2024 will be a crucial year for AEW President Tony Khan as many of the top stars’ contracts are set to expire. The current AEW World Champion MJF has said for a long time that his deal will be expiring later this year. Therefore, Khan is trying hard to sign MJF to a new contract.
Dave Meltzer reported that Tony Khan re-signed Rush for an insane amount of money. However, Kenny Omega, Young Bucks, and Adam Page haven’t inked new deals yet.
Last week, Kenny Omega did a promo after the Blood & Guts episode of AEW Dynamite went off the air. Omega said that he respects Blackpool Combat Club. He further said that he will stick with Young Bucks wherever they go.
In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Meltzer stated that AEW management believes The Elite will stay with All Elite Wrestling. On the other hand, WWE is also under the impression that Omega won’t join them.
“The prevailing belief is that the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and Adam Page are staying. The interview Omega did off the air in Boston would have led you to believe that is the case…
If that Omega thing was on television with the mention of them sticking together, that’s where so many people believed they were staying and there was a no deal. None of those involved have said if that is what that line meant. 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.”
