Omega Wants to Wait on Okada Rematch

  Kenny Omega spoke with ESPN on a number of wrestling topics surrounding NJPW, one topic was about his rematch with Okada being “too soon”.

His upcoming rematch with Kazuchika Okada:

“If I’m going to give you a personal opinion, I would say that, I personally think it’s too soon to revisit that match. I would have liked to just let that performance be, come back to it at a later date. But there comes a time in business when it’s just important to move numbers, put asses in seats, as the saying goes, and you have to come out guns blazing. “I knew eventually there would be a second match, regardless of how good or bad it was. I think there’s going to be a third, [and] I still think there’s going to be an Omega-Okada four. [But] I’ve been called to duty sooner than I would have liked to have been, and I’m put into a situation where that match is still very fresh in everyone’s minds.”

Along with that, it comes as no surprise to many fans that NJPW is different than WWE, Impact, etc. Omega said the following about the difference between NJPW and other US promotions.

“We’re not mimicking anyone, this is New Japan. It’s an option aside from the other wrestling brands that are around, and I don’t just mean WWE, but it’s different from TNA, it’s different from Ring of Honor, it’s really its own thing — it’s got its own distinct look, its own distinct style.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
