The 3rd person announced was none other than Kenny Omega. The announcement clearly caught Page off-guard. He immediately left commentary.
It would seem Omega is going to officially be back in the singles division. Will this prompt Hangman to enter the tournament?
We don’t know who the other 5 guys will be, but it would seem Hangman could be one of them. So far, AEW has had a few tournaments. Some have been better than others.
However, this is a tournament around the main title. You’d think AEW will put a ton of effort to ensuring it’s good.
