Early last month we got the massive announcement that All Elite Wrestling is the newest company in the wild world of pro-wrestling. One of the major stories of the early days for AEW was the fact that a number of top New Japan stars left the company to form All Elite Wrestling. However, even though Cody, Young Bucks, and Hangman Page left New Japan one name was still unaccounted for was Kenny Omega. For the longest time there was a question of where he would go it didn't matter if it was WWE, NJPW or AEW with most people wondering how long it would take for him to sign with All Elite.
Anyone who missed the recent press conference in Las Vegas not only did they announce the ticket sale for Double or Nothing at MGM, but they announced a new signing. Fact is it is now official that Kenny Omega has signed with All Elite Wrestling. In my opinion this is a fantastic signing for the new company as it gives another international star to hold down the fort and help build the foundation for the promotion.
Overall in the last two years I am not sure if anyone has gained more traction or risen up the ranks in the world of wrestling then Kenny Omega. From his classics with Okada to reforming with Ibushi and the tension with the Bullet Club it has been an incredible few years for Kenny Omega and things wont stop just yet. In my opinion the build to May 25 will help all those involved especially if they are staying out of the ring until then as it would let them all unwind, heal up and get ready for the biggest event in recent memory. Now I wouldn't think that Kenny immediately becomes a favorite to be champion, but he is definitely an interesting member of the roster as AEW continues to shape the promotion.
