In an exclusive interview with Riju Dasgupta of Sportskeeda Wrestling, Swann admitted that his title vs. title clash against Omega at Rebellion 2021 is possibly the biggest match of his career. He said that it's an opportunity of a lifetime to step into the ring with someone as revered as Omega.
Swann did point out that The Cleaner's antics in IMPACT Wrestling hasn't impressed him, but it still doesn't undermine the fact that he's one of the best in the world.
"I'd say so. I'd say that it definitely is the biggest match of my career just because not only it is huge for me, a great opportunity for me, to get in there with somebody so revered as Kenny Omega, who's put in the top echelon of this industry, to get in there and have the match. Even though his personality and his ego on IMPACT TV haven't been up to my liking, it still doesn't take away the fact that he's one of the best wrestlers in the world."
Rich Swann put over his upcoming match at Rebellion 2021 by terming it "unprecedented". He said that two world champions from two different companies wrestling at a pay-per-view is not something that happens every day.
"To have this opportunity at Rebellion is unprecedented, it never happens. Two world champions, stepping into one ring on a pay-per-view from two different companies. Just think about that".
