Kenny Omega Set to Return to AEW

Kenny Omega, the former AEW World Champion, is poised to return after months of absence. Omega has not appeared on AEW television since December 2023, when he declared his hiatus due to a diverticulitis diagnosis. This led to the cancellation of his planned AEW World Tag Team Championship match with Chris Jericho against Ricky Starks and Big Bill at Worlds End.

Last month, Kenny Omega was fired from The Elite by The Young Bucks when they introduced Omega’s rival, Kazuchika Okada. The Young Bucks revealed that Kazuchika Okada is the new member of The Elite, giving Omega another huge blow.

Fans had been wondering for months when they would get to see Kenny Omega back in AEW. It appears that in a few weeks, fans will finally see the former AEW champion on Dynamite. The next episode of AEW Dynamite is set to take place in Winnipeg. The official account of the Canada Life Centre announced on X (formerly known as Twitter) that the episode of Dynamite will also feature Kenny Omega.

The return of Kenny Omega has been announced; however, it is not clear what Omega will be doing on Dynamite. His return for AEW Dynamite in Winnipeg was also teased by Tony Khan in the post-show press conference of AEW Dynasty.
