Kenny Omega made his hotly-anticipated AEW return on last night’s Dynamite, teaming with Elite stablemates The Young Bucks to fell La Faccion Ingobernable in the first round of the ongoing Trios World Championship Tournament.

If it wasn’t beforehand, that Omega would be the Bucks’ mystery partner was made abundantly clear on this week’s Being The Elite, which closed on a short snippet of the former World Champion’s entrance theme. So it transpired, with Omega walking out to a great reception following a typically lengthy Justin Roberts introduction.

Omega was victorious in his first AEW appearance since November 2021, picking up the pinfall on Dragon Lee to secure The Elite’s second-round passage in the tournament.

Much of the match revolved around leveraging very real health concerns into pro wrestling drama. With vertigo, knee and shoulder issues, a sports hernia, and more on his injury list, necessitating his extended time away from the ring, Omega wrestled in a back rashguard with a shoulder brace over the top, sold his knee, and kept some of his more explosive moves in the chamber. That he wasn’t operating close to 100% registered as a performance – and a smart one.

Kenny had taken time away from AEW after losing the World Championship to ‘Hangman’ Adam Page at Full Gear 2021. ‘Hangman’ will surely now factor into the ongoing Elite saga, with his Dark Order friends on the opposite side of the tournament bracket.
