IWGP United States champ Kenny Omega says there’s nobody in WWE on his level — and that’s why he believes Chris Jericho is coming to Japan to face him in a match at Wrestle Kingdom 12.

Omega spoke about their upcoming encounter during the WK12 press conference on Monday morning and said he’s been looking for a challenger like Y2J since the day he won the belt.

Kenny says he respected Jericho’s career path and always thought he’d end his career in WWE the same way. However, as he got older and wiser, his dream changed. Kenny says he now wants to be a star through New Japan and help them expand into America.

“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.”

When a reporter asked about WWE, the 34-year-old responded: “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.” This doesn’t apply to Jericho though, because Omega says he’s been in multiple companies and leaves WWE whenever.

    You know, in many ways I remember, and re watched Jericho’s NJPW/WCW matches. Omega is this generation Jericho. As far as WWE, Louis, it’s not that they don’t have the talent, their boss sees, and always saw the matches secondary to the B.S. for weeks on end before the matches on PPV. If you would watch Jericho in NJPW, it was all match there, he really shined there. Even in WCW after was much crappier. I’m sorry.
