Kenny Omega has proven to be a very good draw for ROH so it stands to reason that he can do the same for Impact. Kenny around would probably eliminate the need to PAY people to attend their shows. They need star power and the biggest star not signed to WWE these days is Kenny Omega.
Agree but at the same time, they have Alberto El patron who was also a very big draw on the indy scene before going back to WWE and he didn't move the needle, Same Goes for Johnny Impact. The ROH fans won't go and what Impact because Omega is on that show mostly because they knows that the IMPACT product is inferior to the ROH product and he won't be able to have the type of matches that he can have outside of IMPACT.
The fact is, you can bring pretty much the biggest star on the indy's into IMPACT wrestling and it won't move the needle because the brand as a whole is dead. They are pretty much were guys from other promotion come to wrestles and get exposure, their no rime or reason for the brand to exist anymore and even the hardcore of hardcore fans of Impact knows it since from some of the ratings that came out for the last months or so, they lost at less half their audience if not more every week, so right now, they could announce that CM Punk is coming to IMPACT wrestling and it would change a think. So if i was Omega, i would stay as far away as possible from IMPACT because at the end it would just hurt is career as a draw on the indy's.
