As their respective teams continue to fight their way through to January’s Hard To Kill, Impact World Champion Rich Swann will face Karl Anderson, one half of the Impact Tag Team Champions, in a non-title match next Tuesday.
On Tuesday’s Impact, Swann (pictured) and the Motor City Machine Guns went looking for Anderson, Luke Gallows and AEW World Champion Kenny Omega on their bus but the former Bullet Club members got the jump on them with another beatdown.
The two teams will headline Impact’s January 16th pay-per-view. Omega has been a presence on the show since winning the AEW title at December’s Winter Is Coming as part of a bigger plan with Impact VP Don Callis.
Swann hasn’t lost an Impact singles match dating back to December 2019. Since returning from injury and defeating Eric Young for the title at October’s Bound For Glory, he is 4-0 with four successful title defenses. Anderson is 3-0 in Impact singles matches.
It’s expected more matches will be announced following Saturday’s Genesis event on Impact Plus.
