Kenny Omega comments on his future in wrestling amidst WWE rumors

During an appearance on Renee Paquette’s podcast, Kenny Omega addressed his future in wrestling amidst rumors of WWE being interested in signing him

“Sometimes the first thing that pops into your mind is probably how you really feel. The first thing that came to my mind wasn’t, you know, a venue. It wasn’t a title. It wasn’t some kind of accolade. I feel like whatever it is that 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 to help push them into a certain direction that can lead to something good for them career wise down the road. That is where I’d like to see myself. I don’t feel like I have too many goals or aspirations on my own anymore.”

“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, like am I being ungrateful almost? So those thoughts even 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 Technical Wrestler of the Year Award, or even even throw like a random thing like boy, wouldn’t it be nice if I could somehow win PWI 500? It got to a point where I was just kind of creating goals to achieve just to have something, and I guess as the checklist started to fill up, and I’m so thankful and I feel so fortunate that I was able to, it became so much less about me and became more about, well I’ve got this resume now, I know that I’m breaking down, and I know that there are people that have 10 years on me or 15 years on me. They have all this time to work with and they can much easier, with much less of a struggle, get to where I am today, and maybe I can save them some mental anguish. Maybe I can save them from being away from their family for a couple more years if I can help them a little bit. That’s just sort of the position that I feel that I’m in right now.” (quotes courtesy of
