There will always be speculation about big stars who work for companies other than WWE going to WWE. It’s been a topic of conversation around Kenny Omega for a couple years now - sometimes fueled by the current IWGP Heavyweight Champion himself.
Speculation about The ‘E coming after Omega, The Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes with big money offers as soon as possible is already out there. So Kenny taking a moment while promoting New Japan’s G1 Special in San Francisco event on Jim Ross’ latest podcast to talk WWE will raise eyebrows (and is another example of Omega stirring the pot himself).
Here’s what he had to say ahead of the show this Saturday (July 7), which will be headlined by Kenny vs. Cody:
“When I think about the possibilities and stuff like that it does gets me excited. 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.
If I could work with Seth Rollins at some point in time that would be a lot of fun. The huge name amongst all that is AJ [Styles]. I’d love to work with him at some point. I’d like to be able to do it when I can still move, you know what I mean?”
