Kenny Omega is a founding member of AEW and still serves as an EVP today. He became only the third world champion in the companies history and held the title for just under a year before dropping it to Hangman Page in one of the hottest storylines in AEW have produced.
It may be hard to imagine The Best Bout Machine away from AEW, aside from agreed stints in Japan, but his future in the company is currently unclear. As revealed in the latest Wrestling Observer, The Cleaner has less than a year left on his AEW contract with it stated that the deal would’ve already expired if not for the time Omega spent on the sidelines being added to the contract’s length.
“Omega’s AEW contract date was to have expired at the end of January as he had a four-year deal with no option clause to add time that started on February 1, 2019. His contract does allow AEW to extend it for the time he was out injured, which has happened. He was out nine months so that would be a maximum of November but the extended time frame hasn’t been finalized as far as how long.”– Dave Meltzer
The Canadian star currently holds AEW’s Trios Championships alongside The Young Bucks, having returned from suspension to overcome Death Triangle in a best of seven sequence. It appears as if The Elite’s next opponents will be House Of Black.
