Kenny Omega Is Staying With NJPW

Quote:
As far as Omega goes, on 1/9, he signed his new contract so it is official he’s with New Japan through January 31, 2019, so he won’t be in the Royal Rumble this year (or next year), or WrestleMania, which no doubt won’t keep people from speculating on his role in those shows daily.

Re: Kenny Omega Is Staying With NJPW

it's a slight shame for me as a bit of a WWE mark but I know deep down that the initial excitement would have died after a while so as a long term thing this is probably for the best (if he made a 1 time appearance at the rumble I would still so hard tho)

Re: Kenny Omega Is Staying With NJPW

He's already being advertised for SCOH in April and the "All In" show in September. Plus they did nothing at WK or NYD to indicate he would be leaving. So, no surpirse. Never thought he would be leaving this year.

2019 is the year to watch out for, IMO. The Bucks will be free agents then and if he's already had his match with Ibushi and gotten an IWGP title reign, I could see him making the jump.

But for now, let's just enjoy him in NJPW for another great year.

Re: Kenny Omega Is Staying With NJPW

All NJPW has to do to stop Kenny from fucking off to the WWE is forever tease the match with Ibushi and never book him to win the IWGP Championship.

Re: Kenny Omega Is Staying With NJPW

He made the right choice.

There is a lot of stuff coming up this year for him. Another feud with Okada, the company coming back to the US, the ROH Supercard, the All In event, etc.

He can come to WWE whenever he wants, might as well ride this wave for as long as he can.

Plus there are very small rumblings out there right now that Punk may be returning for a one off match against Omega some time this year. Which would be HUGE.

Hype

Re: Kenny Omega Is Staying With NJPW

Well this is good. I think he's better off in NJPW anyways. No need for him to come to the E.

Re: Kenny Omega Is Staying With NJPW

That's great news. Honestly, I don't want to see any of my favourites waste away in WWE.

Re: Kenny Omega Is Staying With NJPW

Once his body starts to break down and it solely becomes about the money, maybe he'll go to WWE.

Re: Kenny Omega Is Staying With NJPW

Great news. Have you best year in New Japan, then go to WWE as a retirement tour. I need Ibushi vs Omega to happen.



All Time Favourites:
Kazuchika Okada, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Eddie Guerrero, Toshiaki Kawada, Daniel Bryan, Kensuke Sasaki & Shinya Hashimoto

I write things sometimes. Always Wrestling related, obviously.
