Scott D’Amore Segment 

Scott D’Amore: This past Sunday at Rebellion was a historic night. Not just for IMPACT Wrestling, but for the entire wrestling industry. And as everybody is well aware, we have a new IMPACT Worlds Champion in Kenny Omega. So, congratulations to Kenny. I’d also like to tip my hat and pay my respects to Rich Swann for his amazing performance this past Sunday. And I think it’s pretty common knowledge in the wrestling industry, that when a champion loses his title, traditionally he gets a rematch, automatic. But Rebellion was an unprecedented situation with that title vs. title main event. And Rich Swann and everybody, all parties involved knew that this was an unique situation. One night, winner take all situation. And there was no rematch clause. So, it’s seems that we have to get down to getting a number one contender.

And that’s why, May 15th at Under Siege, there’s gonna be a six way match to determine the number one contender for Kenny Omega’s IMPACT Worlds Championship. I mean, that’s unless Kenny Omega doesn’t make it here tonight before IMPACT on AXS ends, in which case, that six way at Under Siege will be to crown a new IMPACT World Champion. But you know, Don Callis is working diligently away to get Kenny Omega here before the end of the night, so I’m sure that’s not gonna be a problem. But either way, the stakes at Under Siege could not be bigger. And, look, I love everybody’s moxy, lined up bright and early outside of my office door today. Everybody hear wanting to be the individual, to be person that brings the IMPACT Championship home.

And I want to give as many of you individuals that opportunity to do so. And that’s why, over the next weeks here on IMPACT on AXS, we’re gonna be doing six qualifying matches to determine who’s in that number one contenders match at Under Siege. And they often say, there’s no time like the present. So, Jake Something, get on up here. You know, Jake, I’ve known you for a long time. And you’ve always had the raw ability, and you always had the passion, but this last little while here in IMPACT Wrestling, you’ve been showing that to the entire world. So I know you’re ready and I know you’re ready to go. So, let’s kick this off right here with our first qualifying match, Jake Something vs. Chris Bey.
