Kenny Omega Talks Differences Between NJPW & WWE, Plus Seth Rollins Using His Finisher

NJPW talent Kenny Omega was recently interviewed by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. During the interview Omega spoke on several subject, two of which were the differences between WWE and NJPW, and Seth Rollins using his finishing move.

Here’s what Omega had to say:

The main Differences between WWE and NJPW:

“That’s a tough question. Both companies approach the business a little differently, and thus you’re going to get different types of treatment towards their respective titles. Generally speaking, WWE is show business and there will be times when the belt is nothing but a prop to advance TV storylines. NJPW likes to use its heavyweight belt to feature its style pro wrestling at the highest level. Matches in New Japan are generally longer and theatrics kept to a minimum. Also, the idea of having a single strong champion goes back years and years and years, and NJPW is very tradition-heavy.”

Seth Rollins daunting Kenny Omega’s finisher:

“If he was inspired by my match to add that to his arsenal, it’s a great compliment,” said Omega. “A finishing move is an important part of one’s character–and sometimes success. So for him, being a top guy in WWE, it’s cool that he chose something that I’d used earlier in the year during my match with Okada. “As for the tweet, a lot of guys don’t know that I used to travel with Rollins all of the time in ROH. We never became the closest of friends, but we’re definitely cool with each other and the mutual respect has always been there. If I was legitimately angry, I’d just flat out say so. I’m not one to shy away from speaking my mind.”
