Kenny Omega: “What’s next? I don’t know because nothing has spoken to me”

While promoting tonight’s AEW debut in Winnipeg, Kenny Omega was asked about his future with AEW and what he is looking to accomplish in the forthcoming years.

Omega appeared on CBC’s Front Burner podcast with host Jayme Poisson and was asked directly if going to WWE is something that appeals to the 39-year-old:

Omega: I think at this point anything new appeals to me and challenges also always, always appeal to me. At one point it was one of those, ‘if you say I can’t do it, I really want to do it’. Now it’s not that, I wouldn’t say I’m older and wiser it’s more like, I’m older and I care less about that it’s more about what kinds of people can I reach. What kind of positive thing can I contribute? And, what do I even feel best suited for?

Host: So maybe, I guess is the answer?

Omega: Right. I mean, again it’s all place and time like we haven’t even reached that time yet.

Omega’s deal was initially set to expire earlier this year but was reportedly extended for an unknown length of time due to Omega’s time away to deal with multiple injuries last year. Omega is obviously going to keep his options open and not share too much publicly but stated in the interview that he doesn’t have a strong feeling, either way, this early in the process regarding where he wants to go:

I always kind of try to find my own way or at least try to lean in the direction of where my heart is pulling me, and right now, I’m taking one step at a time, and with this Winnipeg show it feels like ‘yeah this feels right’ and what’s next? I don’t know because nothing has spoken to me, nothing has told me this is what you need to do. The spidey sense hasn’t been triggered yet.

Omega will team with The Young Bucks against the House of Black and J.A.S. on tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite from the Canada Life Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
