It’s a strange new world in the Impact Wrestling universe. As the wrestling promotion gets ready for Hard to Kill, its first pay-per-view of 2021, this Saturday AEW World Champion Kenny Omega has aligned himself with Impact EVP Don Callis and has invaded the promotion.
On top of that, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, the Impact Tag Team Champions and Omega’s former Bullet Club stablemates in Japan have seemingly aligned themselves with the All Elite Wrestling champion and have made appearances on AEW Dynamite in recent weeks.
While Impact’s titles and talent will be on full display at this year’s Hard to Kill, Omega will compete in an Impact ring for the first time in what could shift the landscape of professional wrestling.

IMPACT WRESTLING HARD TO KILL 2021 MATCH LISTING
There are nine confirmed matches between the pre-show and main card with three title bouts in store, and at least one new champion being crowned.
Impact revived the Knockouts Tag Team Championship titles and after a huge tournament, Hard to Kill will see the finals between Tasha Steelz and Kiera Hogan, and Havok and Nevaeh to determine the new champion.
Former X Division Champion Chris Bey believes his loss to Manik should be overturned because he believes the masked wrestler is actually TJP in disguise. Bey has brought in Rohit Raju to try and unmask Manic and now we have a triple threat bout to determine the X Division Champion this Saturday.
Knockouts champion Deonna Purrazzo has had a chokehold on the top women’s title for months, but Taya Valkyrie, a Knockouts Legend, will look to regain the title that she held for so much of 2020.
Omega will team up with Gallows and Anderson to take on the Impact Champion Rich Swann and the Motor City Machine Guns, the duo who the Good Brothers defeated for the Impact Tag Team Championships.
