The WWE have a large quantity of the best wrestlers in the world, sucking up so much talent from other promotions for the WWE main roster and across NXT.

Over the past few months alone they have brought in AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode while Roderick Strong and Kota Ibushi are reportedly signing for the company full time in the not too distant future.

However, despite all the stars making waves on the main roster, the WWE still don't have the best wrestling superstar in the world, according to Dave Meltzer.

Speaking on today's episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer was speaking about New Japan Pro Wrestling's recent G1 Climax Tournament. 

Meltzer stated that he believed the winner of that tournament was arguably the best in the world. The name will likely be a new one to many WWE fans.

"You finished watching this going like, this tournament was epic, and this guy [Kenny Omega] is the star wrestling performer of this world," Meltzer reportedly stated on the show. 

The respected wrestling journalist then went on to deliver some incredible praise on the 32-year-old Canadian, saying that only really Shawn Michaels and Kenta Kobashi are clearly above him.

"You know, when it was over it was like, who's better than this guy? Shawn Michaels ten years ago, Kenta Kobashi, yeah maybe," he stated.

"But I mean like, now, even A.J., who's pretty damn close, or somebody like, you know, I mean Okada's fantastic. Tanahashi, if it's a big match obviously. But god damn, this guy. He put on an incredible performance."

Amazing stuff. Omega really is that good and it would be incredible if the Canadian were to end up in the WWE at some point. But, it takes good writing and booking to make a star, and you cannot rely on Vince McMahon to do that.
