AEW superstar Kenny Omega was asked at yesterday’s Starrcast III event whether or not he would be wrestling at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s WrestleKingdom 14 this upcoming January, the same event that Omega headlined one year before with Hiroshi Tanahashi. Omega states that it most likely isn’t going to happen, and even claims that he has nothing left for NJPW.
Well, I’m gonna give you my best Mr. Burns impression: ‘When pigs fly.’ No, you know what, to be honest, you know how I am. You guys know exactly how I am. [Sarcastically] I’m just sitting at home in my office looking at the phone, I’m just watching it on a daily basis and I’m losing a lot of sleep over this one and, uh, to be honest, it’s not looking too bright. So Wrestle Kingdom 14, who knows maybe, I will, maybe I won’t, probably not. They got good guys and I’ve wrestled all of them, most of them, probably all of them. They are all great experiences, great matches. I got nothing left there, nothing left of that place.
Omega would go on to talk about his upcoming appearance for DDT Pro, a promotion that The Cleaner worked at prior to his NJPW run.
A lot of people say, ‘Kenny, that’s career suicide to go back doing comedy matches this late into your career.’ Hey, it’s not going to be a comedy match, let me tell you. It’s going to be something that I believe in day one, that’s mixed matches. Mixed matches can be exciting, they can be beautiful, and they can be something the likes you have never seen. It’s kind of the same vision that The Young Bucks have for tag-team wrestling, in general, I feel the same about mixed matches. That it’ll be a step, hopefully in the right direction for all of mixed match wrestling, which other places haven’t done quite as nicely lately. I’m really excited for that and hopefully, it opens the door for something in the future as well with DDT Pro-Wrestling. A lot of great guys. Hopefully you guys will get to know some of them in your future as well.
