Kenny Omega Is Leaving the New Japan Pro-Wrestling



According to Tokyo Sports, Kenny Omega's time at New Japan Pro-Wrestling came to an end. Former IWGP Heavyweight Champion lost the belt at Wrestle Kingdom 13 earlier this week, and seems to be his last match for the company. The outlet says he will either be signing with All Elite Wrestling or WWE, although a decision has not yet been made.

"If I go to WWE, fans will be satisfied," said Omega. "If I go to the AEW, the fans will be happy. I want to be in a place where I'm going to be happy. "Anyway, the future looks bright for Omega. "The Cleaner" has established himself as one of the best wrestlers in the world, and has put some incredible matches. He told Tokyo Sports that his contract with NJPW will not end until the end of the month. "

See more about how Omega explained his output (translated by Chris Charlton):

"Reflecting on this, the Wrestle Kingdom 13 match was a struggle to decide the protagonist of New Japan … I take full responsibility for the defeat. There's no real place for me to fit in, so I better not be in [New Japan Pro-Wrestling]. I can not be there working with Tanahashi. I do not think he overcame me, I do not think he's better. If we can, I want to face it again. But I need time away, not just New Japan. "
