Cody Rhodes on wanting Kenny Omega to join AEW

Cody Rhodes vs Kenny Omega

Kenny Omega is one of the most coveted free agents in the world. The former IWGP Heavyweight Champion is rumored to either be heading to the WWE or All Elite Wrestling, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

Cody Rhodes was recently a guest on the Breaking Kayfabe podcast, and while he was talking about All Elite Wrestling, was asked about Kenny Omega and if they expected to see him join the company soon.

Kenny’s a free agent, and genuinely the hottest free agent in the world. One thing I really like about the group of friends and The Elite group is, no matter what he decides to do, if he decides to go to WWE, if he decides to go to AEW, he’s still part of The Elite, and everyone supports whatever decision that he makes.

I obviously want him to be a part of what’s happening because, who am I kidding, I’m late to the party that is The Elite. I got added in phase 2, he’s an original Power Ranger. I’d really like him to join us, but time, and what’s most important to him, will kinda be the factor there. Money is one thing, creative freedom is another.

  • It’s so obvious he’s AEW bound, why are people still debating this?

    I honestly do not see him going to WWE, so the only choices is gonna be signing with AEW or a return to NJPW (or maybe even a similar contract to Jericho where he can do both).
    I do think though he may feel he has done all he needs to do with NJPW, so AEW has to be the most likely berth for him.
