IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega was interviewed by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. During the interview, Omega was asked about the fantasy aspect of facing Superstars currently employed in WWE.

This led to Omega providing Barrasso and the wrestling community with an insight into what his personal perspective on the matter is. Omega revealed that he likes the aspect of a run in WWE and facing opponents employed by them more than the actual thought of wrestling there.

Omega has the belief that if he can’t be the current Omega he is in New Japan Pro Wrestling when he would theoretically go to WWE, then all the fantasy match-ups and scenarios people dream for would become a reality, but wouldn’t live up to the hype wrestling fans and personalities create.

Check out what he had to say:


“I realize that there are people that are employed by that promotion that I could have a good match with. There are people within that promotion where, if we had that said match, could generate multiple communities celebrating the performance. That’s what happened when the Bucks and I did the gaming battle with the New Day. If I wrestled one of their top guys, people would watch that match in the anticipation of something great happening.

“But right now, it’s all, ‘What if?’ fantasy scenarios. It’s going to stay that way until it happens, if it ever even happens, because you never know what type of limitations are going to be placed on those matches. If Kenny Omega is allowed to be Kenny Omega, then those matches would be really special. Would I be allowed to be myself, the real Kenny Omega, within that realm? In a way, it’s almost more exciting to think about what it could be rather than see what it would be.”
