Kenny Omega Says AEW Will Showcase Real Stars, Not Developmental Talent

Kenny Omega isn’t bothered by WWE NXT going head-to-head with AEW Dynamite on cable television every Wednesday night.

In new comments made in an interview with, Omega said if he was in the same promotion as some of the names in NXT, they would be in the dark match or in the opening match of his main event match. He said on AEW you’re going to see real stars, not developmental talent.

Below is an excerpt:

“You can call it a war if you want. It’s like, to me, we’re in a completely different kind of business. I mean what they’re doing is different from what we’re doing. It’s weird, because it’s hard to say you’re going to war with people that I call my friends.

And yet, we are going to war. And yet, when I sit back and look at the grand picture, I’m going to war with these dudes that, if we were on the same show together, the same promotion…let’s pretend there were no borders. Let’s pretend there were no promotions. Let’s just pretend there’s just one big promotion. If these guys were in the same show as me, they’d be in the dark match. They’d be in the opening match of my main event match.

You wanna call that a war, you wanna call that competition? Go ahead. Maybe it’s fun for you to do. That’s cool. But we’re different planets. And you’re going to see that right away, when you see 10000+ arenas sold out. You’re going to see smiles on fans’ faces. You’re going to see real stars. Not developmental talent but real stars appearing on your television sets, every week.”
