Kenny Omega stated that no roster in the world can truly say that they have the best roster.

“The thing is there’s so many great wrestlers doing it,” Kenny Omega said. “And there is no one roster on the planet that has all the greatest athletes and talent. It doesn’t exist. There’s always going to be one or two guys somewhere else that could fit in and put great work in anywhere.

It’s just ‘how do you be different enough or how can you sort of get those eyes on your product by doing something different than anyone else is doing, in that week?’ And that’s sort of been the name of the game for me.

The Wednesday night thing, I love a lot of those NXT guys. A lot of them are my friends. I love to see them doing well, I love it when I hear when they’ve had a good match or performance. It’s great. If I heard the card in advance and I knew two of the guys, for example, I’m a big fan of Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly.

If I knew they were going to have a great match on Tuesday, I’d be like ‘hey, maybe that’s something worth checking out guys.’ And for me, there’s a lot of people that I don’t really know. I also like brushing up on the new faces.
