Last night’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling featured yet another appearance from top AEW Stars Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy of Private Party and Matt Hardy. Quen, Kassidy and Hardy appeared in a promo, which was pre-taped and during the promo, Quen, Kassidy and Hardy discussed their growth as a tag team, and they also discussed becoming the #1 Contenders to IMPACT Wrestling Tag Champions the Good Brothers at No Surrender.
Hardy then talked about their goal on winning tag team gold in both IMPACT and AEW. Private Party not only has an IMPACT Tag Team Title Match at No Surrender, but they also have an opportunity to earn an AEW World Tag Team Title shot against the Young Bucks next week on Dynamite in a Battle Royal.
Since winning both the IMPACT and the AEW Tag Titles means that they will have more fame and fortune, Hardy said that he was so eager to enhance his riches that he offered more money to Private Party, so that he can motivate them into success.

Speaking of AEW Stars appearing on IMPACT, AEW CEO Tony Khan and AEW announcer Tony Schiavone made an appearance on last night’s IMPACT episode as well. In yet another paid ad, Khan said that his actions in IMPACT Wrestling, such as his involvement in last week’s main event, are “all just a game” to him.
Khan then said that IMPACT is like his own personal fantasy league and in week one he already has the #1 Contenders to the IMPACT World Tag Team Titles in Private Party, a team that has come from AEW. He then said that everyone from AEW is “in the zone” right now.
