NJPW Star Kenny Omega Dreams Of High-Stakes Match With AJ Styles
August 2, 2020
New Japan Pro Wrestling main eventer Kenny Omega sat down for an interview with Live Audio Wrestling recently, and the juiciest nugget he mentioned was that he dreams of a high-stakes match with AJ Styles.
Omega will be wrestling Kazuchika Okada next weekend at NJPW Dominion. It will be a rematch of their epic Tokyo Dome match from WrestleKingdom on January 4th.
Afterwards, Omega will play a big role at the G1 USA specials from Los Angeles on July 1st and 2nd.
Here are the highlights of the interview with transcription provided by Ian Carey of SeScoops.com:
On his future goals in wrestling: Right now, I’m 100% content with where I am because I would love to be the driving force behind New Japan in the global market. However, generally, I’m just guided by how I feel, where my heart’s at and where I’m needed, if that makes sense. I’m not gonna lie, there are things that I haven’t been able to do that I would love to do at some point in time. One of those things is, I really feel I need to have a high stakes main event with AJ [Styles]. I really feel I have to. I’m not sure where it will be, I’m just saying that it’s always in the back of my mind.
On his rematch with Kazuchika Okada at NJPW Dominion: Much like I do with all of my matches, I’m not really one to ‘rinse, wash and repeat’ things. I think that rather than trying to force fans into drawing a direct comparison to [ask themselves] which match is better, I would rather give them two completely different stories that they can appreciate on their own. So whether they like the first one better or not, I want the stories to be so different from each other that you can watch them apart and have something that you like [about both of them]. That’s my goal.
