Kenny Omega is the hottest free agent on the market right now. At least, he was, but he might have already signed on with AEW.
BodySlam.net writer Cassidy Haynes has reported that one of his sources has spoken with Kenny Omega. When Haynes asked his source if he stated whether he was joining WWE or AEW, he said:
Well Kenny is going AEW.. Yeah. He literally just told me.
For now, we’re holding this to a rumor, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see Kenny Omega join The Elite in AEW. Not only would he be working with his friends, but the company has the money behind them to compete with the WWE and Vince McMahon, thanks to the president of the organization, Tony Khan, who is a billionaire and owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars of the NFL and Fulham F.C. of the Premier League.
With backing like that, AEW may be able to compete with the WWE in any bidding war that takes place.
