I saw Omega vs Swann/Moose is title vs title. Moose vs Swann is to "unify" the Impact title and TNA title Moose has carried around for months. 

Seems odd never the less.

It literally depends on who you read - some are saying it is just title vs title but there are others saying that it was announced as a "unification match"

I am gonna lean towards it being just a title vs title match

Yeah, it was not explained very well. Hopefully they can clarify it soon. I can't see them dropping their main title to AEW.

Does anyone remember when WWN tried to have a title that was defended like the NWA title between Evolve, FIP, Progess, etc? It didn't work, for a multitude of reasons. Can't see Impact and AEW sharing a world title.

Either way this is going to make IMPACT like crap.  There is no way Kenny Omega is jobbing to either one of them.   At best we have to hope some AEW guy comes and causes him to lose.    Maybe IMPACT numbers have gone up in the last 2 months to justify it but given how they have been treated I am not sure how they have looked good in this join.

Awesome main event. Dug the mid-air cutter from Swann and then Moose's backflip fallaway off the top was amazing. Look forward to Swann/Omega. Confused by the Rhino turn, seemingly blowing up everything they had set up for the future with Rhino & Heath as a team. Knockouts tag was solid work from both teams. Good match and victory for Ace Austin. Deonna looked great in her match as usual. Really enjoyed the tag title match, didn't expect a title change but a very good finishing stretch. Pretty good show overall

For me Moose vs Kenny is just a better match. Not that Swann vs Kenny is gonna be bad. 

I guess FinnJuice is in Impact for a bit with them winning the tag belts. 

Wish Jazz and Jordynne had won. Just so Jazz could have another title run before she retires.

They’ve been building Swann/Kenny, and it’ll be good, but I’ll be damned if Moose/Kenny wouldn’t have been more fun.

Maybe Kenny win and they do Kenny/Moose with Moose "saving" Impact's title?

Given that Heath just had surgery to fix 3-4 issues, he may be out of action for quite a bit.

That's where I'm thinking this goes. What I would like to see happen: Kenny beats Swann, maybe with a bit of a fuck finish involving the Good Brothers. I mean, Kenny will win but do enough to not make Swann look like shit for losing while also making it clear that Kenny didn't need the interference to win; it was just done in service of being a dick. This could spin off GB vs Swann and Mack (is Mack still around? If so, are he and Swann teaming? If so, have him save Swann from a beatdown. If they were feuding, this could be his return/face turn). Moose declares that he is going to save TNA/Impact's honor. Have him chase Kenny. Moose is big enough that Kenny could play chickenshit heel and not sacrifice his aura. I'm sure the eventual title switch will have some kind of fuck finish but I hope it ends with Moose convincingly beating Omega. It's a simple storyline that writes itself. As long as noone gets too cute or wants to outsmart the fans, Impact has themselves a very solid few months of story set up. 

Enough fantasy booking. This was a solid show with some really good wrestling. It also had some piss-poor announcing. I hate Matt Striker's commentary. I wish I could organize a letter writing campaign to get him removed and replaced with almost anyone. If Hell exists, my own personal version is living with a constant running commentary track featuring Stiker and Mauro. D-Lo isn't bad but he's not good enough to save it.

Positivity. Moose/Swann was really good. I love that both guys entered the arena in serious mode. This felt like it had stakes because neither man came down smiling or dancing. Swann's bump off a backdrop early on was awesome. Moose's fall-away slam variation of a Spanish Fly was really impressive. TJP/Ace Austin was fun. I really dig Ace Austin and am hoping he gets some AEW screentime if there is ever any crossover between the two companies beyond the Good Brothers and Omega. Purazzo looked great.

Something I noticed about the Knockouts is that across that roster there are many body types. It's refreshing compared to WWE where most of the women are super thin, outside of a few. AEW's women's roster, outside of two or three exceptions, is the same way. Impact has some skinny women and multiple thicc girls. I appreciate it, both on an "It's cool to see that they value talent and representation over wanting skinny, tradtionally good looking women"  level and on a "Calm down, Razornetico" level.

I will admit, I skipped chunks of the show. Eddie Edwards, at this point where he's turned into a walking ECW tribute, doesn't do anything for me.
