Kenny Omega Says Guys Like Cena & Rollins Are Not on His Level, Explains Why They Couldn’t Excel in the Grueling G1 Climax Tournament

2016 New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Climax winner Kenny Omega recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard and below are some interview highlights:

On whether or not talents like John Cena, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns or Dean Ambrose could excel in the G1 Climax tournament:

“Absolutely not,” said Omega. “That’s not even me speaking in character–that’s just them not being on my level, at all, physically or mentally. I’m not taking anything away from them–they’re fantastic, great performers, great people. But what we do here is completely different from what they do there.

Do I think John Cena could come here and do what I do?” asked Omega. “No. Do I think anyone else could? No, not even close. That may come across as sounding egotistical, but it’s just the reality of the situation. We have a very physical style, and the physical demand for what they do is different.

If they asked the same question oppositely, could I do John Cena’s schedule with all of the charity events he does? He’s always on the move–could I do that as well as John Cena? Definitely not. It’s apples and oranges, you can’t really compare. All the same, I respect what they do, and I do believe that respect is mutual and goes both ways.”
