It looks like AEW and Impact have taken their relationship to the peak since the promotions have dropped a major announcement on their social media handles. 

In a recent post on Instagram, Impact has confirmed that AEW Champion Kenny Omega will fight the Impact World Champion in a Title vs Title cross-promotion match. 

The Impact World Championship is however in contention as the reigning Champion Rich Swann is set to defend his title against Moose on the next episode of Dynamite. 

The winner of these two will face Kenny Omega in the huge showdown which is undoubtedly the highest point in the crossover. Note that this is not a winner takes all match but just a clash of titles. 

Kenny Omega has been the poster boy for AEW ever since he won the AEW World Championship from Jon Moxley. Acting as the face of the company, he has truly moved up the pecking order of popularity and is currently one of the hottest commodities in the business.

He is undoubtedly one of the most experienced professional wrestlers on the planet, having wrestled across most of the major promotions, including NJPW. 

AEW has allowed Kenny Omega to unleash his full potential

AEW’s attractive contract allows its stars to wrestle across different promotions, which is why it offers a lot more freedom. Tony Khan has kicked open the forbidden door and has managed to rope in active collaboration with NJPW, which is groundbreaking news. 

If AEW does manage to rope in the bigger names like Hiroshi Tanahashi, it will surely evolve into a competition with WWE’s Raw and SmackDown.
