Major Kenny Omega AEW Contract Update Amid WWE Speculation

Major Kenny Omega AEW Contract Update Amid WWE Speculation AEW

A major update on the AEW contract of Kenny Omega has emerged amid much speculation of WWE being interested in signing him.

It had been reported that Omega’s contract was due to expire at the end of January 2023 as he’d signed a four-year deal starting February 1, 2019.

This led to a lot of talk about his status, some of which has now been cleared up.

According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW has extended Omega’s contract to account for the time he’s been out injured during the last four years.

This is said to be around nine months, which would mean it could have been extended until November, but the exact time frame of the extension reportedly “hasn’t been finalized”.

Meltzer did write that Omega has been “heavily talked about in certain circles in WWE and other places in wrestling as well”.

The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) – who are EVPs of AEW alongside Kenny Omega as well as the three being the promotion’s current Trios Champions – have their contracts coming up at the end of 2023.

Omega and the Bucks are expected to defend the Trios Championship against Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews of the House of Black at AEW Revolution on March 5.
