As previously noted, AEW talent and staff were reportedly told that Kenny Omega is “nearing a return” to the company.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com commented on Omega as well as CM Punk and Bryan Danielson…
“I mean, he’s [Kenny Omega] hoping to be at All Out, but it’s too soon to say that he will or he won’t… He’s hoping for it. That’s kind of the target right now. The Chicago show I think is the target for that, I think it’s the target for Punk, but I don’t know that either of them are sure things.
Also, it’s probably the target for Danielson, too. Which, would, all those guys coming back, would probably give them a shot in the arm, but like you know, Omega basically was, doesn’t want to talk about it and nothing’s for sure but he would like to be back for that show. That would be a good idea.” (quote courtesy of RingsideNews.com)
