AEW recently inked new deals with the Young Bucks. Now the Jackson Brothers aren’t going anywhere until 2024. The same is not true for other Executive Vince Presidents at this time.
Kenny Omega and Cody Rhodes play pivotal roles on AEW television and it is hard to imagine either of them leaving the company at this juncture. Crazier things have happened in the pro wrestling business in the past.
Wade Keller of Post Wrestling stated that both Kenny Omega and Cody Rhodes’ AEW contracts are running out. There is no indication that they have re-signed with the company, but losing either of their EVPs is obviously not the intention.
“There are people I’ve talked to in AEW who are looking at their contracts and wondering what their deal is gonna be next time when their first deals come up and how much leverage they’re gonna have with WWE or New Japan or heck, GCW with their ticket sales these days or the indie scene as an option to book yourself. It’s gonna be interesting to watch.”
“I have heard the intent and the hope is that Cody and Kenny and Tony all come to deals. There’s not signs that any of them want to leave or are disgruntled to the point that they shouldn’t be able to come to an extension but I don’t know the situation. Maybe Cody and Kenny already signed extensions and they kept it quiet. Actually, I’m pretty sure that hasn’t happened now that I think about it from people I’ve talked to. I think Cody and Kenny might be next in terms of signing extensions.”
There are certainly options out there for people like Kenny Omega or Cody Rhodes. It is also hard to believe that either man would elect to leave All Elite Wrestling at this juncture. Keep checking back with Ringside News as we continue monitoring this ongoing situation.
