Kenny Omega Absent from NJPW Event - WWE or AEW Bound?

Posted By James Walsh on 01/05/19


Elsewhere on the NJPW card, Taichi got a pinfall over Intercontinental champion Tetsuya Naito in a tag team match after nailing Naito with the belt. Taichi then challenged him to a match for the title. Also, Chase Owens and Yujiro Takahashi helped Tama Tonga, Tonga Loa, and Taiji Ishimori retain the six-man tag titles during the event. As a result, Owens and Takahashi were welcomed back into the Bullet Club.

– Notably, Kenny Omega did not appear at today’s event after losing the IWGP heavyweight title the day before to Hiroshi Tanahashi at Wrestle Kingdom 13 at the Tokyo Dome. It’s been reported this week that he received an alleged “fantastic offer” from WWE. He’s also rumored to possibly be joining his Elite stable mates in the new promotion, All Elite Wrestling.
