Kenny Omega Talks About What It Would Take To Get Him To Sign With WWE

Much talked about New Japan star Kenny Omega was on Taz's radio show recently and talked about where he is in his career right now and what it might take for him to sign with WWE.

He says that it's a factor that he came so close to winning the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, and it's also a factor that he came up short.

"I have come so far to almost having a complete career (in NJPW), do I end that now to pursue something else somewhere else?" Omega asked. "Now people are talking about me and now WWE is more receiving of using me in a way that I can contribute."

He says that money isn't something he's worried about. His place on the card is, though, as well as how he would be used.

"I don't want to just take a payday and collect a check. While I'm still healthy, while I still have ideas in this crazy head of mine, I want to contribute and I want to do things that are going to make wrestling fans happy and are going to make new people into wrestling fans that were wrestling fans before, I want to contribute in that manner. If a company like WWE were willing to use me in that manner, if they had good ideas for me and I had good ideas that jived with that, I would heavily consider that."
