Tony Khan has not responded as of yet but this interaction only builds intrigue for Impact’s next episode on AXS TV.This will be Impact’s first episode since their Hard To Kill event which saw AEW World Champion Kenny Omega pin Impact World Champion Rich Swann in the main event.
Only two matches have so far been announced for the show with Jordynne Grace and Jazz teaming up to take on Kimber Lee and Susan.Eric Young will also take on Rhino.
The working relationship between Impact and AEW began with Impact executive Don Callis helping Omega defeat Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship.Since then, Omega has been reunited with Impact Tag Team Champions and former Bullet Club stablemates, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson.
Former WWE Intercontinental Champion and MMA legend, Ken Shamrock has not appeared in Impact since November 2020.He took on Rich Swann in a losing challenge for the Impact World Championship.
Current Impact ring announcer Dave Penzer also took to Twitter to further hype Tuesday’s show.Penzer said:
“Trust me on this one. YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS #IMPACTonAXSTV THIS TUESDAY NIGHT! Spread the word…”
