While speaking about his upcoming match against Chris Jericho at WrestleKingdom 12 during a press conference, Kenny Omega talked about professional wrestling having a ceiling and said that it’s his dream to break that ceiling.
“There’s a ceiling here. You can only get so famous. Pro wrestling can only get so popular. My dream is to break that ceiling. It always has been.” He continued, “Are we only big in Japan now? No. Everyone knows who we are. Everyone knows New Japan, but there’s still that ceiling. There’s still the image that we can never compete. Watch me compete.”
Omega was also asked about WWE and that’s when he claimed that everyone in the company is below him and accused them of copying him.
“WWE, in general — you can quote me on this I don’t care — everyone there is so below me. No one can put together a performance like me from there. Anyone that’s copying anyone is copying me. I’m the trend right now. I don’t need to search anyone as an opponent. I don’t need the need to take on anyone from there to prove anything.”
