AEW Rumors: Kenny Omega, TV Deal with Turner, more


The following should be considered rumors related to the new All Elite Promotion that officially launched today:

-- Kenny Omega, who has indicated he won't be signing with NJPW, has received offers from both WWE and AEW and the indication is that he will be going to AEW.

-- According to this Reddit thread, while AEW did not make announcements pertaining to a new TV deal, they are rumored to be announcing a deal with TNT at the Double or Nothing event in May. This would be consistent with what we reported here, but this report goes on to say that AEW would air on TNT on Tuesday evenings live and run for either 90 or 120 minutes. (It should be noted that currently TNT runs the NBA on Tuesday evenings, so how that will be sorted out if this rumor is true, is unclear).

-- The above thread also suggests that several WWE performers - mostly midcarders but one main eventer - has reached out to AEW to inquire about employment, likely because they don't see much of a promising future in WWE.
