AEW has a lot of things going on, and the last thing they need right now is to lose key members of their roster. Kenny Omega’s AEW contract would have reportedly been up already, but he’s still under a deal due to time Tony Khan tacked onto his contract thanks to an injury hiatus. It seems that the company wants to keep them even longer.

WWE is interested in bringing in The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. That being said, AEW is not going to make it easy to secure them.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, AEW is working hard to lock Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks into long term deals. Nothing is guaranteed, but this is a goal to get Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks to stick around.

AEW is working on signing the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega to new long-term deals well before they become free agents. With the Bucks, while they may do well in WWE, it’s not guaranteed, and they will have a better schedule in AEW meaning more time with the family and also less matches and can do their style. With Omega, he doesn’t have kids and he would likely get a major push and would have no end to having fresh opponents.


It would also close the door to Japan that he’s waited years to re-open. But he did at least consider and have talks with WWE 2018-19 and wasn’t negative about WWE at all while making his choice to go to AEW. Khan did say he hoped Omega would be in the company for a long time to come

WWE was said to be interested in bringing in a name bigger than Jay White. Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks would certainly qualify to fill that role. This is a very interesting situation as WWE might become a much greener pasture for them.

We will have to see where The Elite is in a few months. Tony Khan obviously doesn’t want to lose three more EVPs, but he might have to do a lot if he wants to convince them to stay, depending on where they are with things.

Do you think Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks are going to end up in WWE? Is Triple H waiting on them? Sound off in the comments section!
