Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks believed to be staying with AEW instead of jumping to WWE

In early 2023, it was reported that WWE is interested in signing Kenny Omega away from AEW. Following the July 19th 2023 edition of AEW Dynamite that featured a Blood and Guts steel cage match, Kenny Omega cut a promo to the live crowd and said as long as he’s an active wrestler, he’s going wherever the Young Bucks go.

According to Dave Meltzer of, the “prevailing belief” is that Omega and The Young Bucks will be staying with AEW. Meltzer brought up that while nobody involved has confirmed what Omega’s line meant, it was supposed to air on television which is why people think they are staying with AEW.

Meltzer also noted the following…

“We do know from a WWE standpoint that months ago they had the impression they had a good shot at Omega in 2024 and he was the most coveted of all the guys being talked about like Jay White and the others. That has gone cold so they do believe he’s staying with AEW.”

Meltzer added that AEW President Tony Khan’s contract offers could indicate that the company is expected to get a “huge” television rights deal increase.
