NJPW Star Says ‘No’ to wwe.

on

The rumors of Kenny Omega joining WWE just aren’t stopping as we draw closer to the end of the Canadian wrestler’s New Japan Pro Wrestling contract. And it’s not just the numerous teases John Cena has posted on Instagram, but rather some of Omega’s recent comments on pro wrestling podcasts.

In the aftermath of Kenny Omega’s loss to IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada at NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 11 event on January 4, social media has been abuzz with talk that the 33-year-old Omega may be headed back to North America and joining the WWE. If these rumors are accurate, this would mark Kenny’s first time back in WWE after more than a decade; while he has never appeared on the company’s main roster, he did wrestle for its developmental promotions in 2005 and 2006, before asking for his release, disappointed with his time in the company.

Right after Omega lost a grueling 47-minute match to Okada at Wrestle Kingdom 11, 15-time WWE champion John Cena took to Instagram to seemingly tease Kenny Omega’s WWE arrival. This all began with a photo of Omega himself, and that was followed up by images that included one of South Park character Kenny, and one of video game character MegaMan; Omega’s Twitter handle is “KennyomegamanX,” and he has drawn a lot of influence from video games for his wrestling persona and moves.
