Kenny Omega Comments On Wrestle Kingdom 12’s Main Event, NJPW Star On The Match WWE Couldn’t Put Together


– New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) star and IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega was recently interviewed by Yahoo! Japan. During the interview “The Cleaner” was asked which match he thinks should go on last at Wrestle Kingdom 12 next month. Omega stated that he believes Naito vs. Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship should go last since he couldn’t beat Okada for the title in the G1 Climax Finals:

– Jado was recently interviewed by NJPW to discuss his friend, Chris Jericho, taking on Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12. Jado also discussed NJPW being able to put on a match that WWE couldn’t. Check it out:

“I think his radar picked up that Kenny’s doing big things and that they’re from the same home town of Winnipeg, so he decided something had to happen,” Jado said. “Again, I thought that it’s really like him, to have the intuition to choose Kenny who’s on such a rise. And he did it on NJPW World so the whole world could see. He wanted to send that message, ‘I’m number one in Canada, and I’m number one in the world’. But I think this is a bigger topic in America than it is here. I mean, with this match, New Japan is doing something that WWE couldn’t hope to put together. There’s probably a lot of pissed off people over there right now [Laughs].”
