This past Monday night’s episode of Dark: Elevation saw AEW World Champion Kenny Omega interrupt Alex Marvez interviewing Konosuke Takeshita in a backstage segment. Omega told Takeshita he must repay him for all the help DDT has given him by helping him deal with Matt Sydal and Mike Sydal.
Takeshita then didn’t take long to give his response as he immediately agreed to take on Matt and Mike Sydal on next week’s episode of Dark: Elevation thinking he would be tagging with the AEW World Champion, but Omega told Takeshita that he would be teaming up with MT Nakazawa, which kind of upset Takeshita.
The official Twitter account of AEW then revealed that despite claims made by the AEW World Champion, AEW President and CEO Tony Khan did not approve Kenny’s proposed match and instead, he is forcing AEW World Champion Kenny Omega to wrestle in a 6-Man Tag Team Match when he teams with Konosuke Takeshita and Michael Nakazawa to go up against Matt Sydal, Mike Sydal and Danny Limelight.
Omega then took to Twitter and said he is doing what he can to help this show out as he wanted to get Takeshita a little more work while he is there, but when the match was announced, Kenny Omega took to his Twitter yet again and said, “This is my thanks?!?!” Takeshita took to Twitter as well and thanked AEW President and CEO Tony Khan for the match.
