SO, KENNY OMEGA IS THE HOTTEST FREE AGENT IN PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING!

”The Cleaner” Kenny Omega appeared on the Taz Show yesterday and revealed that he’s a free-agent. He said that his New Japan contract runs out at the end of January and he is now evaluating his future. The former IWGP Intercontinental Champion further added that although he wasn’t actively talking to promotions, he was accepting feelers from other wrestling promotions/companies before taking the next step. Omega said that it wasn’t necessarily the money that would sway his mind because what he really wants to do is change the business of professional wrestling (aka sports-entertainment) in his own way.

According to Omega’s own words, it seemed like WWE have been among the promotions who have contacted him for a deal.

The Elite and Bullet Club member Kenny Omega was/is on WWE’s radar for quite awhile as per various reports from the past couple of years. It’s a well known fact.

In the main event of Wrestle Kingdom 11, Kenny Omega went toe-to-toe against ”The Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada in an attempt to dethrone Okada and capture the IWGP Heavyweight Championship in a match that got appreciated by wrestling fans and critics across the globe and was rated 6 stars out of 5 by Dave Meltzer. Omega after ending up on the losing end, he tweeted out a few days later that he was leaving ‘The Land of the Rising Sun’ Japan and is considering his future options, which sent WWE and Wrestling fans alike in a frenzy and immediately rumors surfaced across social media platforms and beyond of a possible Royal Rumble appearance.

During the interview, Kenny Omega added that WWE would be more accepting of a talent like himself and they would now use him to his full potential, while in the past this may not have been the notion. Omega further said that he doesn’t want to sign with WWE for a payday but, he wanted to do things that made wrestling fans happy and bring new fans into the world of pro wrestling. Finally, he signed off saying that if WWE felt the same way about him and his vision, he would seriously consider an offer from WWE.

Any physical interaction between the two box-office attractions before the big event at the Alamodome in San Antonio would be welcomed by the fans worldwide.

The premise of Brock Lesnar’s participation in the Rumble Match this year is retribution against Goldberg, who defeated him in just 86 seconds at the Survivor Series PPVHe appeared in the latest edition of Monday Night RAWwhere he cleared the ring filled with competitors such as Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Sami Zayn and Braun Strowman.

Goldberg has been more open to working a Lesnar-like schedule, so Wrestlemania 33 itself may not be his last appearance.

Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar is said to be one of the matches locked for Wrestlemania 33according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. So, his appearance will definitely be to further their storyline.

Goldberg has many potential feuds on his plate. Nonetheless, his appearance at the Rumble will definitely be to further set the tone of his WrestleMania bout against Brock Lesnar.

Ryback Calls John Cena a “Poison” to Pro Wrestling, Cena – Alex Riley Incident

0

Recently on the latest edition of Conversations with the Big Guy, show host and former WWE Superstar ‘The Big Guy’ Ryback pulled no punches while discussing ‘The Face that Runs the Place’ John Cena and Ryback’s perceived impact Cena has had on pro wrestling. Ryback is not afraid to speak his mind that’s for sure. Below is a quote from Ryback during the show:

“[John Cena] comes from that mentality, ‘well, we’re going to push one guy down your f***ing throats.’
No, you push who the crowd is behind. [John] has been poison to the wrestling industry. And again, this is my opinion, but I think I’m pretty accurate on this…I think he’s done so much harm for so long to new talent to getting over, breaking out, over there [in WWE].”

‘The Big Guy’ went on to reveal that he has blocked Cena on social media, and he addressed the subject of Cena and Alex Riley’s issues in the past saying the following about Cena’s treatment of ‘A-Ry’ Alex Riley:

“John would sit back there and bury Riley in front of everybody for no reason and Alex Riley is f***ing money and he was money from day one. Busted his ass, had awesome theme music, worked his ass off, went out there and got a reaction from the people, but because of John Cena, and I swear to God, I swear to f***ing God, because of John Cena, his career is over in the WWE for no f***ing reason outside of John and his personal issues.”
