Kenny Omega On NXT Talent: “They’d Be In The Dark Match”

AEW Vice President Kenny Omega recently spoke to Sportskeeda about what has been dubbed the  “Wednesday Night War” between AEW and NXT.

It’s fair to say that he doesn’t see NXT as being in the same league as himself and his fellow AEW stars, claiming that NXT stars would be in the dark match if booked on the same show as him.

“You can call it a war if you want, it’s just like… to me it’s like we’re in a completely different kind of business,” Omega said.

“What they’re doing is different than what we’re doing and it’s hard to say you’re going to war with people that I call my friends, and yet we are going to war, and yet when I sit back and look at the grand picture, it’s like I’m going to war with dudes that if we were on the same show together, the same show and the same promotion…let’s pretend there were no wars, let’s pretend there were no promotions, let’s pretend there’s just one promotion.

“If these guys were on the same show as me, they’d be in the dark match. They’d be in the opening match for my main event match.”

“You’re going to call that a war? You’re going to call that competition? Go ahead. Maybe it’s fun for you to do, that’s cool, but we’re different planets and you’re going to see that right away when you see 10,000+ arenas sold out, you’re gonna see smiles on fans’ faces, and you’re gonna see real stars, not developmental talent, but real stars appearing on your television sets every week.”

AEW debuts on TNT on October 2 from 8pm to 10pm ET.
