AEW World Champion Kenny Omega will reunite with two of his former Bullet Club stablemates as he makes his Impact Wrestling in-ring debut next month.
It was announced at the end of tonight’s episode of Impact that Omega & Impact Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows) will face Impact World Champion Rich Swann & The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) at Impact Wrestling’s Hard to Kill pay-per-view. The PPV is taking place on Saturday, January 16.
Throughout tonight’s Impact, Omega met with Anderson, hyping him up for his match against Sabin in the main event. Anderson proceeded to defeat Sabin after rolling him up, grabbing his tights. Omega and Don Callis, who were seen watching the match on a nearby bus, celebrated Anderson’s win.
The closing segment of the show saw Swann confront Anderson backstage about the finish. Gallows, who had been out injured, then returned and attacked Swann and The Motor City Machine Guns, who had come in to make the save.
It was here that Omega arrived, taking out Swann with a caution sign. Omega taunted Swann, telling Callis to show Swann the AEW World Championship title belt. Callis said it was the real World Champion’s belt. Omega then proposed the six-man tag team match for Hard to Kill and Callis made it official.
The finals of the Impact Knockouts Tag Team title tournament will also be held at Hard to Kill. Tasha Steelz & Kiera Hogan advanced to the finals tonight, defeating Rosemary & Taya Valkyrie. The winners of the Havok & Neaveh vs. Jordynne Grace & Jazz semifinal match will meet Steelz & Hogan in the finals.
