Kenny Omega Talks About Possibly Becoming NJPW Grand Slam Champion

Published

on

Kenny Omega is set to take on NEVER Openweight Champion, Hirooki Goto in the G1 Climax 28 tournament in a rematch that has been 2 years in the making, with Omega claiming victory of G1 Climax 26.

“Hey Goto,” Omega said. “It’s easy to say that your belt means nothing compared to mine. That you are nothing compared to me. But guess what? That isn’t true because your NEVER belt, as s****y as it may be, it’s the only single’s belt I’ve never won.”

“Trust me, I’m a fair man. I believe in revenge. My career has been fundamentally been built upon revenge,” Omega continued. “So, I’m going to give you a fair chance. G1 26 Finals, I beat you, do you remember? I do. I made history and then I went on to have one of the greatest matches of all time against Okada and I lost. And he gave me revenge and then I couldn’t beat him and then he gave me revenge and then I did.

What kind of champion would I be if I didn’t give you that same chance? You better come prepared because the next chance at the G1 could mean everything. And it could cost everything for you Goto because I might just come for your title after. What are you going to do then? What’s everyone going to do once I become the first-ever Grand Slam Champion of New Japan. Wouldn’t that be interesting? Wouldn’t that be something?”
