Prior to his match against Pentagon at All In, where he was later attacked by Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega spoke about a potential WWE run in the future and spoke about what would make his potential matches in the WWE, special.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated's Justin Barrasso, Omega said that there are wrestlers in WWE that he could have good matches with, but there may be limitations about the things he could do.

Omega said, "There are people within that promotion where, if we had that said match, could generate multiple communities celebrating the performance. That’s what happened when the Bucks and I did the gaming battle with the New Day.

"But right now, it’s all, ‘What if?’ fantasy scenarios. It’s going to stay that way until it happens, if it ever even happens, because you never know what type of limitations are going to be placed on those matches. If Kenny Omega is allowed to be Kenny Omega, then those matches would be really special."

Omega's contract with NJPW will end soon, and it remains to be seen if he makes the switch to WWE.

#2 Hulk Hogan wants Kenny Omega in WWE

Speaking of Omega in WWE, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan wants to see the IWGP Heavyweight Champion wrestle in the WWE and spoke of how Omega knows how "to switch gears" wherever he wrestles.

"Kenny Omega is a different animal, he's just such a special talent. He's already a worldwide star. You have to know how to switch gears, and Kenny understands how to work the Japanese style, the American-Japanese style, and the American style," said Hogan

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Hogan also said Vince McMahon and WWE could take Omega to the next level.

"Would I love to see him go to the WWE? Yes. Would I love to see him be used correctly? Yes. If he ever got lost in the mix, it would be a sad, sad story. But if there is a chance to sign him, Vince McMahon could be the guy to take him to the next level. If you don't touch on the WWE, your story is not complete. But rules are made to be broken, and Kenny is such a big star that he could be the one to change all that.

#3 John Cena's newest finisher

John Cena returned to the WWE ring in a house show in Shanghai, China, where he debuted his new finisher - Lightning Fist. Cena has been teasing this new finisher on social media and used it against Elias, when he teamed with Bobby Lashley, at the live event.

#4 Chris Jericho at All In

Chris Jericho, who currently has a free agent status, wrestling for the WWE and NJPW, had previously said that he would not wrestle for a non-WWE promotion in the United States, out of respect to Vince McMahon and WWE.

But, that all changed when he recently admitted that he would wrestle at Impact Wrestling or any other promotion if the story was appealing.

At All In, Jericho attacked Kenny Omega after Omega's match against Pentagon. Jericho then plugged his Cruise with Jericho, saying that a possible match between him and Omega could take place there.

Jinder Mahal's stock has fallen rapidly in the WWE and it sunk to its lowest at SummerSlam, where he did not feature in the card.

The former WWE champion, who is now on RAW, spoke about how he felt about being left out of one of WWE's biggest PPVs, in an interview with Gorilla Position: (H/T WrestlingInc for the transcript)"I see it as motivating to me. It's motivation to me because I see where I was last year I was WWE Champion. Unfortunately this year [I didn't] have a match. I could be disappointed. I could play the blame game. Or I could look deep into myself.

"What am I doing that I could make sure to do better to make sure I was on this card? I gotta go back to what made me WWE Champion so next year I can be Universal Champion or WWE Champion and main event SummerSlam again."

#6 Daniel Bryan lauds All In

SmackDown Superstar Daniel Bryan, praised Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks for creating All In and said that it would increase pro wrestling fans, and is a great addition for fans and wrestlers.
