Re: Kenny Omega: I would rather be the legend that never stepped foot in WWE.
He says stuff like this all the time. I mean, good on him. Iím glad heís been able to become a star without WWE and prove you can do it. But this is the same guy when JR asked him would he consider going to WWE, he said absolutely. Heíll be there one day, whether or not itís in a year, 2 years, 3 years, etc.
Whenever heís accomplished all that he feels he can in Japan, heíll be there. I really have no doubt about that. So, I donít know if heís just saying this because he truly feels it. I donít know if heís just saying this to get people talking. I donít know if itís a little of both. I havenít followed him enough to know.
But in terms of the OPís quote, itís just not possible anymore. Sure, he could be a legend in Japan. But in terms wrestling worldwide just staying in NJPW? I donít see it. Wrestling just isnít as hot as it once was and probably never will be again. There is no WCW or even ECW. And although there are several indies doing well, theyíll never have that kind of legacy that those 2 companies did. But heís not going to be the next Sting.
