Kenny Omega: I would rather be the legend that never stepped foot in WWE.

New Japan's Kenny Omega discusses his decision to stay with New Japan instead of pursuing a career in WWE, the skills that separate and elevate him above the alleged elite in wrestling, and his historic battle for the IWGP championship Wednesday at Wrestle Kingdom 11.

The air filled with sadness and grief when sorrow sang softly and sweet.

Well, good luck with that, because it isn't possible with WCW dead.

Just as well, he's too much of a goof ball for me. When I watch the way he acts, there's part of me that starts to understand why WWE scripts people.

With NJPW and the indies in general paying well, I can see it. The WWE is no longer a must like it had been for about 15 years.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

My how things change. From last summer:

Quote:
["I have spoken with the heads at NXT, and they've all said, 'If you want to come down, let us know–the second your visa is in place, you're on TV the next week. I thought that was really cool of them to say and I appreciate they recognize that I'd add some value to their product, so I always kept that in my mind as an option. But this is going back to my Deep South days–I still haven't quite shown them what I can do on my own, and that's what I think this year is going to do for me."

I guess someone has to take that spot since Sting and AJ did come. Is Omega even the biggest name out there. I only here geeks here talk about him.

He's the biggest star outside of the E. So yeah.

Re: Kenny Omega: I would rather be the legend that never stepped foot in WWE.

Kenny Omega is the greatest talent outside of WWE and is a clear main event level talent. I hope he does come to WWE one day but I respect his decision if he doesn't.

EDIT: Man, Kenny Omega is a freakin beast. I know this is partly kayfabe since he is in character almost 100% of the time during interviews but there is no one else out there brave enough and confident enough to say what he says.

Quote:
“I’m eating, breathing, and s----ing wrestling right now,” said Omega. “When I’m waking up in bed in the morning and my bones and my joints are aching—and I know that I’m not ‘old’ old, but I know there is a lot of younger talent floating around their roster—I’m wondering, ‘Why in the hell are these guys not rising up? Why are they not doing what it takes to be better? Are they so happy to be a cog in the WWE machine that they’re just happy to be where they are? Are they just satisfied to see WWE as the name on their paycheck every week? Why can I keep getting better and pushing the envelope to have these ‘Matches of the Year,’ but no one else can even come close?’ AJ Styles has been great, but he’s been great forever. Why is there no one else?”

“Sometimes I feel like there is no hope,” continued Omega. “There are guys that will get good real quick, and then they’ll stay that way—they’re happy to have a job and they’re scared to lose that job on top of it. Everyone is afraid to stand out, everyone is afraid to make history. They just want to be a normal motherf----- in wrestling, being a wrestler, collecting a paycheck, then telling their friends, ‘I’m a ‘WWE Superstar.’ For me, that’s the worst s--- ever.

“I would rather be the legend that never stepped foot in WWE but was better than every single one of them and did something that none of those guys could do in their prime or could ever do if they left WWE and tried. No one is going to win ten ‘matches of the year’ in Japan, no one could. I’ve already won ten. No one could go from WWE and win one – if you did, you’d have to have a better match than me, and that isn’t going to happen. That’s the kind of pride I bring to my work. AJ is the closest guy who could do it, but I’m talking about their roster as a whole. It’s just not going to happen. That’s not just me saying that because I’m a cocky prick. That’s me saying it as a challenge because I’m pushing the barrier every single day. I’ll take all my matches against WWE’s best matches, I’ll put it up against Ring of Honor’s best matches, or whatever promotion you want, and I guarantee people will be more entertained with my matches than theirs. That is the attitude I need to carry with me. If I lose my confidence, then I’ll lose my way. And yes, I’m saying controversial things, but I’m not purposely saying them just to be controversial. I’m just one of the only guys to be speaking my true feelings.”
