Kenny Omega On Choosing AEW Over WWE

During the latest All Elite Wrestling rally, Kenny Omega spoke with Dave Meltzer and explained why he signed with AEW over WWE.

“I felt like I needed to go to a place where I could do more, and Japan will always be a home to me and I’m always going to be back. In fact, that’s the next destination for me, I’m going back to Japan. It’s not for wrestling, it’s just for personal life. I’m working with ESPN doing the video game thing, so I’ll be there for Evil Japan.”

”Japan is still going to have a place in my heart, a place in my life but AEW, for me, or even WWE, kinda seemed like the next step. [With] potential dream matches and all that, and sort of using the new platform, not necessarily a better one, or a bigger one or whatever. I just wanted a new platform to reach new people, to use my voice and my unique way of telling stories and all of that. I wanted just to change the stage that I had been performing on.”

“The most surprising thing to me was just how accommodating and how cool it was to discuss, you know, future with WWE. I didn’t think they’d ever be in the running. I was like ‘yeah, I’ll hear you guys out’ but I didn’t think it’d be good because everyone was telling me, well, what to expect.”

”I have nothing but great things to say about them, but in the end, AEW was the best thing for me and, you know, it’s the most exciting choice I’ve made in my career.”
