It’s a big year for AEW President Tony Khan as he looks to keep some of his biggest stars under contract, especially after the departure of Cody Rhodes last year, who has proven that a talent from AEW can jump ship to WWE and have a fair shot of success.
Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks are now in this spot where they will have to decide whether to stay with AEW, a company they helped launch, or jump to the rival promotion.
All three deals are slated to expire later this year. AEW wants to sign them to new deals before becoming free agents.
The Elite recently lost the AEW Trios Championships to the House Of Black. They’re slated to take on the Jericho Appreciation Society and House of Black on Dynamite with the titles on the line.
