Kenny Omega addressed his future during an appearance on The Taz Show earlier this week. He noted he has not signed any contracts but that he is accepting feelers. Money is not his primary motive.
"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.
"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."
The rumor on Omega is that his contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling isn’t up until Jan. 31, 2017. Word beginning to make rounds is that he may have already re-signed. We’ll continue to follow and update as more information becomes available.
