Fightful Select reported today that Kenny Omega will make his return to AEW tonight on Dynamite by teaming with the Young Bucks against Andrade El Idolo, Rush, and Dragon Lee.
This has been speculated about for a while when it was announced that the Bucks would be teaming with a mystery partner.
Omega has been out of action since November due to multiple injuries, including a shoulder injury, a hernia, vertigo, and a leg/knee injury. Omega was able to rehab the shoulder while the leg/knee injury was also fixed.
Although Omega briefly went back on the road with AEW, he left again as he felt it slowed his recovery. He originally wanted to be back by Forbidden Door in June, but that didn’t happen.
As noted, plans for the Young Bucks vs. FTR match for the AEW, AAA, IGWP (NJPW) and ROH tag titles were discussed, but the plan was always for Omega and the Bucks to compete in the Trios tournament.
In July, some plans were changed, including the Bucks/FTR match. Talent was told that this was due to Omega’s return and the trios tournament.
Finally, Omega avoided being in public during most of his time away and instead worked on the Fight Forever video game, where his input was considered by one source as “crucial.”
