It looks like AEW is setting up something that is sure to be ‘Elite’.
On Wednesday night’s Dynamite, the company aired another tease centered around The Elite (Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks), and it appears that the implication is that Omega and the Bucks could potentially make an appearance at AEW Full Gear, which is scheduled for Saturday, November 19, 2022.
Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks Are Getting Closer To An AEW Return
The tease Wednesday night featured AEW Full Gear graphics, with photos of The Elite’s past mixed in, and there would also be pictures of the trio growing up thrown in there as well. A clock would also be featured in the video as well, ticking throughout.

For the past few weeks now, AEW has been teasing the return of Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks on their programming. In the very first promo, it showed big moments that The Elite experienced during their time in the company, however, they were shown disappearing in each frame. At the very end of the video, the All Elite Wrestling logo would then pop up, also evaporating from sight.
After CM Punk‘s comments at AEW All Out’s media scrum in September, a backstage brawl would break out between Punk (with his trainer Ace Steel), and the entire Elite of Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. As a result, both sides would be suspended from the promotion. Later, it would be reported that Steel was released from the company after their investigation, with Punk and AEW negotiating a buyout from the former’s contract.
What’s interesting about CM Punk’s situation, however, is that All Elite Wrestling just recently released new Punk merchandise. The ShopAEW website would drop its “Holiday 2022 Ornament” series, and featured in the collection was a limited edition “CM Punk 2.5 Inch Round Glass Ornament” — only 200 of them are for sale
