Gedo took the belt off of him because he was unsure about Omega's status. Omega's contract runs until Jan 31st, so there's no way for a possible Royal Rumble surprise.
You are pretty much spot on every time you post something New Japan related, but wasn't AJ Styles in the exact same position a couple years back where we all thought there was no shot he could enter the Rumble based on his contract running through January?  Then AJ showed up.  It makes me wonder if that 1/31 date that keeps getting thrown out there is done for that reason.  Kenny Omega was extremely unhappy with WWE a dozen years ago when he was in Deep South, so if he never shows up I would not be surprised.  But if he turns down the rumored contract he's been offered to work for AEW, he'd better be getting a title like Cody and Brandi have so that he's not only making money as a talent but also as an executive.

Everyone is going to mkae more money as a talent than as an executive.  Being given a title doesn't magically give you anything except more responsibility for less pay.  Negotiating a percentage of the gate like the old NWA champions did is one thing, but a title is the last thing anyone should want unless they're willing to work their ass off 24 hours a day for a company like Cody and Brandi are willing to do. 

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
