Kenny Omega is a very influential figure in AEW, and he is also their World Champion. That title reign started with a bit of controversy as Don Callis arrived in AEW to help him win that title. It also started a storyline between AEW and Impact Wrestling. Kenny Omega deserves all the credit.
Don Callis might say he is the Invisible Hand, and he’s able to do whatever he likes while pulling the strings. As Tony Khan talked to Oral Sessions, he made it clear that The Cleaner was the one who pitched that idea at first.
“It was Kenny’s idea. He asked me about it, and I love good ideas and I don’t do every idea. I try not to do the bad ones. And like I said that’s been something I try to do a better job of. Also, I don’t do every good one, sometimes because I don’t realize they’re good because I’m not perfect I make a lot of mistakes too and I think that sometimes there are also good ones that just don’t fit like ‘That’s a great idea but you can’t do it because that person is already doing this’ or ‘I can’t do it because we’re having another plan that we’re locked into’. This was something that Kenny brought up that I thought was a great idea. He put a lot of time and thought into it. I give 100% of the credit to Kenny.”
Private Party showed up in Impact Wrestling this week. They are now #1 contenders for the Good Brothers’ Impact Wrestling Tag Team Titles. This is a big push for them as the AEW and Impact Wrestling invasion now has a new focus.
We’ll have to see where all of this leads, but it was apparently Kenny Omega’s doing. Thankfully, Tony Khan liked the idea,
