New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) star Kenny Omega recently did an interview with WSVN-TV Entertainment reporter Chris Van Vliet to talk about a variety of professional wrestling topics. “The Cleaner” discussed WWE telling he and The Bullet Club to stop using the “Too Sweet” gesture, and of course his Wrestle Kingdom 12 match with Chris Jericho. You can check out the highlights from the interview here:

WWE trying to ‘cripple’ The Bullet Club by banning them from using the “Too Sweet” gesture:

“We don’t need Too Sweet. We never did. They think that by taking away Too Sweet they’ve crippled us somehow. Like ‘Oh, we’re really sticking it to them, now they’re not going to sell any merchandise.’ It’s not the case. We couldn’t care less.”

His Wrestle Kingdom 12 match with Chris Jericho:

“It’s a match that I’ve been looking forward to for a long time and I don’t mean particularly Chris Jericho, I just mean something of that magnitude. If I couldn’t be in the main event, which I couldn’t this year, I still wanted the chance to steal the show. I still wanted the chance to be the match that was talked about. So Chris Jericho has given me just that opportunity and together I really hope we can make even more headlines before the show and even after the show.”
