On the latest episode of Impact Wrestling, Kenny Omega diffused the explosive effect of Rich Swann to finish it off with a One-Winged Angel, pinning him to win the gold. 

Former WWE Superstar Chelsea Green was quick to praise Omega for his performance and acknowledged the gravity of his achievement in a recent post on Twitter.

Kenny Omega is now AEW World Champion, AAA Mega Champion, and Impact World Champion. This means that he will be trotting around on his high horse as a triple champion of 3 major wrestling promotions.

Make no mistake, Omega is the only one to do it and this full-blown heel role makes him a sort of Thanos collecting Infinity Stones. He is also the only wrestler to win AEW, AAA, NJPW, and Impact World titles, a truly phenomenal record. 

Now that he has collected yet another scalp, Omega may turn back to NJPW right into the fiery eyes of Will Ospreay, who currently holds what the AEW Superstars wants- the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship. 

This match is certainly a possibility, given that Tony Khan is all for breaking open the Forbidden Door and collaborating with others. Kenta already collated the crossover with Jon Moxley, and now, we may see Kenny Omega head over to familiar territory once more to battle it out in one of the biggest matches in recent pro-wrestling history. 

Chelsea Green, Samoa Joe, and Mickie James set for Impact return?

Dialing it back to Chelsea Green, she is amongst the many huge talents that were released by WWE last week and is currently a free agent. However, she may not be a free agent much longer.

These stars never managed to get the best from WWE over the past few years, and Impact seems to be the right option for them. It really is an open-world game for wrestlers, and one simply cannot miss out on the action.
