8 Booking Steps For Kenny Omega As IMPACT World Champion

7. Facing Rich Swann At AEW Double Or Nothing

The lack of Rich Swann - or any IMPACT talent, for that matter seeing as The Good Brothers are too close with Kenny Omega to be considered a major deal in this scenario - on AEW programming in the build to Rebellion was odd.

It felt as if AEW didn't care about promoting the company they're working alongside. IMPACT gave up main event spots to AEW roster members like Private Party and weekly slots for paid ads courtesy of Tony Khan and Tony Schiavone, yet, Rich Swann wasn't even appearing on Dynamite.

That changes in the build towards the third Double or Nothing pay-per-view on Sunday, 30 May.

Swann is likely to receive a title rematch vs. Omega at some point, perhaps after defeating Moose at Under Siege to wrap up their story arc. As great as it would be to have this go down on IMPACT's shows, do the second bout on AEW programming. A pay-per-view no less.

Now, a little behind the scenes note here; your writer had originally planned to include Eddie Kingston, having Swann challenging for the IMPACT title and Kingston challenging for the AEW title in the same bout. It's too convoluted, though, even for a promotion like All Elite Wrestling.

A straight-up Rebellion rematch is enough to warrant a marquee AEW pay-per-view spot.
