Kenny Omega NJPW Contract Update, Omega Vs Cody Rhodes Plans, 'MLW: Zero Hour' Full Card For Tonight

- Kenny Omega signed a new one-year contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling this past Tuesday, according to Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Omega's contract was set to expire on January 31st, so he is now with the company until January 31, 2019. That not only puts him out of this year's Royal Rumble, but next year's as well.

- The Observer also noted that the current plan is for Omega to face Cody Rhodes on April 7th at ROH Supercard of Honor XII. He noted that there is a chance that they save it for the Cody Rhodes' upcoming 10,000-seat "All In" arena show on September 1st.

- Speaking of Omega and "All In", he confirmed on Twitter that he will be a part of the event. The location hasn't officially yet been announced. Other names who are set for the show include Arrow star Stephen Amell, who teamed with Neville to defeat Cody and King Barrett at SummerSlam in 2015, The Young Bucks, Marty Scurll and Hangman Page.
