Kenny Omega returned to AEW after his suspension, and that was a period of time that he won’t get back. Of course, AEW had already frozen his contract due to injury, and that means he has even more time on his deal. That being said, no new contract has been signed yet.
We previously reported that WWE’s interest in Kenny Omega was confirmed in a big way. Only time will tell if they bring The Cleaner in, but Ringside News exclusively reported that the company is not under a hiring freeze at all.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer spoke about this situation with Kenny Omega. He stated that, while people believe that Omega has inked a new deal, that is not the case. The fact is that his deal was extended thanks to the time he missed from the ring.
“Okay, the stuff with Kenny Omega. Konnan did an interview, and it got people thinking that Kenny Omega had signed a new contract. Kenny Omega is under contract with AEW. His contract was extended because he was out for, I think, nine months due to injuries. I believe that he is under contract until around November or December. There is no new deal that’s been signed.”
Kenny Omega will be around AEW for a little while longer, but he has not inked a new deal. With WWE interest looming, one has to wonder if Vince McMahon’s company is an attractive option for Kenny Omega at this point.
