The reason why Kenny Omega has been off AEW television since winning the trios titles

As seen during the January 11th 2023 edition of AEW Dynamite, The Elite defeated Death Triangle in a ladder match to capture the trios titles. However, a visa issue almost prevented the match from happening.

In an update on the situation, Dave Meltzer of noted that Kenny Omega has been off television for the past two weeks due to a visa issue. Meltzer wrote that Omega “badly wanted to be at the show in Lexington because he loved Jay Briscoe but was unable to be there.” The hope is that Omega will be able to return on next week’s Dynamite in Dayton, OH but it’s “not a lock” at this point.

The Young Bucks did appear on the stage during this week’s Dynamite in Lexington, KY to pay tribute to Jay Briscoe.
