Kenny Omega-Karl Anderson have reunion at Impact Final Resolution


With Impact Wrestling's Final Resolution special being taped in advance, AEW World Champion Kenny Omega appeared on the show on the same night as he defended his AAA Mega Championship at Triplemania.

It was announced during Final Resolution that Omega and Don Callis were outside of the building in Omega's bus. Later in the show, Callis did an interview outside of the bus and was asked if Omega planned on getting involved in the show. Callis said there's no way he would allow Omega to get involved in Final Resolution. Callis said Omega was there visiting family.

That family ended up being Omega's former Bullet Club stablemate Karl Anderson. He met with Omega and Callis on Omega's bus and reminisced with Omega about the good old days. Anderson said he'd love to talk with them all night, but he had to go wrestle Ethan Page. Callis said Anderson could beat Page in a couple of minutes and be back in time for cocktail hour.

Anderson said it might take a little longer than that, but Omega and Callis told him that the Machine Gun Karl Anderson who made the 2012 G1 Climax finals wouldn't even need a minute to defeat Page. Anderson asked if this was a roast. Callis said they just wanted Anderson to come back so they could get on with the partying. Omega called Anderson an inspiration and asked if the 2012 G1 finalist version of Anderson was gone. Anderson got hyped up and said he'd show them the Machine Gun.

Anderson defeated Page in their match. If Page won, The North (Page & Josh Alexander) would have gotten a shot at Anderson & Doc Gallows' Impact Tag Team titles. Gallows didn't appear at Final Resolution following a previous attack by Page.

Omega didn't appear again on Final Resolution after his segment with Anderson. The segment is available to watch below:

Omega will make another appearance on Impact this coming Tuesday. Dave Meltzer has also reported that the plan is for Omega to "headline at least some Impact PPV shows."

Omega is facing Joey Janela in a no DQ match on Wednesday's AEW Dynamite. If Janela wins, he'll get a future shot at Omega's AEW World Championship.
