Kenny Omega, the Young Bucks and Adam Page of the faction The Elite have re-signed with AEW.
They have reportedly renewed their contracts and signed multi-year deals with AEW.
There had been interest in at least Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks from WWE, but the company was reportedly unable to make contact due to contract tampering concerns and especially the ongoing MLW lawsuit.
Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks will remain AEW Executive Vice Presidents.
Tony Khan told Sports Illustrated:
“The Elite have been so important to the launch of AEW, with the Young Bucks going all in when I first approached them in 2018 about my dream to create an international pro wrestling promotion
“Shortly after that, their partners and closest friends Kenny Omega and ‘Hangman’ Adam Page joined us to formally launch All Elite Wrestling.
“All four of them have been instrumental to AEW’s success from the very first episode of Dynamite in 2019 through the present day.
“Now, as we celebrate tonight’s 200th episode of Dynamite, I’m excited to share that Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, and Hangman Adam Page will all be staying in AEW for years to come.
“We look forward to celebrating the great news with fans around the world.”
Kenny Omega said:
“Our original goal was to create a wrestling alternative and give a platform to talented people that we’d all felt deserved a spotlight.
“I feel like we did our best in that time, and hopefully some people you’d never heard of pre-AEW are folks you enjoy watching today.
“Or if you knew them from their previous work elsewhere, have maybe found a new appreciation for them.
“That feeling, combined with the feeling of knowing they can provide for themselves and their family doing what they love, was always the biggest reward of being an EVP/founder.”
