Impact Wrestling/Lucha Underground News: Major main event announced for Lucha Underground vs Impact Wrestling at WrestleCon
An epic encounter is signed for this cross-promotional battle in New Orleans.
What's the story?
Impact Wrestling announced a huge main event on their website Wednesday afternoon for their event against Lucha Underground at WrestleCon during WrestleMania week. The Impact Global Heavyweight Champion Austin Aries will team up with Fenix to take on Alberto El Patron and Pentagon Jr.
In case you didn't know...
Fenix and Pentagon Jr. are actually brothers in real-life. Both Pentagon and Fenix made their professional wrestling debut in 2007. Pentagon (age 33) is the older brother by nearly six years over Fenix (age 27).
The heart of the matter
The tag match will have an interesting dynamic on a couple of levels. As previously mentioned, it will be brother v. brother, but it's far from the first time they have competed against each other.
Based on recent events on Impact Wrestling, Alberto El Patron is trying to position himself as the next contender to the Impact Global Heavyweight Championship against Austin Aries. It's a title that Alberto never lost, but was stripped of following a suspension in August.
Also scheduled to compete in the Impact Wrestling vs Lucha Underground card are:
- Impact World Tag Team Champions LAX v. Da Mack and Killshot
- DJZ, Andrew Everett, & Desmond Xavier v. Aerostar, King Cuerno, & Drago
- Eddie Edwards v. Jeremiah Crane (aka Sami Callihan) - I Quit Match
Impact Wrestling vs Lucha Underground will take place in just a little over two weeks on 6 April from The Sugar Mill in New Orleans, Louisiana. That will be on the Friday before WrestleMania.
This tag match is definitely worthy of the main event spot on any card. Seeing Pentagon tag with Alberto El Patron will be a treat for sure. Everyone knows El Patron, and Pentagon is probably the most popular luchador on Lucha Underground.
Not to be outdone on the other side, Fenix is a tremendous talent who I've enjoyed watching on Lucha Underground and the number of titles in Austin Aries' possession does all the talking for him there.
