Omega is now slated to work the upcoming Under Siege special event from Impact Wrestling that takes place on Saturday, May 15. As of this writing, there’s no word who he’ll defend the title against whether that’s Swann, Moose, Eddie Edwards, or someone else, but it will air on Impact Plus.

“Yeah, that will be I believe his first title defense. I believe...he’s going to be at the next television taping and he’s definitely going to defend the title at Under Siege, that’s the first title defense, May 15th. I believe he’s doing a tag team match on television when they do the tapings as well. I’m not sure who he’ll be defending against. I have a feeling that on Thursday’s show you will probably have an idea who it would be. It might be Rich, you know, the big defense is going to be on the July show [Slammiversary].”
