Kenny Omega celebration, W. Morrissey appearance set for Impact


This story was updated at 1 PM Eastern.

Following his victory over Rich Swann to claim the Impact Unified World title at Rebellion, AEW World Champion Kenny Omega will be hosting an in-ring celebration on this week's Impact Wrestling.

In a long match that main evented the show, Omega pinned Swann after hitting the One Winged Angel to add the Unified title to his collection that also includes the AAA Mega championship.

The show will also feature the TV debut of W. Morrissey (the former Big Cass). It's unclear whether he'll be in a match or just an appearance.

Morrissey was a surprise debut at Rebellion, aligning with Violent By Design and subbing in for the injured Eric Young. Morrissey, Cody Deaner, Rhino and Joe Doering defeated Willie Mack, Eddie Edwards, Chris Sabin and James Storm. Morrissey got the win on Mack after the East River Crossing and kept attacking Mack after the match.

Also announced for Thursday:

  • X-Division Champion Josh Alexander vs. Ace Austin: Alexander won the title Sunday after defeating Austin and TJP in a three-way.
  • Taylor Wilde vs. Kimber Lee: This will be Wilde's first match in more than a decade and first Impact appearance in nearly 11 years.
