Kenny Omega and Don Callis shocked the wrestling world at the end of this week's Dynamite, announcing that the newly-crowned AEW World Champion would be appearing on next week's edition of Impact Wrestling on AXS TV. AEW has previously mingled with other promotions, most notably the NWA, Lucha Libre AAA and New Japa Pro-Wrestling. But having the reigning world champion seemingly betray his own company in order to side with another could be the building blocks for an all-out invasion.
Wrestling fans were left buzzing over the news, hypothesizing just how big this crossover could get. Check out some of the reactions in the list below, and let us know what you think down in the comments!

Definitely Helps the Women's Division
If there is an actual crossover between AEW and Impact, and AEW gets custody of their Women's Division in the deal, this is good news for everyone.#AEWDynamite— Alex Pawlowski (@AlexSourGraps) December 3, 2020
