AEW does not want to lose more of their biggest stars, especially as they are still in the process of expanding their programming lineup. Although they have lost a couple notable names so far, like Cody Rhodes, it doesn’t appear that the remainder of AEW’s EVPs will follow the American Nightmare.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter covered The Elite’s current status with their AEW contracts. It was noted that, “the prevailing belief is that the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and Adam Page are staying. The interview Omega did off the air in Boston would have led you to believe that is the case.”

The report also went on to explain that the interview Kenny Omega cut in Boston was supposed to be on television. They shook hands, and it seemed that their beef was squashed.

The interview was also originally supposed to be on television, as was the handshake between the Golden Elite and BCC, which seemed to signal the end of the feud at this point.


If that Omega thing was on television with the mention of them sticking together, that’s where so many people believed they were staying and there was a no deal. None of those involved have said if that is what that line meant.

We do know from a WWE standpoint that months ago they had the impression they had a good shot at Omega in 2024 and he was the most coveted of all the guys being talked about like Jay White and the others. That has gone cold so they do believe he’s staying with AEW.

Tony Khan’s substantial offers suggest optimism or the expectation of a significant rate increase, making lucrative deals financially viable. However, it’s worth noting that the current television landscape is unconventional and highly unstable, presenting a unique challenge for committing to long-term ventures. The decision for television networks to embrace new projects years ahead will be intriguing in such a dynamic environment.

We will have to see what goes down, because it doesn’t appear that anything has actually been signed yet. At this point, WWE doesn’t want to risk contract tampering at all, especially with that ongoing antitrust lawsuit with MLW.

What’s your take on The Elite sticking around AEW? Is that the best place for them? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!
