Change of scenery. One of the more interesting wrestling stories of the year so far as been Impact Wrestling working with All Elite Wrestling. This has included some names appearing outside of their main promotion, including Kenny Omega becoming the Impact Wrestling World Champion back in January. Becoming champion means you have to defend it though, and now Omega is going to have a bit of a unique title defense.
This week’s edition of Impact Wrestling featured a special summit between executives Scott D’Amore, Don Callis and Tony Khan. During the segment, an announcement was made that Omega’s title defense against Moose at Against All Odds on June 12 will be held at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville Florida. The rest of the show will take place at Skyway Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.
This could be an interesting change. Check out the summit and the two of them in action:
Opinion: I’m not sure how much of a difference this is going to make, but what matters here is the fact that the match will be treated as something special. Impact Wrestling has not made many significant appearances on AEW TV but it does mean a little something to have the title match at Daily’s Place. Maybe it leads to a better status for Impact Wrestling when it comes to AEW, as the companies have not exactly been treated on the same level.
What do you think of the news? Who leaves with the title? Let us know in the comments below.
