Kenny Omega Comments On WWE Rumors AEW

Kenny Omega’s four-year AEW contract was set to come to an end this February but was extended due to injury.

As previously reported, the extension is roughly nine months and will see Omega remain in AEW until at least November 2023.

That hasn’t stopped speculation of a move to WWE, though, with Omega reportedly being “open-minded” to the possibility of a move.

Omega himself has now commented on the rumors on The Sessions with Renee Paquette, saying:

“Sometimes, the first thing that pops into your mind is probably how you really feel.

“The first thing that came into my mind wasn’t a title, wasn’t some kind of accolade.

“I feel like whatever I can contribute to wrestling, I want to be able to help people in the next generation realize their potential as quick as possible or quicker than I was able to.

“If I can help give anyone advice or push them into a certain direction that can lead to something good for them, career-wise, down the road, that is where I like to see myself.

“I don’t feel like I have too many goals or aspirations of my own anymore.”

Paquette would ask Omega how that mindset weighs upon him, with Omega replying:

“I feel like, am I wasting my time here? Do I not even deserve my position if I’m not looking for some sort of measure of success for myself, am I being ungrateful?

“Those thoughts still fill my head a little bit because I felt that when I was motivated to win the G1, when I was motivated to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship or win the Match of the Year award or win Wrestler of the Year award or a random thing like ‘wouldn’t it be nice if I could win PWI 500.’

“It got to a point where I was kind of creating goals to achieve, just to have something.

“As the checklist started to fill up, and I’m so thankful and grateful that I was able to (achieve those things), it became so much less about me and became more about ‘well, I’ve got this resume now,’ and I know that I’m breaking down and I know there are people that have 10-15 years on me and they can much easier, and with much less of a struggle, get to where I am today and maybe I can save them some mental anguish or being away from their family a couple more years if I can help them. That’s the position I feel I’m in right now.”

It had been previously reported that WWE were confident that signing Kenny Omega was a possibility.

The report also notes that Omega and WWE had a positive relationship.
