History will be made on Sunday, April 25 when AEW World Champion Kenny Omega battles IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann at IMPACT Rebellion.
While Omega has been a regular on IMPACT television and Tony Khan has made weekly appearances via paid ads on IMPACT, there has been a distinct lack of IMPACT presence on AEW television. The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson) have been featured weekly on AEW, but Rich Swann never appeared on Dynamite and AEW has done minimal in promoting IMPACT Rebellion and Omega's match.
Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Tony Khan explained why.
"People have asked me why I haven't gone out and spent a lot of money promoting [IMPACT Rebellion]. It's when I've gone to [IMPACT}, I've had to pay to buy ads. It's on [IMPACT]. Kenny Omega will be wrestling for the IMPACT World Title. It's possible Rich Swann could be AEW World Champion next week. It's also quite possible Omega will be IMPACT World Champion. It'll be interesting," he said.
An ad for IMPACT Rebellion did air during Wednesday's broadcast of AEW Dynamite.
In a previous interview, Khan noted he will be at Rebellion and will be bringing AEW referee Aubrey Edwards with him. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
