“I’ve heard that Impact Wrestling is looking to feature AEW World Champion Kenny Omega in a six-man tag on a pay-per-view called Hard To Kill. Kenny Omega, the AEW World Champion, wrestling on someone else’s pay-per-view. I certainly have the power to stop that, Tony. I could file an injunction, there’s a lot of things I could do.”

Khan then extended an invitation to Impact’s wrestlers to come to AEW Dynamite. “You know what, Impact Wrestling, you want Kenny Omega here wrestling your people, that’s fine with me. Tomorrow night, Wednesday Night Dynamite, you’re welcome to send some of your people to my show this week, any week.”

Is Khan looking to invest in Impact Wrestling?

After Schiavone plugged the Holiday Bash episode of AEW Dynamite, Tony Khan refocused his attention on Impact. He already has his eye on Impact’s talented tag team division. With teams like the North, Motor City Machine Guns, the Good Brothers, and more, Impact’s tag team scene is quite brilliant.

“And I understand you have some tag teams here yourselves, Impact Wrestling. I might go look around and see what they’re up to, see what their contractual status is,” said the AEW President. AEW’s FTR has already expressed their desire to face former Impact Wrestling tag champions The North.

Finally, Khan once again dropped a hint about purchasing Impact Wrestling completely. “You know what, Tone? For a company that’s hard to kill, $7 billion buys a lot of ammunition. So Impact Wrestling, let me tell you something – Kenny Omega, you’re welcome to have him at Hard To Kill. I’ll tune in, I’ll check it out, and I expect to see the AEW World Champion with his hand raised high.”
