an enemy … it was frustrating, of course it was bad that I was defeated, all my own responsibility, looking back at the Tanahashi battle.
There is no place to put in now and it is better not to be in New Japan. The New Japan also became the era of Tanahashi. It can not be a useful role of Tanahashi’s New Japan. Of course the Tanahashi are superior, I do not think it is strong either So, someday I would like to do if there ‘s a rematch, but for now it is better not to stay in the ring for a while, it’ s not just New Japan, thinking a little rest and making a different strategy told.
If I go to WWE, the fans there will be pleased, and the fans there will be pleased if I go to AEW. I want to be a place where Kenny is going to be happy. I am not there, I will be gone, but as the contract with New Japan still remains until the end of this month I avoided saying I do not know what will happen myself .”

During a recent appearance on Wrestling Observer Radio, Omega revealed the main reason behind possibly going to WWE.
Below is what he said:
“The main reason I would go to WWE is because I would love to have a match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania. If I’m being truthful, before AJ hangs it up, and before I start to degenerate as an athlete, I really want to have a big match with him on the biggest stage possible, so that is a career goal of mine.”
