All Elite Wrestling EVP Kenny Omega isn’t against working with WWE, if a potential scenario came up in the future.
Speaking with Wrestling Observer Radio, Omega spoke on the idea of WWE approaching AEW for a potential working relationship.
“If, for some reason, WWE came knocking on our door and said, ‘hey, we would love to do a talent switch or tradeoff, or work together on something, I’d be all for it,'”
Despite his executive role in the company, Omega joked that he wasn’t sure if AEW founder Tony Khan would welcome such a deal.
However, he does believe that a talent exchange would benefit fans, and and propel pro wrestling’s popularity.
“Whatever benefits the wrestling fan must always come first,” Omega stated. “When you start thinking about fantasy scenarios, if wrestlers crossed over like that, it gets really exciting.”
While a partnership is unlikely, Omega does feel it would be a win-win situation for current fans, even if they cannot create new viewers.
“I think this is the kind of shot in the arm that wrestling needs,” Omega stated. “Will we succeed in attracting more viewers than we already have at the table? We would never know until we tried.
“And even if we are unable to create new fans, it’s still a win-win because you’re only to going make the current fan happier,
Kenny Omega also spoke on a more likely situation, improving relations between All Elite Wrestling and New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
“If word of mouth travelled that some really good wrestlers from another country are wrestling on Dynamite, it could really help both companies. End of the day, it’s all about satisfying our fans, and that’s what we’re striving for.”
