Two days after lighting the internet on fire with his Wrestle Kingdom 11 performance, Kenny Omega took to Twitter with an announcement on his future:
That led many to theorize that Omega may be headed back to WWE.
Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer noted that if WWE “wants” Omega, they will make it happen. He detailed if WWE puts $750k down per year on a three-year deal, he doesn’t see top stars such as Omega turning that down.
And if there were any thoughts on Omega debuting at the Royal Rumble on January 29, there’s a slim to no-way-it’s-happening chance as his contract expires on January 31:
Thoughts on Omega possibly jumping to WWE come after his comments about others happy to become a “cog” in the WWE machine, per SI:
“I’m eating, breathing, and s—-ing wrestling right now,” said Omega. “When I’m waking up in bed in the morning and my bones and my joints are aching—and I know that I’m not ‘old’ old, but I know there is a lot of younger talent floating around their roster—I’m wondering, ‘Why in the hell are these guys not rising up? Why are they not doing what it takes to be better? Are they so happy to be a cog in the WWE machine that they’re just happy to be where they are? Are they just satisfied to see WWE as the name on their paycheck every week? Why can I keep getting better and pushing the envelope to have these ‘Matches of the Year,’ but no one else can even come close?’ AJ Styles has been great, but he’s been great forever. Why is there no one else?”
Omega was in WWE developmental in Deep South Wrestling from 2005-2006 before bouncing back to the Indies.
Will we be seeing spots like these soon?
One can only hope.
