Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks took several weeks off television after their Brawl Out confrontation with CM Punk. He wrestled a seven-match series against the Death Triangle, and that was lauded by fans. Those same fans have wondered why Omega wasn’t around for the past week weeks.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that Kenny Omega has been off television for a few weeks, because of visa issues. This caused him to miss the last few episodes of AEW Dynamite. There is hope that he will be in Daytona on February 1st, but there is no guarantee that’s happening.
