As Kenny Omega noted a few day sago, he says that he is taking time off from Japan. The presumption is that he will be back in Japan in several weeks while he takes some time to heal up from his awesome match with Kazuchika Okada at Wrestle Kingdom 11 but that has not stopped the speculation about a potential future with WWE and John Cena’s Instagram post has added more fuel to those rumors.
However, I should note that Omega’s NJPW contract expires on 1/31 and he is on WWE’s radar and there’s a bunch of people in WWE that want him. The Royal Rumble takes place on 1/29 so he couldn’t appear there even if he chose to sign with them.
Omega has said publicly that he is not interested in going to WWE but plenty of wrestlers have said that before and then the money offer was too good to turn down. It’s worth nothing that New Japan has plans to expand internationally this year and they have announced that they will be doing shows in the United States. Omega would be the guy that would be the best face of the company for their expansion so you’d think that he would get a really good money offer to stay with them. On the flip side, WWE would probably have even more interest in him if it means that they could slow down NJPW’s international expansion.
