During the night (Italian time), two really important pro-wrestling shows were aired, namely: Friday Night Smackdown and AEW Rampage, with the Khan family program which at its debut received several positive reviews from the public and professionals.
work, increasingly troubling the WWE and its product. The highlight match of AEW Rampage at the debut, was obviously the match valid for the title of world heavyweight champion of Impact Wrestling, the third most important federation of the United States, after WWE and AEW.
In the main event of the evening, the two athletes at the moment at the top of the roster of the Khan family company were involved and therefore the multi-champion Kenny Omega and his challenger, the former WWE champion Christian Cage.
Omega, in the main event of AEW Rampage, gave away one of his many titles, since until last night he held the title of heavyweight champion of the AEW, that of Impact Wrestling and then also that of the AAA.
Christian Cage already has a challenger awaiting him
In a match that seemed to immediately lean towards the favor of the reigning champion, thanks to the usual improprieties fielded by Kenny Omega and all his minions, in the end, it was the babyface of the dispute that prevailed, with Christian Cage who managed to hit Omega with his Kill Switch on a chair set up in the ring, on which in theory Omega wanted to hit his opponent and on which he ended up instead.
After this sensational victory, which for Christian means a lot, especially at the end of his career, now the former WWE will be expected in the rings of Impact Wrestling, given that he will have to continue to defend the title, just as Omega did in recent weeks.
under penalty of the vacancy of the belt. Now, the dates on which Christian Cage will return to the rings of his former federation, to which he moved more than 10 years ago, are those of August 16th at the Impact Zone and then of August 19th, also this month, in which he will take part in the next official episode of the company in which Scott D'Amore still pulls the reins.
What can I say, a second youth seems to have been born for Edge's fraternal friend in the rings of the various rival WWE companies. On Twitter, Carter took a trip down memory lane and noted that she hated losing Christian to WWE back in the day.
The former TNA president expressed her joy over his latest world title win and gave props to AEW's higher-ups for showcasing the cross-promotional match. "This makes me very happy. I will never forget how special it was when @Christian4Peeps 1st became @IMPACTWRESTLING World Champ.
I always hated losing him to @wwe. Welcome home Christian & massive props to @AEW for allowing these type of matches to happen. #makingwrestlingfunagain," Dixie Carter stated.
