AEW Superstar, Kenny Omega recently spoke with Post Wrestling about his future working in Japan and why he wasn’t at the G1 Supercard.
Why he didn’t work the G1 Supercard:
“I would very much love to be a part of everything, not only [the G1 Climax in Dallas, Texas], but the Madison Square Garden show, the G1, all of those things, but then I’m burning the candle at both ends, and on top of that, sometimes, there may be a conflict of interest.”
If he will go to New Japan soon:
“I mean, I could go there, but there are all these storylines in place and I think New Japan, with how they book so long-term, they have a direction and a plan and knowing that we have our hands completely full, overly full, with what we have to do – it’s a huge undertaking – it’s probably best that we focus on our own things for now and just know that on both sides, the door is mutually open.”
On returning to Japan down the line:
“I’d love to keep coming back till I take my last bump, to Japan. But there are things that I feel like I can still do and that I even have a responsibility to do in professional wrestling, and that requires me to take the next step, which is AEW and pursue that to its full extent.”
