The hottest topic in the world of professional wrestling currently revolves around the future of Kenny Omega. We exclusively reported prior to Wrestle Kingdom 13 that a well place source had confirmed to us that Omega was indeed finished with New Japan, which Omega himself confirmed in an interview with Tokyo Sport yesterday.
Since the news of his departure from NJPW, and the reports of a huge multi-million dollar offer from WWE, there has been a lot of speculation and discussion as to whether Kenny Omega will sign with WWE or opt to sign with his friends in The Elite and go with AEW. I spoke to my source close to situation earlier today, and it was told to me that Omega will not be going to WWE, and will indeed sign with All Elite Wrestling.
When asked about Omega potentially signing with either WWE or AEW, my source told me:
“Well Kenny is going AEW.. Yea. He literally just told me.”
Omega’s potential signing with AEW was also teased at the end of the latest episode of Being The Elite, where Omega’s cell phone was seen outside the Tokyo Dome with a countdown timer ticking down, similar to what we saw from the other members of The Elite on New Year’s Eve prior to their announcement of All Elite Wrestling.
Despite reports that WWE is doing everything that they can to potentially sign Omega, it looks like he has decided to turn down their reported very lucrative offer after all.
We will keep you updated as we here more information regarding Kenny Omega and All Elite Wrestling.
