According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE has made a “fantastic offer” to Omega as we head into WrestleMania 35 season.
It should be noted that Omega’s contract with NJPW expires later this month.
With that being said, Omega has quite a few options now (WWE, NJPW, AEW, ROH…).
Wrestling Observer also noted that NJPW, ROH & AEW will have a meeting this Saturday to discuss if they can work together moving forward, but there will be issues in that as AEW is trying to sign wrestlers to exclusive USA deals.
We’ll keep you updated regarding Kenny Omega’s status.
