Young Bucks Help Kenny Omega Retain Impact Title at Against All Odds

AEW star Kenny Omega is still the Impact Champion, defeating challenger Moose at the Against All Odds Impact Plus special on Saturday. The match ended in controversy, as Omega pulled the ref in front of him to avoid a spear from Moose. While the ref was incapacitated, AEW Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks attacked Moose with a Superkick Party, allowing Omega to score the pinfall. After the match, Sami Callihan, who was booked to face the winner at Slammiversary in July, attacked the Young Bucks, only for Don Callis to pull his Impact EVP card and fire Callihan to the dismay of fellow Impact executive Scott D'Amore.

In non-title action, Tenille Dashwood, with some interference by Kaleb with a K, defeated Jordynne Grace by surprise rollup while Grace was distracted yelling at her partner, Rachel Ellering, at ringside. W. Morrissey defeated Rich Swann with three powerbombs in a row. A five-way match to determine the next contender for the X-Division Championship ended when Madman Fulton interfered to take out Chris Bey, Rohit Raju, Petey Williams, and Trey Miguel at the behest of Ace Austin. Joe Doering defeated NJPW star Satoshi Kojima in a singles match.

Impact Wrestling's next big event is Slammiversary, taking place on July 17th on PPV. That show is expected to feature Sami Callihan vs. Kenny Omega for the Impact Championship, though Impact will have to find a way around Callihans firing over the coming weeks to get to that point.

Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
