Tony Khan, the President of AEW, was on Oral Sessions where he spoke about the AEW - Impact Wrestling Invasion Angle. The invasion angle started after Kenny Omega won the AEW World Title. Omega won the title about a month ago.
Ever since the angle started, Omega has appeared on most Impact Wrestling shows. A six-man main event match at Hard To Kill took place as a result of the invasion. Rich Swann, Moose and Chris Sabin fought the team of Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers.
A soft reunion of the Bullet Club was also seen at the end.
Tony Khan on Impact Wrestling Invasion Idea
Tony Khan also made appearances multiple times on Impact Wrestling inside various ads. Khan actually bought the advertisements for their own weekly show Dynamite.
Tony revealed that the Impact Wrestling invasion plan was actually Kenny Omega’s idea. "It was Kenny's idea," Tony Khan announced. "He asked me about it, and I love good ideas. I don't do every idea.
But this is something that Kenny brought up that I thought was a great idea. He put a lot of thought and time into this. I give 100 per cent of the credit to Kenny. "Don Callis and Kenny have a very close relationship and, you know, I think that was behind it, but I also think Kenny believed that Don would be a very powerful advocate for him; the role of a really, really strong heel manager for Kenny as the top heel in the territory.
Really, I think Kenny is the top heel in wrestling right now. I think that's what people wanted to see... I think people were really ready to see this Kenny Omega. He was excited to present it. He put so much thought into innovating and changing.
That's why I think the two best wrestlers in the world are Kenny and Jon [Moxley]." Khan stated that he was very surprised at how enthusiastic fans from both AEW and Impact Wrestling were, to see him in the paid advertisements.
"People seem to like them, and that's why we kept doing them," he said with a chuckle. "It's great because it promotes our show, and it also keeps the storyline with them going. When we first did it, I didn't know that people would enjoy them as much as they did.
I didn't plan on doing them for as long as we have. They've gotten a great reaction, and it's good for both companies."
