Updates have emerged on several major AEW stars’ contracts, revealing how long they have left on their current deals.
With 2022 marking the third year since AEW’s inception, many talent contracts have already come up, with more set to expire soon.
Per Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Most of the original top names including the Young Bucks and Adam Page had two year options with their deals, so will be with AEW until at least the end of 2023. MJF’s deal would, in theory, end around the same time, but ‘everyone’ is reportedly quiet about MJF’s contract status.
It was clarified that Kenny Omega had initially signed a four year deal with AEW in February 2019, so this deal would be up in February 2024.
It was pointed out that AEW has reportedly extended contracts based on stars being out of action for long periods of time, meaning that the company likely has the contractual right to extend Omega’s deal for around nine months, with Omega not wrestling since November 2021.
It has been speculated that Omega will return as part of the AEW Trios Championship tournament, with the Young Bucks slated to team with a mystery partner.
