Ever since Kenny Omega won the AEW Championship from Jon Moxley, wrestling fans have witnessed Omega and Don Callis appearing on both AEW’s and Impact’s primetime television shows. He was aided that day by Callis of Impact Wrestling, where it was a setup from the start on the December 2nd episode of AEW Dynamite on TNT from last year which had been called “Winter is Coming.” Just last week we saw in the ending segment of Dynamite feature Jon Moxley coming to help Rey Fenix as Omega was dishing out more punishment after the AEW Champion had regained his title defeating Fenix. Just when it looked as if Moxley was going to get his revenge on not only Kenny Omega, but Don Callis himself, here come The Good Brothers Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows to attack Moxley and we also saw a Bullet Club Reunion in the ring.
I said all of this because apparently a certain AEW Star took notice of such events happening against his promotion, and that was none other than Lance Archer. In fact the big man took to his Twitter account earlier just this week, it read he may need to “take a trip to the IMPACT Wrestling locker room soon,” this had many thinking Archer had two men in mind when he does come over and shows up on Impact’s TV – Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows. It appears they might be in trouble if “The Murderhawk Monster” has anything to say or do about the situation.
Lance Archer also said this in another tweet addressing Anderson, claiming The Good Brothers “won’t do that s—t to me,” which gave the implication calling out the Impact Tag-Team Champion’s toughness and they would not have the guts to come after Lance Archer.
Battlelines have been drawn in an inter-promotional war one would suspect, at least based on the storylines. Let’s face it, I feel it’s a smart and good move on each company’s part, by essentially working together and having their big stars appearing on television more I would imagine helps bolster ratings that benefits each show. Tony Khan with Don Callis and Scott D’Amore with help from talent are creating that surprise element that has been missing in professional wrestling. Now only time will tell with such an experiment regarding the working relationship we’ve been watching unfold between those two brands so far.
