It has been over a month since Kenny Omega and Don Callis revealed their plan to the world. After winning the AEW World Championship, Omega and Callis began working on both Impact and AEW shows.
This has led to The Good Brothers appearing on AEW Dynamite and Omega wrestling at Hard To Kill. Now, Omega has opened up about the idea to bring the two promotions together. Speaking with TV Insider, Omega said that he thought wrestling needed a shot in the arm. Here is the quote:
“It just felt like wrestling needed a shot in the arm. It could have come from anyone, [but] it just so happened I had a good idea—something unique that I was in a position to pull off and had the support to do. We thought, ‘Let’s pull the trigger on this and get people talking. Let’s take the first step in trying to unite a large fan base that has very much been divided.’”
“I went to IMPACT, [Lucha Libre] AAA [Worldwide] and back to AEW, so I have been able to see three different rosters—all incredibly talented, regardless of what fans say is the best. As a performer, I’d love to work with each and every one of them. It’s exciting that we’ve blown the doors wide open and there are all these potential opponents. I just hope as we present these new matches, the fans enjoy watching them as [much as] we enjoy performing them.”
Kenny Omega has defended the AEW title and the AAA Mega Championship since declaring himself a belt collector. He will likely attempt to add more titles to his collection soon enough.
