There is no doubt that Kenny Omega is one of the best wrestlers on the planet right now. He was one of the mainstays of AEW television since its debut back in 2019 and he was also the AEW World Champion for almost a year. Omega lost the title at AEW Full Gear to Adam Page and since then has been taking time off to recover from his injuries and undergo multiple surgeries.
Wade Keller of Post Wrestling revealed that Kenny Omega and Cody Rhodes’ AEW contracts are running out and at this point in time there is no indication that they have signed another contract with the company.
“There are people I’ve talked to in AEW who are looking at their contracts and wondering what their deal is gonna be next time when their first deals come up and how much leverage they’re gonna have with WWE or New Japan or heck, GCW with their ticket sales these days or the indie scene as an option to book yourself. It’s gonna be interesting to watch.
I have heard the intent and the hope is that Cody and Kenny and Tony all come to deals. There’s not signs that any of them want to leave or are disgruntled to the point that they shouldn’t be able to come to an extension but I don’t know the situation. Maybe Cody and Kenny already signed extensions and they kept it quiet. Actually, I’m pretty sure that hasn’t happened now that I think about it from people I’ve talked to. I think Cody and Kenny might be next in terms of signing extensions.”
