Kenny Omega wins Impact World Championship at Rebellion


AEW World Champion Kenny Omega defeated Rich Swann at Impact Rebellion, winning the Impact World Championship.

Their match was a title for title match, meaning the winner would walk away with both the Impact and AEW World titles. Omega pinned Swann following the One Winged Angel. Swann held the championship for 184 days, defeating Eric Young at Bound for Glory back on October 24.

With tonight’s win, Omega is now champion in three different promotions. He has been AEW World champion since December, defeating Jon Moxley. He is also the AAA Mega Heavyweight Champion, pinning Rey Fenix back back on October 19, 2019.

Prior to the main event, an interview with Tony Khan aired where a second referee, AEW referee Aubrey Edwards, was added to the main event along with the Impact referee Brian Hebner. This did not play into the finish of the match, although Edwards did take away a steel chair from Omega towards the latter part of the match after a ref bump temporarily took out Hebner.

Other title changes on tonight’s show had Josh Alexander winning the X-Division title and the team of Jordynne Grace and Rachael Ellering winning the Knockouts Tag Team titles.
