The ending to this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite was certainly a shocking one as Kenny Omega became the AEW World Champion after getting help from Don Callis. Callis then announced Omega will be on Impact Wrestling next week.
So it seems the two companies have formed a working partnership. On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that “the Callis thing has been in the works for a while.” It was “presumed” that Don Callis was the one who thought of the idea and Tony Khan agreed with it.
“It does open up the doors for people which is great for Impact because some of their guys are going to end up on AEW television probably.”
It was also said that “AEW is wanting to work with people right now.” The two promotions will be interchanging talents and that could lead to some interesting matchups.
