The Elite are sticking around AEW, and their contracts were compared to NBA deals. The big question was how long those multi-year deals were really for.
As previously reported, Kenny Omega, along with the Young Bucks and Adam Page, recently extended their contracts with AEW. Additionally, Omega and the Bucks retained their roles as AEW Executive Vice Presidents.
Reports indicated that these individuals engaged in deliberations regarding their future, contemplating re-signing with AEW, exploring options with WWE, or considering alternatives.
Mark Henry, who is AEW coach, discussed the highly anticipated ‘dream’ match on the Torg & Elliot show. Henry expressed his conviction that Punk and Omega will inevitably find themselves facing off in an AEW ring, regardless of any ongoing behind-the-scenes developments.
During his conversation, Mark Henry inadvertently confirmed that The Elite’s deals are four-year commitments, a fact that was left out of the original announcement on purpose.
“I believe in both of those guys being great competitors and I feel they have a lot left, multiple years.
“Kenny Omega just signed a new deal. He’s going to be around another four years.”
If The Elite are under four-year deals, then that will mean that they won’t be up for another round of talks until WWE is rounding the corning into WrestleMania 44, possibly 45, and that doesn’t count for possible contract extensions due to injuries or any other unforeseen circumstances.
We will keep a close eye on this situation, because you never know what can happen in pro wrestling. After all, AEW has ticking time bomb waiting to explode in CM Punk, and Tony Khan hasn’t done much to deal with that situation yet.
