When Kenny Omega dropped the IWGP Heavyweight title to Hiroshi Tanahashi at Wrestle Kingdom 13 last week, the rumour mill went into complete and utter meltdown over his future in New Japan Pro Wrestling.

With his contract expiring on January 31 and no news of a fresh one being signed, it's increasingly likely that his future lies away from the Land of the Rising Sun.

And when you think about his fellow faction members Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks revealed All Elite Wrestling without him, you kind of have to think he may not be going with them either.

So that really leaves only one option left for a man of Omega's stature - WWE.

Of course, there has been long talk about him being the 'best wrestler in the world', and if you're that good, WWE will eventually want you on-board.

And according to several reports, the company have offered him a very lucrative deal to try and tie him down.

This is the same Omega that spent time in WWE developmental in the mid-2000s before returning to the indies, so you'd think if he was to go back, now being the elevated star that he is he would have such guarantees which would make him a success.

Kenny Omega is set for a move to All Elite Wrestling when his New Japan contract expires, says Dave Meltzer.

However, leading wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer has heard about Omega's next move and has reported as such on the Wrestling Observer Radio.

Per Cageside Seats, Meltzer has stated Omega's next move is 'likely' to join up with his pals at All Elite, despite the attractiveness of WWE and their offer.

It seemed obvious from the get-go after being aligned with The Bucks and Rhodes for years in New Japan and other promotions, but you can never be quite so certain in the wrestling business.

The Bucks' 'Being The Elite' YouTube series also teased that Omega would be joining forces with them come February 1, and if they do tie him down exclusively, that is another major capture for a start-up brand after the arrivals of Chris Jericho and PAC, formerly known as Neville in WWE.
