What's the story?

A lot has been made about the future of Kenny Omega and whether or not he will join 'The Elite' at All Elite Wrestling or will be tempted by a 'fantastic offer' from the WWE. Whilst the dust seems to have settled on Omega sticking with AEW, there's a possible new indication that he won't be alone.

In case you didn't know...

Kenny Omega is expected to announce he has signed with AEW after his contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling expires at the end of January, after already announcing his intention to leave NJPW in an interview with Tokyo Sports. Although he does allegedly have a WWE offer on the table that he is yet to officially turn down.

The heart of the matter

So what am I talking about when I say there's a new detail that suggests that Kenny Omega is heading to AEW and he potentially won't be alone in doing so? I'm also obviously not talking about 'The Elite'. No, I'm talking about free agent Kota Ibushi and the Golden Lovers reuniting for All Elite Wrestling.

So, an artist on Redbubble who goes by the Twitter handle @caramujokick tweeted that they'd had a copyright claim from AEW against a piece of art they had on their Redbubble site.

The piece of art in question was a 'Golden Lovers' fan-art. The copyright claim was from 'Creative Ventures, Inc' who are actually ProWrestling Tees, who we know have a deal to work on merchandise for AEW.

The artist also claims that several other people have received similar copyright claims for work surrounding Kenny Omega, Kota Ibushi and 'The Golden Lovers'. This makes sense as you'd expect AEW to start securing its intellectual property.


What's next?

If ProWrestling Tees, who are working with AEW, are getting artists to take down their unlicensed 'Golden Lovers' art, then that would surely mean that ProWrestling Tees are intending to make their own 'Golden Lovers' merch, which would, in turn, mean that 'The Golden Lovers' are AEW-bound.

We'll have to wait and see!
