REPORT: WWE Wanted To Sign Kenny Omega


It was reported this week that Kenny Omega (along with The Elite) had re-signed with AEW.

According to Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there was “significant interest” from WWE in signing Omega:

“As noted, WWE had significant interest in Omega, whose deal time frame had expired on 2/1 but his time frame was extended due to his taking nine months off via injury. The other three were under contract until the end of 2023 so WWE wouldn’t have been able to pitch for them for many months”.

“No formal offers could have been legally made for months but Omega was No. 1 on the company’s most wanted list. All four would have been in a great position in an open market so Khan must have made a strong deal to get them to stay without even strongly playing the WWE card. The Young Bucks, Page and Omega were repped by Barry Bloom in their negotiations, who has also in the past been the agent of Paul Levesque and is the current agent of Chris Jericho, Bill Goldberg and others”.
