It was a Bullet Club reunion to close AEW New Year's Smash night one as Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, and The Good Brothers embraced.
Omega has been appearing regularly on IMPACT television since December, but Wednesday's episode of AEW Dynamite marked the first time IMPACT talent had jumped over to AEW.
Speaking on Talk N Shop, Karl Anderson discussed the reunion.
"Our contractual obligations are to IMPACT and we made a surprise debut on AEW and, in my mind, it shocked the world. People probably thought it was coming, social media was going nuts. To say that it was fun and long overdue is an understatement. I still wish it would have happened last year , but do to it where we were and to have a live crowd of rabid AEW fans and them chanting 'Too Sweet,' which started in WWE for some reason, which Hunter hated. He really hated the 'Too Sweet, Woop Woop.' I'm not saying I love the sound of it, but at least they did it," he said.
Anderson noted that they weren't hidden away from other wrestlers to keep their appearance a surprise.
He wouldn't say if he and Doc Gallows would be back on AEW this week for New Year's Smash night two.
Omega is set to appear on Tuesday's episode of IMPACT. Omega and the Good Brothers will team at IMPACT Hard To Kill to face Rich Swann and the Motor City Machine Guns.
