The Weekend SteelChair Shot: Impact Wrestling, AAA, AEW (20/10/2019)

AEW has just announced The Young Bucks vs. The Best Friends for Wednesday’s Dynamite episode. Both teams were eliminated from the tournament to crown the first-ever AEW World Tag Team Champions on last Wednesday’s Dynamite episode. The Bucks lost to Private Party and Best Friends lost to SoCal Uncensored.

Here is the line-up of this Wednesday’s show from the Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania:

  • Britt Baker in action
  • Jon Moxley vs. PAC
  • Tag Team Tournament Semi-finals Match: The Dark Order vs. SoCal Uncensored
  • Tag Team Tournament Semi-finals Match: The Lucha Bros vs. Private Party

Kenny Omega defeated Rey Fénix last night at AAA Heroes Immortales XIII to become the new AAA Mega Champion. At TripleMania, last August, Kenny Omega challenged Fenix who held the AAA Mega Championship.

Omega hit One-Winged Angel to become the new AAA Mega Champion. Fénix offered up a handshake after the match, but Omega passed and posed with his newly won title. No word yet on when his first title defence is and if the title will be on the line when Kenny Omega will face Jon Moxley at AEW Full Gear on November 9, as Omega revealed that he will be bringing the AAA Mega Championship to AEW.

At last night’s Impact All Glory special on Impact’s Twitch channel, it was announced Ace Romero has signed with Impact Wrestling. Romero will also appear in tonight’s Ladder Match for the Impact X-Division Championship at Bound for Glory (streaming live on Fite TV). Romero will be joined by X-Division Champion Jake Crist, Tessa Blanchard, Daga, and Ace Austin.

Romero has previously wrestled for Major League Wrestling and countless indy promotions in the USA, including Sami Callihan’s Wrestling Revolver. He made an appearance in the Casino Battle Royale on the AEW Double or Nothing: Buy-In earlier this year.

Impact World Tag Team Champion Ethan Page recalled a time when he got “talked to” for tweeting about TNA. He then joked about Impact Wrestling bringing back a TNA-themed event during WrestleMania weekend.

The tweet received a response from Matt Jackson, posting just a photo of when he and Nick were in TNA as Generation Me. The duo worked for the promotion from 2009-2011 and made a one-off appearance in 2013.

Impact Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore retweeted Jackson and replied he would love to see Generation Me vs. The Motor City Machine Guns again on the show. The Bucks have not replied yet, like Sabin or Shelley.
