Kenny Omega’s New Japan Pro Wrestling contract is ending in a few weeks. Omega is expected to sign with All Elite Wrestling according to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer.

Meltzer noted in today’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that it looks like Omega is heading to AEW. The WWE did try to secure Omega to a fantastic deal, but according to sources within the WWE, that is not going to happen.

New Japan Pro Wrestling wants to continue to work with Kenny Omega, but in order to do so they may have to strike a deal with All Elite Wrestling. As of now, no deal is made, and New Japan is only working with Ring of Honor.

It was noted that a deal with All Elite could be made in order to retain the services of Omega.

New Japan Pro Wrestling, Ring Of Honor, and All Elite Wrestling had a meeting last week to discuss a possible partnership. New Japan will continue to work with Ring Of Honor, but chose not to have a relationship with All Elite Wrestling

Meltzer noted that although everyone was cordial during discussions, business took precedence over personal feelings.

It was also noted that Ring Of Honor does not want Cody and The Young Bucks to work the G1 Supercard event at Madison Square Garden. The trio has already stated publicly they are not involved in that show.

There is no official word on figures for the expected Omega/AEW deal, and plans can always change based on if New Japan or WWE can work out something better for Omega.

Omega recently stated in an interview with Tokyo Sports that he was leaving New Japan at the end of the month. New Japan reportedly found out Kenny’s intentions from this interview with the Japanese based publication.

Jon Moxley will be making his Game Changer Wrestling debut at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport 2 on September 14 in Atlantic City, NJ.

Bloodsport events feature matches that must end in either a knockout or submission. The ring features no ropes or turnbuckles, and the matches are presented in a MMA style. Although these bouts are worked, competitors work stuff and the matches have a semi-shoot feel.

At the last Bloodsport event Josh Barnett and Minoru Suzuki worked until a time-limit draw.

GCW and Josh Barnett are teaming up to bring back one of the most talked about events of the year when Bloodsport comes to The Showboat in Atlantic City on Saturday, September 14th!

It’s the ultimate hybrid. MMA meets Pro Wrestling in the most intense, physical, and groundbreaking event in years. Who will survive when shit gets real?

During today’s SummerSlam conference call Rollins added his thoughts on Moxley’s departure, implying he is taking money out of his pocket by joining the competition.

“I was surprised by it. I knew Ambrose needed time away from WWE,” Rollins stated. “Now he’s competition and trying to take dinner off my table & good on him.”

Rollins didn’t pull any punches on the WWE vs. AEW war that is on the horizon. He was very blunt in stating WWE will knock AEW ‘dead”, just like they have done with other promotions in the past.

We are going to knock them dead, just like we do everyone else.” – Seth Rollins on AEW
