For you WWE fans that’s not familiar with Kenny Omega, you’re missing out. If you need to know more about him, Google Being the Elite or Bullet Club and I’m sure you’re find some great content. Kenny Omega just defeated Kacuchika Okada at NJPW’s Dominion show to become IWGP World Heavyweight Champion. The match was another classic those put on and the match went over an hour. Recently, Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks got together with the New Day for a Street Fighter tournament at E3. Afterwards, Kenny Omega joined Jim Ross on his podcast, The Ross Report and they talked about a little bit of everything. One of the most talked about topics was him being more open to joining the WWE. It’s rumored that Omega’s contract will be up in a few months. If he heads to the WWE, who are some people who he should face?
Kenny Omega mentioned he wanted to do something with A.J. Styles and this is a given. Both guys have been leaders of the Bullet Club and have been called the best wrestlers in the world. Omega is currently the IWGP Heavyweight Champion and Styles, the WWE Champion. If these two were to meet and be able to do what they do best, this could and would be an instant classic.
Omega also mentioned Seth Rollins by name in his interview also. For the last few months, Seth Rollins has arguably been the best wrestler in the WWE. The action between Omega and Rollins would be crazy, plus the spots would also be insane. Putting Omega against Seth Rollins would have the crowd going crazy during this match.
This is another match or feud that could make itself. Like Omega and Styles, Finn Balor has ties to the Bullet Club as he was once the leader too. Omega and Balor have similar styles where they love to take chances. If they were to feud, it could get personal with their ties to New Japan also.
This is another given as both have been called the best wrestlers in the world. Ever since Daniel Bryan has been cleared, he has basically taken over where he left off a few years prior. The feud can be based off who’s really the best wrestler in the world.
Before Nakamura left NJPW, he was labeled as the best in that company and one of the best in the world. Shinsuke Nakamura is starting to find himself more since he turned heel on Styles at WrestleMania. This feud could play off who was the best in New Japan. The match itself could be another classic if given the proper time.
With the recent interactions with New Day and Omega, this is a given. Actually, anyone from New Day would be perfect, but I singled out Big E because Omega said he should be a world champion by now. With Big E and facing Kenny Omega, he could bring the best out of Big E. If the Young Bucks were to sign with the WWE, this feud will actually write itself.
If the WWE were to bring in Omega as this huge babyface, Owens would be an excellent choice for his first feud. Owens is an antagonist who loves to get under people skin, but he’s an excellent wrestler. There’s no doubt that Omega and Owens would put on a great match.
If Owens isn’t the choice for first feud, The Miz is an excellent choice to face Omega if he jumps ship. Remember when Daniel Bryan first became a star in the WWE? The Miz had a big part in that and he’s great on the mic, plus his in-ring work is underrated.
If you’re bringing in Kenny Omega as a top attraction, why not go straight to the Big Dog. Just imagine Reigns cutting a promo and music hit, then we get Kenny Omega interrupting him. The crowd reaction would be bananas and just imagine if that’s the debut of Omega. There are so many fans that don’t like Reigns, but he can hold his own in the ring. If Omega and Reigns were to meet, this would be an excellent match.
Last and definitely not least, it’s the golden boy of the WWE. John Cena is a part-time talent, but I’m sure he would love to battle and put over Omega. Just imagine the crowd reaction having John Cena and Kenny Omega in the same ring together. We all know that Cena can still put on great matches with certain opponents, just go back and watch his matches with A.J. Styles.
