Reports are making the rounds that Kenny Omega’s in-ring return might be around the corner for AEW. When is he scheduled to perform?
Good news for fans of AEW, as it appears Kenny Omega might be close to making his return to television and ready to step back into the ring. After missing multiple months nursing an injury, Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer recently reported that an Omega return could be right around the corner.
During a recent post, Meltzer explains that the Young Bucks vs. FTR III match that was scheduled is now being held off because a major angle planned has yet to take place is in the works. That rumored angle involves Omega and Fightful Select is corroborating that report that, in fact, Omega is involved. They’ve added that the tentative plan going around to certain staff members is that Omega and the Young Bucks are slated for a six-man tag program for September’s All Out PPV.
It was not reported who their opponents would be, but that’s not the big story here. That Omega is being booked for a match in September suggests he’ll be back before then, which is great news for the company. Injuries have decimated them and it will be great to have some of their bigger names (Omega among them) return.
It is being reported that the rumored September match has yet to be confirmed, thus things can change.
Kenny Omega hasn’t been on AEW programming since November when he lost his AEW World Championship to Hangman Page. Speculation was that Omega was thinking about pushing up his return to be part of the Forbidden Door show but didn’t want to rush things and risk further injury. It was probably a smart decision as that event is being talked about as one that would become a yearly thing and Omega will be part of future productions.
A healthy Omega in AEW is a better AEW. His return will be a welcome sight for fans.
