Backstage Reactions To Kenny Omega, AEW And IMPACT Working Together

The wrestling landscape was changed on last week's Dynamite, when it was revealed that Kenny Omega would appear on IMPACT wrestling.

We've seen how things have unfolded with dream matches being discussed, but Fightful Select was able to report some initial reactions:

Lots was made about IMPACT Wrestling working with All Elite Wrestling after Kenny Omega and Don Callis announced the former would be appearing on Tuesday's IMPACT show.

Some within IMPACT Wrestling had heard of the news, but were told there wasn't much to it when they'd asked management about it at the most recent set of tapings. Several in AEW had also heard that Don Callis would be coming in to work an angle, but weren't sure the extent of it.

Almost nobody that we spoke to expects a "full crossover" to come from it, but wrestlers in IMPACT are happy about the buzz cast on their show. This was not the first pitch between the companies, which we hope to have more on in the coming weeks.

Omega was not at the most recent set of IMPACT Wrestling tapings, and most expect him to film his segment on Monday or Tuesday. IMPACT has some names flying in to do some work early in the week.
