Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks have been absent from AEW since September 4th and the infamous brawl after All Out.
On the show Omega had teamed with Matt and Nick Jackson to defeat the Dark Order and become the first-ever AEW World Trios Champions. At the post-All Out media scrum, CM Punk verbally attacked the trio and this led to a brawl backstage. While the exact details of the incident remain unclear, a number of suspensions were handed down to those involved.
On the following episode of Dynamite the Trios Titles were declared vacant without The Elite Appearing.
