The Story Itself
During AEW’s ticket announcement party for Double or Nothing, several names come up for the upcoming roster. The last name on the list is none other than former IWGP Heavyweight champion, Kenny Omega.
Omega took to the stage to confirm his status in the new company. Not long after, Chris Jericho cut in and the two began fighting. Cody and So-Cal Uncensored broke them up. Many now believe this is leading to a match later on at Double or Nothing.

Ever since it became public knowledge that Kenny Omega’s New Japan Pro Wrestling contract was set to expire, fans and others kept guessing what he was going to settle on. Many thought he finally made the jump to WWE, after Vince McMahon offered an “unbelievably huge” contract. Once the Royal Rumble came and went, the chances of Omega showing up in WWE drastically decreased. Now, it’s official he will be a member of the All Elite Wrestling roster.
