Triple H confirmed to ESPN.com that WWE is interested in pursuing Kenny Omega.

"As far as a Kenny Omega goes, I'm just interested in talent, period," Levesque told ESPN on a call to promote WWE's United Kingdom Championship tournament, which airs live on the WWE Network at 8 p.m. BST, Saturday and Sunday. "If somebody is talented as a performer and they wanna come work for the WWE, if they wanna come to the largest platform in the world where they can truly show what they do off on a global basis, then WWE is the choice for them. If they wanna come work for us and they're very talented, then I'm interested in talking to them, and that's across the board.

"To me, anytime anybody questions me on a talent -- Am I interested in them? -- the fact that you're questioning me on them means that person is probably pretty talented, so, yes, I'm interested."

Omega raised eyebrows when he had one of the best matches in pro wresting history at Wrestle Kingdom 11 with Kazuchika Okada last week and then announced afterwards he was stepping away from New Japan Pro Wrestling.

While Triple H talks about a general interest in talent, WWE has made a targeted effort to sign all of NJPW’s top stars and did just that in acquiring AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows and Shinsuke Nakamura.

It all goes back to when WWE and NJPW were negotiating about NJPW being shown on the WWE Network, which all fell apart and NJPW of course launching their own streaming service.
