Kenny Omega has officially signed for All Elite Wrestling (AEW), and is a full-time member of their ever growing roster.
We have pretty much known since he announced that he was leaving NJPW at the beginning on January that he would be joining Cody and the Young Bucks.
Kenny reportedly rejected an outstanding offer from WWE to join AEW, and now joins his Being the Elite brothers.
He was the final name announced at AEW’s Double or Nothing Ticket Announcement Party, but it wasn’t long before he was interrupted by Chris Jericho.

The two faced off at Wrestle Kingdom 12 in 2018, and Jericho attacked Omega at All In after Kenny’s match with Pentagon Jr, so the two have a pretty extensive history.
Both men began brawling on the stage at the press conference and had to be separated by SCU and Cody.
It looks like this will be another match for Double or Nothing on May 25.
It was also announced that Kenny will be joining the Bucks and Cody as an Executive Vice President of AEW, showing how tight knit the Elite group really is.
