Seth Rollins was on a convention panel at the Fandemic Tour in Houston this past weekend and was asked about a WrestleMania match with Kenny Omega. You can watch his reply below.
“When Kenny’s done playing in the minor leagues over there, Kenny can come work at the absolute top professional wrestling company in the world, in front of the most people, and make the most money, and have the biggest matches, which is with me at WrestleMania.”
It should be noted that Omega turned down a WWE contract to sign with AEW. Calling AEW “minor league” could be seen as a receipt from Rollins as Omega has fired shots at NXT previously. Back in September, in an interview with Sportskeeda, Omega would say the below about AEW vs. NXT:
“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 on the same show as me? They’d be in the dark match. They’d be in the opening match of my main event match.”
Omega would follow up saying:
“You gonna call that a war, you gonna call that competition? Go ahead. Okay, 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 10,000 plus arenas sold out. You’re going to see smiles on fans’ faces. And you’re going to see real stars, not developmental talent. But real stars appearing on your television sets, every week.”
