Last week we reported that Kenny Omega had claimed the number one spot on PWI 500 list for the second time in his career. Omega has definitely worked hard and consistently over the past year, but to him, he believes Roman Reigns could have taken the top spot.
While speaking to the PWI Podcast, Kenny Omega admitted that WWE Tribal Cheif could have “easily” claimed the top spot in the PWI 500. Shingo Takagi or Will Ospreay could have pulled down that honor as well. Obviously, the AEW Champion is aware that the Universal Champion had an incredible year as well.
“I’ve really stepped outside of my own comfort zone, and not only that, but everyone else stepped up their game too. It’s fantastic that I don’t feel like, no matter how I look at it, I didn’t run away with it. I don’t think I was number one by far. I think the best part about this year, especially, is you could have went in multiple directions and no one would be disappointed. I feel that, up until his unfortunate injury, number one could have been Will Ospreay. Number one could have easily been Shingo Takagi. Number one could have easily been Roman Reigns.
“Everyone had such a strong year. So I feel, depending on who you are and what you like in professional wrestling, you know, maybe that’s your number one. But I’m not gonna lie, for you guys to select me as number one, I’m happy with it. I’m cool with it, but it was a tough one this year and tough one, great learning experience, and it’s something I’ll never forget.”
It looks like Omega will be feuding with the recent acquisition of AEW Bryan Danielson, so we will have to see if Omega can continue the hot streak he has been on.
