KENNY OMEGA has reportedly snubbed WWE for at least another year and signed a new deal with New Japan Pro Wrestling.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer News, the Canadian has penned a contract keeping him with the company until January 31 2019.
That would potentially rule out any return for Omega to WWE at the Royal Rumble or Wrestlemania.
Omega cemented himself as one of the best wrestlers in the world after defeating Chris Jericho at Wrestlekindom 12.
It was one of the most anticipated matches ever in the world of wrestling and was seen as a potential route for Omega back to WWE.
There were rumours he would appear at the Royal Rumble and set up a rematch with Jericho at Wrestlemania.
But Omega has stayed loyal to NJPW, where he currently holds the IWGP United States heavyweight championship.
Omega will now be heavily involved in the promotions push to become bigger in America.
Omega also took exception to comments made by Roman Reigns that he himself was the best in-ring performer in the world.
He said: "By no means do I actually think he believes in those words."
