Kenny Omega Says He’s Leaving NJPW

Kenny Omega recently spoke with Tokyo Sports and says that he is leaving New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Omega lost The IWGP Heavyweight Title to Hiroshi Tanahashi at this week’s Wrestle Kingdom 13 and didn’t make an appearance the next night at NJPW New Year Dash. His contract was reportedly over later this month.
The article noted that it is likely his choices are narrowed down to WWE or All Elite Wrestling. NJPW Announcer Chris Charlton translated some of Omega’s comments about why he is looking to leave the company, as seen below:

. @KennyOmegamanX ‘reflecting back on it, the #njwk13 match was a bout to decide the protagonist of New Japan… I take full responsibility for the loss’

‘There is no real place for me to fit, so it’s best for me not to be in (NJPW). I can’t be there working under Tanahashi. I don’t think he’s surpassed me, don’t think he’s better. If we can, I want to face him again. But I need time away, and not just from New Japan.’

As previously reported, Omega has strong ties to Cody Rhodes & The Young Bucks of AEW, which is holding a Double or Nothing Rally this Tuesday in Jacksonville, Florida. It was also reported this week that Omega was made a “fantastic offer” by WWE as they look to bring his talent to The WWE Universe.
