AEW's Kenny Omega set for title vs. title match at Impact Rebellion


Kenny Omega is putting his AEW World Championship on the line in a title vs. title match at next month's Impact Wrestling Rebellion pay-per-view.

This week's episode of Impact ended with the announcement that Omega will face either Rich Swann or Moose in a title vs. title match at Rebellion on Saturday, April 24. The AEW World Championship and the Unified Impact World Championship will both be on the line in the match.

Swann is the current Impact World Champion, while Moose is the self-proclaimed TNA World Heavyweight Champion. It was announced on Impact tonight that Swann vs. Moose at this Saturday's Sacrifice Impact Plus special will be a unification match with both of their titles on the line.

Rebellion will be the second straight Impact PPV that Omega has headlined. Omega made his Impact in-ring debut by teaming with Impact Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows) against Swann, Moose & Chris Sabin at Impact Hard to Kill this January. The finish of the match was Omega pinning Swann after hitting the One Winged Angel.

Omega retained his AEW World Championship by defeating Jon Moxley in an exploding barbed wire deathmatch at Sunday's AEW Revolution PPV. With help from interference by Impact Wrestling executive Don Callis, Omega became AEW World Champion by defeating Moxley in December. Omega then made several appearances on Impact programming leading into Hard to Kill.

After the title vs. title match was announced for Rebellion on Impact tonight, there was a brief segment where Callis was shown talking to Omega on the phone and saying that things went just as they planned.

Omega would become a triple champion if he wins the title vs. title match at Rebellion. In addition to holding the AEW World Championship, he's also the current AAA Mega Champion.
