When Kenny Omega lost the IWGP Heavyweight championship to Hiroshi Tanahashi at yesterday’s WrestleKingdom 13, speculation began that he would be leaving NJPW when his contract concluded at the end of this month. While the newly formed AEW is a viable option for Omega considering who runs the promotion, the WWE have certainly done their fair share of bidding to lure the 35-year old superstar from Winnipeg to join their ranks. As reported by the always reliable WrestleVotes, WWE won’t be faulted for a “lack of effort” if Omega doesn’t sign, as they have done everything within their power, including substantial financial offers, to get Omega to sign.
Texted a source regarding Omega & WWE’s offer to him. Got back “If they don’t land him, it’s not their fault for lack of effort. They’ve done what they can”
Translation: WWE wants Omega. I’m assuming the offer is strong, especially financially. Decision is all his at this point
