Is Kenny Omega Joining WWE?
The return to action of the Best Bout Machine comes as it looks increasingly certain that he’ll be staying with AEW for the foreseeable future. It’s been widely reported that the star along with the Young Bucks and Adam Page have contracts coming up relatively soon and WWE held an interest in securing their services. However, it seems that any possibility of the switch is now off the cards.
A new update revealed that WWE has given up on trying to sign Kenny Omega as the company believes he wants to stay with AEW.
