The WWE has been showing more and more interest on The Elite lately especially the IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega as they have been promoting his appearances and matches and showing more of him on the WWE Network. WWE is capitalizing on the buzz from his IWGP Heavyweight Title victory at Dominion. Just recently, WWE added a Kenny Omega Match on the Hidden Gems Section of the WWE Network.
