Kenny Omega WWE Top Guy Prospects: Backstage News

Elite Superstars Kenny Omega, Adam Page, and The Young Bucks have put an end to the speculation surrounding their futures by re-signing with AEW earlier this week. While rumors had swirled that they had considered jumping ship to WWE, the latest reports suggest that WWE had its eyes set on Kenny Omega as their top target and envisioned him as a potential main eventer.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE showed significant interest in signing Omega had he become a free agent. However, since Omega was still under contract with AEW, no formal offer was extended to him or any other members of The Elite.

Moreover, WWE's ongoing legal battle with MLW has made them cautious about approaching contracted talents, as they want to avoid any further legal complications.

WWE's Potential Elite: Omega's Equal?

Insiders revealed that had Omega joined WWE, he would have been presented on par with top WWE Superstars like Cody Rhodes, Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns.

However, WWE's focus on long-term durability may have given Seth Rollins a slight edge over Omega in terms of priority. Despite WWE's interest, Omega's new deal with AEW ensures that such plans will not materialize. He is committed to AEW for the foreseeable future and might even consider retiring with the company he helped co-found back in 2019.

The 39-year-old wrestler emphasized that one of the key reasons for staying with AEW is the creative freedom and opportunities offered by Tony Khan's promotion. For now, AEW fans can rest easy knowing that Kenny Omega will continue to be a vital part of the promotion's roster and storylines.

His decision to stay with AEW reinforces the company's position in the wrestling landscape and solidifies Omega's role as one of the cornerstones of the promotion. As the dust settles on the contract negotiations, the wrestling world awaits the next chapter in Kenny Omega's career as he continues to showcase his exceptional talents in the AEW ring.

With his signature move, the "One-Winged Angel," and his magnetic presence, Omega's journey promises to be a captivating one for years to come.
