Kenny Omega has officially signed with All Elite Wrestling.
He made his first appearance for the promotion at tonight's AEW Double Or Nothing Ticket Announcement Party at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. He said he and his friends will now be able to show wrestling fans what "change the world" means.
Omega noted that he didn't sign his AEW contract until this morning. He became a free agent on February 2 after his contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling expired. He reportedly turned down a significant offer from WWE to join his friends Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks in AEW.
He's being billed as an Executive Vice President, the same title that Cody, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson all share. Omega also said he is a full-time wrestler for AEW.
