Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks haven't been seen in AEW since they won the Trios Championship at All Out but an MCU-style teaser has hinted that may change.

Omega along with Matt and Nick Jackson helped found the company (alongside Cody Rhodes) but they were stripped of their Trios Championship and removed from television following what is now widely known as 'Brawl Out,' the backstage altercation which happened after CM Punk's appearance at the post-All Out media scrum.

During the scrum, Punk had called out the Bucks and Omega, who are Executive Vice Presidents in AEW, by saying: "We have irresponsible people who call themselves EVPs and couldn’t f**king manage a Target."

But it seems the return of The Elite to television is imminent and AEW has taken influence from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Avengers: Endgame's Thanos Snap to tease it.

On Wednesday's edition of Dynamite (October 26), a video played showing clips of Omega and The Bucks during important moments in AEW's history.

Clips included the moment AEW was officially announced during the January 1, 2019 edition of Being The Elite and the Young Bucks becoming tag team champions.

But, in each clip, the trio disintegrated and were burnt out as if Thanos had just snapped his fingers. The video even ended with the same happening to the 'E' in AEW.

The video of the Elite followed a report by PW Insider on Wednesday that the trio were backstage at Dynamite in Virginia.

AEW's next pay-per-view is Full Gear which will take place on November 19. The show will be headlined by Jon Moxley vs MJF for the AEW World Championship.
