IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega is known to be one of the best wrestlers in the world to not be signed by WWE. The wrestler has won countless awards and Championships over his career and continues to be the focal point of any show he finds himself upon.
In the past, Omega has opened up on several occasions explaining various reasons as to why he doesn’t want to go to WWE. In talking with The Business Times, Omega discussed the latest reason why he hasn’t signed with the global phenomenon known as World Wrestling Entertainment.
As Omega explains, if he cared about money, he would’ve went to WWE a long time ago. Rather, he cares about showing the world what the future of professional wrestling is, and what it can be. Check out what he had to say:
“I am sort of very much a part of representing an alternative. If my motivation was money, I would already be in the WWE. I was down on the current product and I wanted to create a style and have matches that my friends, my family and other athletes could watch and enjoy. There’s a certain kind of-of wrestling fan that will only like a certain style. They think that’s the right way and that’s okay but I’m not trying to impress those people. Those people are already kind of set in their ways. I’m trying to open the world to a different style, what pro-wrestling has the potential to be.”
“Everyone has a choice to watch whatever they want. It’s okay to like both or other promotions too. When I was growing up, I thought there was only WWE. That’s it. One promotion in the world. And then as I grew up, I found that there’s local wrestling. There’s WCW, there’s ECW. In Mexico, there are the luchadores. And then finally, I realized there’s wrestling in Japan. I think for many people, they think there’s one giant promotion and that’s all that there is. It must be the best. But as they expand their palate and their horizons, they realize that, oh, there’s other wrestling out there. They might not necessarily like it more but it’s an option now. It’s cool that there are so many options for people all over the planet.”
