Kenny Omega is fresh off one of the biggest weekends of his career. ‘The Cleaner’ was the star performer in NJPW’s G1 Climax In USA shows, putting on outstanding singles bouts with Michael Elgin, Jay Lethal, and Tomohiro Ishii, and leaving Long Beach as the first ever IWGP United States Champion.

Omega has been one of the most talked about wrestlers in the world throughout 2017, and has now become the face of NJPW’s US expansion. He’s not only drawing praise from the fans, but some of the biggest names in the business, including a guy who knows a thing or two about making it in WWE.

‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin had NJPW commentator Don Callis on his Steve Austin Show Unleashed podcast this Thursday, and he had high praise for the Bullet Club leader:-

“I think he could be the next big thing in the United States. I think he could be the guy. First of all, if that’s what he wanted to do. If WWE brought him in and just gave him everything that he needed or pushed him in the way that he needed to be pushed. If it was a green light push and everything was all systems go on making Kenny Omega the guy then he can be the guy.”

Austin and Callis continued praising Kenny throughout the show, with special mention for his promos and Brian Pillman-esque energy.

Omega was reportedly close to signing with WWE in January, but chose to extend his NJPW stay instead. It’s hard to tell what his long term future holds, but with his current contract apparently expiring next February, the speculation isn’t going away any time soon.
