2020 has been a very strange year and it appears we’ve only just begun.
On the most recent episode of AEW Dynamite, Kenny Omega defeated Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship with the help of IMPACT official Don Callis. Immediately after capturing the gold, Kenny and Callis sprinted out of the venue and informed the world that Kenny was taking the championship to Tuesday nights on IMPACT Wrestling.
Now, IMPACT has confirmed this news via social media. Kenny Omega will, in fact, be on IMPACT on Tuesday, December 8.
Speaking about a possible partnership between the promotions, Matt and Nick Jackson, who once wrestled for IMPACT as Max and Jeremy Buck, said that this is something that they wanted to do for a long time.
"Two years ago, this is something we brought up and wanted to get going. For whatever reason, it didn't work out. I don't know if it was more on our side or what, we just couldn't get everyone to agree on what the creative would be, but when we were stopping at all the Indie shows, that was one of the suggestions we had; what if we showed up in IMPACT? This is something we've been whispering in Tony Khan's ear for two years. We're all about collaboration and partnering with everyone and working together. Even with Ring of Honor and we got The Hardyz to come in when they were with IMPACT. This is something we truly wanted to do for a very long time. Finally, the timing was right and we got it done. It's still so early and all of us, collectively, don't know what it means. We're still dipping our toes in it right now and we'll see what we get out of it. There are immediate plans that I can't give away right now. My dream, if I had it my way, is the possible dream matches. How can you not jump ahead and fantasy book? You also don't want to get too ahead of yourself. Are we going to do that stuff? I'm not sure yet, we're still in the beginning of this, but there are some big surprises coming and I'm really excited about it," said Matt.
Also, the most recent episode of Dynamite saw the debut of IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Famer Sting. Check out our full review at this link.
