Impact Wrestling's Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson made their AEW debut on tonight's Dynamite, saving Kenny Omega from an attack by Jon Moxley and aligning with Omega and The Young Bucks' The Elite.
Gallows and Anderson's debut came while saving Omega from an attack by Jon Moxley. The Young Bucks then joined the fray after other members of the roster tried to attack The Good Brothers and Omega.
The AEW announce team heavily pushed this as a reunion of "The Club" and "The Band," referencing this group's Bullet Club alliance in NJPW without mentioning Bullet Club by name.
Following Omega's successful AEW World title defense against Rey Fenix, Jon Moxley ran in to attack the champ with a barbed wire bat. Gallows and Anderson then entered to make the save for Omega. Omega, Gallows and Anderson proceeded to beat down Moxley and an army of undercard talent that hit the ring to try to fend off the attack.
The Young Bucks then ran in, seemingly to fight off Gallows and Anderson. Instead, The Bucks hit Griff Garrison and Brian Pillman Jr. with superkicks as they attempted to attack Omega.
Omega, Gallows and Anderson posed in the ring withe the "too sweet" Bullet Club hand signal and invited The Bucks to join. The Bucks seemed reluctant at first, but threw up the too sweet and the closing shot of the show was the five of them with their hands together in the pose.
The interpromotional angle between Impact and AEW kicked off on the December 2, 2020 Winter is Coming show. Impact executive and longtime Omega friend Don Callis helped Omega win the AEW title from Moxley on that show.
In the ensuing weeks, Omega, as well as AEW announcer Tony Schiavone and AEW President Tony Khan have appeared on Impact programming.
Prior to tonight's debut of Gallows and Anderson, Callis had been the only Impact performer to appear on Dynamite in this interpromotional angle.
