Kenny Omega returns on AEW Dynamite, advances in the Trios Tag Title Tournament with the Young Bucks

Kenny Omega returned to AEW television on Wednesday night. Don Callis was joined the commentary team during the match.

Omega was the Young Bucks’ surprise mystery partner on Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite. They defeated Andrade el Idolo, Rush, and Dragon Lee in the opening round of the World Trios Tag Championship tournament. This was Omega’s first match since November, 2021 where he lost the AEW World Championship to Hangman Page at the Full Gear PPV.

Omega pinned Dragon Lee after hitting him with the One Winged Angel. During the closing moments of the show Andrade and Rush turned on Lee, with Andrade hitting Lee with the hammerlock DDT and then removing his mask. Omega and The Bucks were seen heading toward the ring as the show went off the air.

This past March, it had been reported that Omega was recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery and was scheduled to repair a sports hernia later that same month. In addition, he was suffering from vertigo during his matches prior to taking time off from in-ring action.
