This past Saturday night’s IMPACT Wrestling Slammiversary PPV Event saw Kenny Omega retain his IMPACT Wrestling World Title against Sami Callihan in a brutal No DQ Match. Immediately after the match, the AEW and IMPACT World Champion Kenny Omega celebrated his huge title victory in the middle of the ring with IMPACT Wrestling World Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers and Don Callis.
The celebration would then be cut short by NJPW Star Jay White, who is also the leader of Bullet Club as he was making his way down to the ring with his NEVER Openweight Title in tow. Jay White then made his way inside the ring and was offered the “too sweet” hand gesture by Omega and The Good Brothers.
Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that the Slammiversary Event ending the way it did with Jay White weighing his options and not reciprocating the “too sweet” hand gesture from Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers has been the plan all along as the company wanted to leave an open ending to get the fans to tune in to this Thursday’s IMPACT Wrestling to see what is in store and what will happen next.
A fan took to Twitter and said that the last time Kenny Omega and Jay White had a match, which was at NJPW’s The New Beginning in Sapporo 2018 Event for the IWGP U.S. Championship, in which Jay White won and took the title from Omega, it was a huge battle of epic proportions. Omega would then take to his Twitter and respond to the fan when he wrote, “Not denying the loss or anything, but we don’t need to revisit this.” “It was a one-time thing. That’s it.”
AEW World Champion Kenny Omega also took to his Instagram account and posted an emoji of a door, most likely referencing the “forbidden door” between pro wrestling promotions. Based on the AEW and IMPACT World Champion’s response, it looks like he has no interest in facing the NJPW Star, but we will have to wait and see what Jay White’s response is to Omega’s comment and how all of this will play out.
