In an interview with Tokyo Sports, New Japan Pro Wrestling superstar Kenny Omega commented on losing his match against Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at Wrestle Kingdom 11 and what the future holds for him going forward.
“As hard as I trained, as hard as I prepared, I lost, something’s missing and until I figure out what, I can’t wrestle, I’m just not motivated now. I don’t have the confidence to guarantee victory, so I don’t have a problem with Suzuki-gun challenging next. I won’t do FantasticaMania and it’s possible I may miss New Beginning as well while I form a concrete plan of what to do next. I devoted all of 2016 to taking the belt at the Dome [WRESTLE KINGDOM 11]. That not coming true means I have to rethink everything.”
Omega’s current deal with New Japan Pro Wrestling is reported to expire on January 31st. The interview is available in full at this link.
