Kenny Omega hasn’t wrestled for New Japan Pro Wrestling since January … but it doesn’t sound like he’s done with the company just yet.
Omega told John Pollock in an interview for Post Wrestling that he’d love to continue performing for New Japan, but his current obligations as a roster member and an Executive Vice President of All Elite Wrestling take priority.
“I would very much love to be a part of everything,” Kenny said when asked why he hadn’t been asked to be a part of New Japan’s upcoming G1 Climax show in Dallas. “Not just that, but the Madison Square Garden show — the G1 — you know all those things. But then I’m burning the candle on both ends.”
Kenny also says he doesn’t want to disrupt any of the promotion’s current storylines, but hinted that a return could happen sometime in the future. “New Japan, with how they book so long term, they have a direction and a plan. And knowing that we have our hands completely full with what we have to do — it’s a huge undertaking,” he said. “It’s probably best that we just focus on our own things for now and just know that, on both sides, the door is mutually open.”
