Steve Austin Says Kenny Omega Shouldn't Wait Too Long Before Joining WWE

Steve Austin is a known advocate of Kenny Omega and has highly praised him on numerous occasions, he recently went as far as to say Omega is "the next big thing" should he decide to join WWE. On the latest edition of The Steve Austin Show, the Texas Rattlesnake said Omega shouldn't wait too long before heading to WWE: 

On Kenny Omega’s WWE chances: 

“I think the charisma and what I’ve seen him do over there in Japan, if you were to unleash that right now at 33 years of age, I think, boom, or as soon as you can get him, the fact that he’s such a draw over there in Japan, here I think he translates. I just see… he kind of reminds me visually, a little bit, of Brian Pillman, but I don’t want to go down that road because he’s Kenny Omega, and Brian, man, he was ahead of his time, the way he pushed the gimmick from a [kayfabe perspective], I mean, he worked the boys. He worked the whole damn system. He worked Vince [McMahon] at a trade show one time and [Jim] Ross had to smarten Vince up, that he was just working and that’s how Brian got noticed. But back to Kenny Omega, I just think the guy’s a lightning bolt, hell of a damn talent in the ring. When I say green-light, I don’t want to beleaguer the point anymore, but when I say green-light, I mean take down all the walls and let the kid go do his thing. I think this guy, you turn him loose on a microphone, and I mean unstructured there, let him go do his thing, I just think the kid could be a huge hit in the United States if you turn him loose here in the WWE.”

On Omega not wanting to wait too long to go to WWE:

 “Working his style, you’ve got to take that all into consideration. It’s dog years once you start working that style all the time, but I’m not going to put a window on it, but I’m just saying like, I’m not here to book Kenny Omega or his next decision, what he’s going to do, but just with respect to hey, in the big picture, as a corporate entity if WWE is going to gets there and has the ability to work with him, it’s like, ‘hey man, we’d rather have the kid at 34 than 39’ and he says, ‘hey, man, I’m just going to stay in New Japan finish the mission I started out here. I like the creative freedom. Do you know what? I can go to WWE and just relax at 39 or 40 because I can smoke most of these guys.’ And that’s with due respect. You don’t want to come there too late.”
