The crossover between All Elite Wrestling and IMPACT Wrestling officially began on tonight’s episode of IMPACT on AXS. The show was promoted around an interview that Josh Matthews is going to conduct with Don Callis and AEW World Champion Kenny Omega. During the program, a ‘paid ad’ aired featuring AEW President Tony Khan and AEW announcer Tony Schiavone.
Tony Khan took subtle jabs at IMPACT during the ad, mentioning that he could stop Omega from appearing on the show by saying that it’s a breach of contract, addressing the longstanding rumor that he was interested in purchasing IMPACT and Tony Schiavone stated that he once worked an IMPACT show and then left the business for 18 years.

The lineup for the 12/9 Dynamite was promoted as well. POST Wrestling and upNXT’s Davie Portman will have a review up on the site following IMPACT going off the air and there will be a podcast review of tonight’s show on the upNXT feed.
Tomorrow’s Dynamite will feature interview segments with Shaquille O’Neal and Sting and both of those are going to be conducted by Tony Schiavone.
