Kenny Omega is a belt collector and that could come with a bit of a scheduling conflict. Some fans at the recent Impact Wrestling tapings thought that Don Callis double booked the Impact Wrestling Champion, but that isn’t the case.
A rumor has been going around that Kenny Omega is double booked on August 14th. He is already set to defend the AAA Mega Championship at TripleMania against Andrade El Idolo, but some thought that Don Callis said that Omega would be working another show on that same date.
During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez cleared up this confusion. Apparently, this was a case of mishearing things because two event names were so similar.
“During the Impact Wrestling television tapings, Don Callis said that Impact Wrestling wanted Kenny Omega to defend his championship at the Resurgence pay-per-view, and that’s the New Japan show on August 14th. I believe that is the same day as TripleMania, August 14th, so that obviously begs the question, ‘is he somehow going to wrestle in California and somehow fly to TripleMania? Is he not working TripleMania? What is going on here?”
“What is going on is that Callis was misheard. What he actually said that Callis said that they wanted Omega to defend his title at Emergence which is different from Reemergence, that’s where the confusion came from. There was a divergence in the Emergence. He is not working both show on the same day. He will be working TripleMania and Emergence.
It will be interesting to see how long Kenny Omega carries all of those titles. It can’t be fun getting through airports with all of that hardware, but that is one of the trials and tribulations that comes with being one of the best wrestlers in the world today. If anything, we know now that Omega won’t be double booked on August 14th.
