|Headquarters||Cameron, North Carolina, United States|
|Founder(s)||Haxz Islam, Thomas Simpson
Matt and Jeff Hardy
|Owner(s)||Matt and Jeff Hardy|
The company was established in 1997, OMEGA was run and created by Matt and Jeff Hardy with help from Thomas Simpson. They began the promotion because, at the time, there weren't many places to wrestle, nor did they know anyone who could help. Both Matt and Jeff Hardy took apart the ring and put it back together at every event they had, while Matt Hardy sewed all the costumes worn in OMEGA. Compared to other contemporary independent federations, OMEGA stood out because it incorporated high-flying wrestling, hardcore matches and gimmick matches into its shows.
The promotion folded in October 1999, after both Matt and Jeff Hardy had signed with the World Wrestling Federation, leaving the other wrestlers to make careers for themselves, with many moving onto NWA Wildside.
Matt Hardy has announced that OMEGA returns on May 25th at E. Wake High School in Raleigh, N.C. The main event of the show will be Matt Hardy and Hurricane Helms vs. Steve Corino and CW Anderson.
