Kenny Omega reportedly has had injury time added to the length of his contract.

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Omega’s contract does allow AEW to extend his contract expiration date by the number of days he missed due to injury. Reportedly, Tony Khan has activated that part of the deal due to various injuries to Omega to sidelined him for nine months. The report indicates that Omega’s deal was originally scheduled to expire at the end of January this year.

There have been rumors that WWE officials are interested in signing Omega if he becomes available. Sometimes rumors like that surface around contract renegotiation time for wrestlers, whether true or not, as it adds leverage to negotiations or it’s just a natural topic for officials in competing groups to discuss. PWTorch hasn’t independently verified rumors of WWE interest in Omega, but WWE officials are aware of Omega’s open-mindedness to landing in WWE before his career is over. WWE already acquired one of AEW’s original executive vice presidents in Cody Rhodes. Omega is a top in-ring performer of his generation. He will turn 40 later this year and has a lot of wear and tear from his ring style. He has spoken about that recently.

Omega returned to AEW from his nine month absence before the All Out PPV event. At that show, Omega and The Young Bucks won the AEW World Trios Championship. Prior to that, Omega’s final show was the 2021 edition of Full Gear. On that show, Omega lost the AEW World Championship to Adam Page.

In addition to being away from AEW due to injury in 2022, Omega was suspended from the company for the spat after the All Out PPV event with CM Punk. Punk and The Elite reportedly got into a physical altercation backstage after Punk went on a tirade against them and Adam Page during his post-PPV media scrum appearance with Tony Khan.

Omega has been a part of the AEW roster since the company’s inception in 2019. He is a former world champion, tag team champion, and currently holds the trios championship with The Young Bucks.
