Kenny Omega vs. Rich Swann is happening, according to the latest report courtesy of The Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer.

Meltzer states that Swann, the current Impact World Champion, will dethrone Moose of the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Impact's upcoming Sacrifice special on Impact Plus on 13 March. This will then set him up to defend both titles against Omega, the current AEW World Champion, at the Rebellion pay-per-view on 24 April.

Reportedly, the Swann vs. Moose showdown was taped during Impact's recent tapings at the beginning of February ahead of its scheduled air date. It makes sense for the bout to happen, of course; Rich granted the TNA champion a shot at the legitimate World Championship, with Moose yet to actually receive this opportunity.

Having both the Impact and TNA championships defended against 'The Best Bout Machine' would play nicely into what Omega stated in his first Impact promo back in December. He's a belt collector, after all - why would he not want both titles?

No other matches have yet been confirmed for either Sacrifice or Rebellion, although Omega will defend his AEW World Championship before meeting Swann. Jon Moxley challenges him on 7 March at AEW Revolution in the company's first exploding barbed wire deathmatch.
