A new report says WWE made Kenny Omega quite the contract offer!
New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 13 is now in the books (check out Andrew’s Ratings & Review) and we have a new IWGP Heavyweight Champion as Hiroshi Tanahashi defeated Kenny Omega to win the title for an eighth time.
As you would expect, Omega’s loss has of course led to loads of speculation regarding where he’s off to next, as his deal with NJPW is set to expire at the end of the month. With Cody, The Young Bucks and Hangman Page all officially a part of the upstart All Elite Wrestling now, some feel that is the inevitable landing spot for ‘The Cleaner’, while there have been reports that Omega is much more of a wild card when it comes to where he decides to go.
On the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reports that one possible destination is really making a push for Omega’s services as it’s said that the WWE has made a “fantastic offer”. However, no other details were given on exactly what that could mean.
EA’s Take: There certainly is no denying that WWE making a pretty quality offer for Kenny Omega is a big possibility. Here’s the problem with Meltzer now though…we all know he’s in AEW’s pocket. I can’t blame the guy if it’s giving him good info and exclusives, but at the same time it will make it very hard for a lot of his readers to take what he says regarding AEW, and for that matter The Elite in general, seriously. So just like I did with most every other story surrounding these guys’ futures, I’m holding off on leaning one way or the other on this.
