New Japan star Kenny Omega recently spoke with Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard, here are the highlights…

On Being Offered a Spot With NXT:

“I have spoken with the heads at NXT, and they’ve all said, ‘If you want to come down, let us know–the second your visa is in place, you’re on TV the next week,’” said Omega, who has a rocky history with WWE developmental territories from his time a decade ago in Deep South Wrestling. “I thought that was really cool of them to say and I appreciate they recognize that I’d add some value to their product, so I always kept that in my mind as an option. But this is going back to my Deep South days–I still haven’t quite shown them what I can do on my own, and that’s what I think this year is going to do for me.”

His Thoughts on ‪The New Day‬:

“New Day…… rocks,” admitted Omega. “I can’t lie. What would it do and what would it prove if they sucked? We’re ‪#‎TheElite‬, so we have to challenge the top act on the planet. You don’t see us challenging some other three man unit–we’re trying to make history, and we’re challenging the best–New Day rocks.”
