Kenny Omega returns on AEW Dynamite, advances in Trios tournament with Young Bucks


Kenny Omega is back.

Omega ended up being the surprise mystery partner of The Young Bucks on Wednesday’s AEW Rampage, defeating Andrade el Idolo, Rush, and Dragon Lee in the opening round of the AEW World Trios Championship tournament. This was Omega’s first match since last November, where he lost the AEW World Championship to Hangman Page at Full Gear. Omega scored the win for his team, pinning Dragon Lee with the One Winged Angel.

The closing moments of the show had Andrade and Rush turn on Lee, with Andrade laying out Lee with the hammerlock DDT and removing his mask. Omega and The Bucks were seen heading toward the ring as the show faded to black.

With the win, Omega and The Bucks move on to the second round. They will next face the winners of a match between Death Triangle (PAC, Penta Oscuro, and Rey Fenix) and NJPW’s United Empire (Will Ospreay, Mark Davis, and Kyle Fletcher) on next week’s Dynamite.

Back in March, it was reported that Omega was recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery and was scheduled to repair a sports hernia later that match. He also said that he was suffering from vertigo during his matches prior to taking time off.
