We previously noted that Kenny Omega’s contract with New Japan runs out of January 31st and several people within the company have stated that he already renewed with the promotion. For those who were hoping that he would appear at the January 29th Royal Rumble event, he would still not be allowed without violating his terms with New Japan.
It’s also worth noting that he has just been booked for the Wrestling Star promotion on January 28th in Chile, the day before the Royal Rumble. So the chances of him making a “surprise appearance” in The Rumble are now next to nothing.
