Who came up with the AEW/Impact storyline idea Submitted by Aaron T-Bar Rift on 01/19/2021 at 04:54 PM
During an appearance on Renee Young's podcast, AEW President Tony Khan talked about how it was Kenny Omega's idea for AEW to have a working relationship with Impact Wrestling:
"He asked me about it, and I love good ideas. This was something Kenny brought up that I thought was a great idea. I give 100 percent of the credit to Kenny."
Khan also commented on attending an Impact Wrestling taping and having an idea for "buying" ads:
“While I was there, Tony Schiavone, who lives a couple of hours away, I said come hang out with me. And I came up with the idea, why don't we buy ads on Impact. It's great. It promotes our show and it also keeps the storyline with them going.” (quotes courtesy of F4WOnline.com)
