When All Elite Wrestling began, many assumed that Kenny Omega would be the top singles superstar in the promotion. One year in and the main thing Kenny Omega has done is hold the Tag Team Championship with Adam Page.
Since losing that gold, Kenny has made it very clear that he wants to capture singles gold in AEW and The Young Bucks’ Nick Jackson has singled him out as the one to watch over the next year.
“I think year two’s going to be all about Kenny Omega. He’s been very ... what’s the word I’m looking for ... I guess ‘unselfish,’ and he’s ready to explode, So I would keep my eye on him. Another one off the top of my head would be Darby Allin. He’s got so much potential to be such a massive star for AEW that we have to use him in the right way, and he’s definitely going to be a top player,” Jackson tells ScreenCrush
Kenny Omega will have his chance for singles success as he has entered the number one contender's tournament to determine the next top challenger for AEW’s World Championship. Round 1 will begin this upcoming Wednesday and Kenny will be facing Joey Janela in the opening round.
