Rich Swann, Kenny Omega, Don Callis and Moose Segment
Rich Swann: If any y’all seen the press conference last week, your boy Kenny Omega, the man that’s supposed to be the best bout machine, Mr. Seven Star, he put his hand out to me, I look down at that hand and I made a mistake. Because right as I went to shake his hand, that boy smacked my mouth. And before I could even really get my hands on that boy, the security done pulled us apart. Well, you know what, Kennya? I ain’t trying to wait till Rebellion. You wanna put your hands on me? Come out here and do it again. Come on, Kenny, do it right now, do it right now.
Don Callis: Greetings everybody, look, it’s The Invisible Hand and The Greatest Wrestler in the history of the world, Kenny Omega. We’re here with you. Unfortunately, we can’t be in the building tonight.
Kenny Omega: Oh boy, I wish I could be there.
Don Callis: But don’t worry, because when the inevitable happens at Rebellion and you win the IMPACT World Championship, well, we’re not just gonna go and show off to Tony Khan and all the AEW Fans, we’re gonna grace AXS TV and IMPACT Wrestling with your presence as the new IMPACT World Champion, each and every week. We’ll be here, but we will be sticking it to people, and we will be reminding everyone about why you are a god of pro wrestling, Kenny Omega, what do you think about that?
Kenny Omega: Wow, some people call me an egomaniac, Mr. Callis, did you hear that? Some people think I have a right to that ego. And think, being a double champion, the AEW Heavyweight Champion, the AAA Mega Champion, you think it would give me a right to have a little bit of an ego, but allow me to stroke it just a little bit more. How bad is it gonna be after I add another championship belt to that collection? How bad is it gonna be when I’m a champion of three separate promotions, major promotions, mind you. This ain’t no kiddy stuff, three championships, four belts, I’m adding so much gold to the collection.
I’m gonna need yet another house, possibly in an foreign country, I’m gonna need yet another swiss bank account. And it’s only gonna get bigger and better from here. You talk about history all the time, Mr. Callis, we always warn these people in advance that we’re here to make history. Well, we already set the date, set a reminder in your calendar, set a reminder on your iPhone or mobile device, because at the next PPV, Rich Swann, you can consider that your last day as champion, but the first day of a very important day in wrestling history. It is yet another step in the career of Kenny Omega to world takeover. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Goodbye and goodnight, bang!
Moose: I’ve had a long time to think about what happened at Sacrifice. I showed you my hand, and as a true world champion, you took advantage of me, so congratulations. I’m actually here to give you advice. See, at Rebellion, you’re going to be going against a man who calls himself the god of professional wrestling. And you should be well prepared for this match because you just faced the wrestling god, Moose. And only you can answer this question. Yeah, Kenny Omega pinned you and you slipped one on me, but who really hurt you?
Who showed you what pain really feels like? We both know the answer to that question. And we both know that I’m stronger than Kenny Omega, I’m bigger than Kenny Omega, I’m faster than Kenny Omega and I’m more skilled than Kenny Omega. But Kenny does have something that I didn’t have at Sacrifice. There’s three stooges who would do whatever he tells him to do. But I’m sure you already know all these things I’m telling you. So, Rich Swann, at Rebellion, good luck. The advice I was gonna give you, you better not lose those titles to Kenny Omega or you will be paying the ultimate consequences to me.
Rich Swann: Yo, Moose. Rebellion, I’m gonna win that AEW World Championship, don’t worry. I’ll definitely have no problem pinning your ass again.
