All Elite Wrestling returns to the Sears Center in Chicago next week, the city and building where it really all began for the promotion. It has now been officially announced that the “Best Bout Machine” Kenny Omega will headline the AEW Dynamite taping, as he takes on PAC in a rematch from August’s ALL OUT pay-per-view.
Omega, who is also one of the company’s Executive Vice Presidents, has had a shockingly difficult time getting any momentum going thus far in his AEW career.
After losing to Chris Jericho at Double or Nothing, the former NJPW mega star then suffered an even-more-shocking loss to PAC over Labor Day weekend. And while the “L” doesn’t technically count, Omega also took the fall in his recent unsanctioned “Lights Out” match with Jon Moxley.
PAC, on the other hand, remains 4-1-1 in singles action in an AEW ring. He did suffer his first loss to Hangman Page at AEW Full Gear, but then immediately avenged the blemish on his record with a big win in the grudge match between them.
