Kenny Omega Pins Rich Swann, Wears Bullet Club Shirt

AEW World Champion Kenny Omega made his in-ring debut for IMPACT Wrestling – whilst wearing a Bullet Club t-shirt!

Teaming with current IMPACT Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers, The Cleaner would meet his counterpart, IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann, face-to-face in a match that may very well have changed the landscape of wrestling as we know it.

Swann would team with TNA World Champion Moose, who replaced Alex Shelley in the match, and Shelley’s Motor City Machine Guns partner, IMPACT legend Chris Sabin.

Following a monumental Bullet Club reunion recently on AEW Dynamite and several weeks of build on IMPACT Wrestling, the stakes for this match could not have been higher.

A thrilling encounter would see AEW’s World Champion Kenny Omega pin IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann before Omega, Don Callis and The Good Brothers stood tall in the ring with a too sweet.

Speaking recently with Inside The Ropes, Don Callis said he and Omega an do whatever they want in wrestling due to the power they currently hold.

“Kenny Omega and Don Callis are in such a powerful position right now that we literally can do whatever we want. We can write our own ticket.”

In a recent interview with The Good Brothers and NJPW’s Rocky Romero, the latter told us.

“I love that, especially in a world right now where there’s really just one company that’s the leader of this, right? They’re just so massive that some of these other companies who are really doing great things – like IMPACT, New Japan, AEW – if we can all kind of be friendly and work together, I think it’s important to keep professional wrestling f***ing growing worldwide, and that’s an important part of it.“

Fans in the UK & Ireland can catch IMPACT! every Wednesday on FreeSports at 10pm, and AEW Dynamite shortly after, at 1am, via Fite TV.
