IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega spoke to Sport’s Illustrated Extra Mustard section and talked about, among other things, how WWE fares as a product and how New Japan Pro Wrestling differs from them.
Here is what he said below:
“Fans, wrestlers, and even the general public have been conditioned to believe that there’s an enormous skill gap between WWE and everyone else. A major league and a minor league. It’s either you’re there or you’re just not good enough. While it’s true their collection of talent is undeniable, a small group of us have bet on ourselves and on the unique alternative vision we have for pro wrestling. What they can offer in flash, we can offer in substance. While their writers produce TV for a certain demographic, we’re producing stories for fans that want something a little different.”
There is no doubt about the competition New Japan Pro Wrestling gives to the WWE.
