Christian Cage is the new IMPACT World Champion. Cage defeated Kenny Omega for the title on the debut episode of All Elite Wrestling Rampage.
In the opening match of the show, it looked like Omega would retain his championship following interference from both Don Callis and The Young Bucks. The AEW Tag Team Champions slid a chair into the ring, with Omega’s intention of executing a One Winged Angel onto the chair. Instead, Cage hit the Killswitch onto the chair to pick up the pinfall victory.
This is Christian Cage’s first reign as IMPACT World Champion. Cage has previously held the top title for TNA twice, but this was the NWA iteration of the championship.
This will not be the only time that Omega and Cage will face off. It has been announced that Kenny Omega will face Christian Cage for the AEW World Championship at All Out on September 5th.
