Results (via IMPACT) - A luxury bus is seen pulling up to Skyway Studios in Nashville, the home of IMPACT! Josh Mathews reveals that tonight, he will enter the bus and conduct an exclusive sit-down interview with the new AEW World Champion Kenny Omega!
Rich Swann is on his way out of the IMPACT! Zone when he’s stopped by security. The guard tells him that the champion has the parking lot blocked off. Swann thinks he’s talking about self-proclaimed TNA World Heavyweight Champion Moose but in fact, he’s referring to AEW World Champion Kenny Omega!
Josh Mathews enters the luxury bus of AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and Don Callis. As Josh tries to conduct the interview, he’s immediately cut off by Callis. History is made when Callis conducts the ceremonial changing of the nameplate on the AEW World Championship. Callis reveals that his plan to help Omega win the AEW World Championship has been in the works not for days, not for months, not for years, but for decades. It all started when Callis was trained 27 years ago by Omega’s uncle, The Golden Sheik. Callis was then introduced to The Golden Sheik’s nephew who was 10 years old at the time – Kenny Omega. Callis says he didn’t get back into this business to do a podcast, or to do commentary. He did those things because it was all part of the plan to be next to Kenny Omega when he became AEW World Champion. Callis says that he and Omega are family and they’re here to change the course of wrestling history, just like they did last week on AEW Dynamite. Omega recalls the time when he was avid comic book collector. Now, he collects titles and he has the rarest one of them all, the AEW World Championship. Omega says that he may even add the IMPACT World Title to his collection one day. But for now, they have to head to Jacksonville for a big announcement this Wednesday on AEW: Dynamite.
