Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho are set to tear the roof off of the Tokyo Dome on January 4th at Wrestle Kingdom 12. But whether or not The Cleaner is victorious and keeps his IWGP North American Heavyweight Championship is beside the point because he’s certainly ready for anything at this point.
In a press conference to hype the event, Omega held nothing back when speaking about his intentions in pro wrestling when compared to what the world’s pro wrestling scene can offer a guy like him.
“There’s a ceiling here. You can only get so famous. Pro wrestling can only get so popular. My dream is to break that ceiling. It always has been.” He continued, “Are we only big in Japan now? No. Everyone knows who we are. Everyone knows New Japan, but there’s still that ceiling. There’s still the image that we can never compete. Watch me compete.”
He had little to hold back when it comes to what he thinks about the WWE roster either as he plainly said he is on another level than them.
“WWE, in general — you can quote me on this I don’t care — everyone there is so below me. No one can put together a performance like me from there. Anyone that’s copying anyone is copying me. I’m the trend right now.”
Kenny Omega did note that this doesn’t apply to Chris Jericho because The Ayatollah Of Rock n Rolla has been with several pro wrestling companies and leaves WWE when he feels like it.
