WWE Booking Plans For Kenny Omega Revealed

WWE Booking Plans For Kenny Omega Revealed AEW

WWE had an interest in signing The Elite with a particular focus on Kenny Omega, considering him a top-tier signing.

Whilst The Elite would sign new multi-year deals with AEW, there were reports that the group went back-and-forth over the possibility of a move to WWE.

With an interest in The Elite, but focusing on Omega, plans for Kenny Omega were revealed in the new Wrestling Observer Newsletter, along with concerns over his longevity as a top-tier performer.

According to Dave Meltzer:

“One person with knowledge of WWE’s interest has noted to us that while Omega was top talent who would have been used as a top guy, in the mix with the likes of Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, Seth Rollins and Brock Lesnar level guys, that because of long-term physical durability that they believed Rollins as the role of the best in-ring wrestler in the company had more time in that role than Omega would have.”

In February 2022, Omega discussed taking time off to recover from a number of injuries that had plagued him and also addressed his future in the ring.

More recently, he has compared his approach to professional wrestling to the way in which Mike Tyson approached boxing.

It has also been reported that The Elite were told to “keep quiet” about signing new contracts so that the news could coincide with the landmark AEW Dynamite 200.
