At the end of Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite, the start of a crossover or alliance between AEW and Impact Wrestling began as Impact’s Don Callis helped Kenny Omega win the AEW World title from Jon Moxley. After the match, Callis teased an appearance by Omega on next week’s Impact. Fightful Select has a report with some additional details.
Some backstage sources within Impact Wrestling had heard about the idea, but they were told by management that there “wasn’t much to it” at the last set of Impact TV tapings. Additionally, several people within AEW reportedly heard that Callis would be working an angle with the promotion, but they did not know its extent.
None of the sources expect this will turn into a “full crossover” between the two promotions. However, Impact wrestlers are said to be happy that this will bring some more buzz to the promotion. Also, this is not the first time with regards to a pitch between the companies to work together.
With regards to Omega appearing on next week’s Impact episode, Omega did not attend the most recent set of TV tapings. As of now, he will be filming his segment next week on Tuesday, December 8. Currently, Impact Wrestling has other names scheduled to be flying in to do work on that date as well.
