Kenny Omega to AEW All Elite Wrestling after nixing WWE

Adjust Comment Print

All Elite Wrestling held a rally for their inaugural event, Double or Nothing in Jacksonville, Florida.

There was buzz that Omega was headed to WWE due to the company allegedly offering him creative control but Wrestling Observer Radio's Dave Meltzer reported this week that no such perk was offered by the McMahon family.

Also, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) wanted to sign Niven, but it appears she will choose WWE over them. Following the AEW rally, Jericho has been listed as a part of the WWE alumni.

Whilst so much has been going well for the new promotion, the company can not run on three wrestlers alone, and obviously will be needing to sign more talent soon.

The PAC announcement came after Hangman Page promised to be the first AEW champion.

AEW is the brainchild of another former WWE star Cody Rhodes - son of wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes - and The Young Bucks, an Indie sensation tag team.

While the showing of talent was impressive and the hype was definitely real, there were still a lot of deeper questions in the air about the future of AEW that weren't fully answered.

The arrival of AW comes at a very interesting time for professional wrestling.

Moving to AEW could, therefore, be flawless for Ryder, who at the very least would be allowed to wrestle, and heaven forbid, win matches!
