Backstage News On Kenny Omega – Impact Wrestling Future – AEW World Champion Kenny Omega is reportedly scheduled to return to Impact Wrestling on Tuesday’s episode, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Omega made his Impact debut this past Tuesday in a sitdown interview with Executive Vice President Don Callis, who is expected to act as his manager moving forward. Josh Mathews conducted the interview. The Observer reports that Omega is also scheduled to headline, at least, some Impact pay-per-view events.
Impact has not officially announced Omega’s return for next Tuesday night as of this writing, but it’s possible they confirm the appearance during Saturday’s Final Resolution event on Impact Plus.
On a related note, AEW and Impact are reportedly considering a big World Champion vs. World Champion match for next year.
This week’s Impact episode also featured a segment where Impact World Champion Rich Swann was told by security that he could not go through the parking lot because “the champion” had a list of people who were approved for entry as his bus was parked in the lot, with “the champion” being Omega. This upset Swann, who was not allowed to go through the lot.
The parking lot segment was “absolutely” the first step towards a potential Omega vs. Swann match for 2021, according to PWInsider.
Omega’s interview this past Tuesday night included references to Omega being interested in winning some of the gold that Impact has to offer. The Swann segment aired right before the bus interview with Omega.
The next Impact special event after Saturday’s Final Resolution event is the Hard To Kill pay-per-view on Saturday, January 16. There’s no word on if Swann will be Omega’s first Impact opponent or if Omega will wrestle at Final Resolution, but we will keep you updated.
IMPACT Wrestling has just confirmed Kenny Omega will make a return appearance on their show this week, seven days after he participated in a sit-down interview with Josh Mathews.
