Kenny Omega and Don Callis were interviewed by IMPACT Wrestling color commentator Josh Mathews about his huge AEW World Title win and what his future holds.
Kenny Omega said in the interview that following his AEW World Title win, he now collects other world titles from other promotions, possibly including the IMPACT World Title.

The Observer also indicates that no mention was made of which event or PPV the AEW World Champion will be headlining, but IMPACT’s next big show is the January 16th Hard To Kill special and AEW and IMPACT Wrestling is reportedly considering a blockbuster World Champion vs. World Champion Match, possibly for that event.
This week’s episode of IMPACT also featured a segment where IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann was told by security that he could not go through the parking lot because “the champion,” that being AEW World Champion Kenny Omega had a list of people who were given approval for entry and this upset Swann, who was denied entry in the parking lot, where Omega’s bus was parked.
