WWE : Does Kenny Omega have a point regarding Nakamura?
The wish for many WWE fans is to one day see Kenny Omega inside a WWE ring.
However, it doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon. He is also a prime example of someone who is doing well outside of the WWE. In an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso, he made some comments about Shinsuke Nakamura’s main roster run.
I’m happy for the response that he’s getting,of course, and all of us in New Japan knew when he left that he was going to get over with his charmisa. But when I see Nakamura in the WWE, it’s hard for me to say he’s done anything compelling in-ring since he has been there, which is a shame. It will just take the one right story and the right moment and then people will be captivated by everything that he does. Right now, he hasn’t had it.
He does make a good few points. It seems that the booking has been very different for Nakamura on the main roster. During his NXT run, he feuded with Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, and briefly with Sami Zayn. He also made history in NXT. He was one of the first singles stars to win the NXT title on multiple occasions. However, he would finally debut on the main roster on the Smackdown Live after Wrestlemania. Due to his run in NXT, the feeling was that he would get shot right to the top. It ended up not being the case.
He would end up feuding with Jinder Mahal for the WWE title heading into Summerslam. Nakamura hasn’t done anything memorable other than that feud. He has been booked as just another guy and not something special. The feeling is that Omega made these comments to add fuel to his upcoming match. On January 4th he is set to fight Chris Jericho at WrestleKingdom 12.Follow @jon_blayne
