AEW Star, Kenny Omega recently spoke with TSN’s Jay and Dan about a range of topics, where he admitted now would have been a good time to join WWE.
On what his career would look like without Japan:
“It would be over. It would be ballgame. I don’t know what I’d be doing,” Omega said before adding he was also involved in MMA at the time but still wanted to be a performer. I wanted to be entertaining. I wanted to put on a show for everyone…I felt that my [MMA] matches were boring so I decided to give it one more kick at the can.”
On now being a good time to join WWE:
“At that stage of my career, probably not. 10 or 12 years later, yeah, now would be a good time. I was actually considering going there earlier in the year, but AEW just seemed right for me. I always get really excited at the idea of having full creative control and just doing new things,” said Omega.To me that’s exciting as a performer. I felt that was probably what was best for me, as of right now.”

On his previous WWE experience:
“It just wasn’t for me,” Omega said of the WWE. “I learned a lot of things that helped me take the next step after I left WWE. I had always felt when I had full creative control of my own person and own ideas that I could be the true me and show my full potential.”
