Gail Kim On Kenny Omega's IMPACT World Title Reign: "It's Only Been A Positive Outcome So Far"
Omega’s IMPACT reign has been divisive amongst fans
Kenny Omega’s reign as ‘The Belt Collector’ has seen him scoop the top prizes in AEW, AAA, and IMPACT Wrestling. Whilst Omega’s work has been top rate throughout this time, his run as IMPACT Champion has divided opinion, with some fans saying Omega is positively highlighting IMPACT, whilst others say his reign as champion is barely moving the needle.
Whilst appearing on Busted Open Radio, IMPACT’s Gail Kim has come out in support of Omega’s IMPACT Title reign, saying:
"I'm okay with Kenny being our champion right now. It's been beneficial. It's only been a positive outcome so far. The fans are loving it, and ultimately, that is who you want to please. I haven't seen anything negative. If anything, it's just growing and growing. Slammiversary was an indication of how much it's growing. People were so excited that there was representation from four companies all on one show. IMPACT is the essential part of all that. As long as, in the end, we're getting the benefit from it, I don't think the boys are upset about it in any way.
“If [IMPACT] does things right, and I do trust the creative and management process - they're done a really good job. Just a couple of years ago, people hated us. For years! It was very hard to get that 'stink' off. We're making strides now and getting viewers back and getting people talking about us. We're making those steps and it's been positive. As long as they intertwine those stories...I trust the creative team, they are great. Any person on our roster is used. That's what I love. if you have a contract, you're being used. That, in turn, creates a positive locker room and people aren't feeling competitive or backstabbing or [creating] drama. Everyone feels good because they are doing what they love. I trust the management and creative and we're making moves in the right direction.”
