Current WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins wants to face the current IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega.
Rollins was one of several WWE superstars who were present at the ACE Comic Con that was held in Chicago. While the Architect was there, he was asked what opponent – not currently signed with the WWE, he would want to face in the ring.
Rollins answered that he would like to face Omega, a match up many are already calling a “dream” match.
As to why he chose Omega as his dream opponent, the Architect basically stated it’s because he thinks he has something to prove.
“I am the best wrestler in the world, and would like to prove that,” stated Rollins to the crowd’s approval.
Aside from being the current WWE Intercontinental Champion, Rollins is a former WWE Champion, and part of the dominant faction, The Shield. Before he signed with the WWE, he was a well known indy wrestler, but he has yet to cross paths with Omega.
Omega, on the other hand, is the current face of New Japan Pro Wrestling. He has also spoken quite firmly about not being interested about going to the WWE – though the WWE itself is said to be very interested.
If by chance the WWE does finally make Omega an offer he can not refuse, there’s a feud waiting for him that will be sure to “burn it down”.
