Impact Wrestling News: Brand new Impact World, Knockouts X-Division and Tag-Team titles unveiled
What's the story?
Impact Wrestling have unveiled their new branded World, X-Division and Tag-Team Title belts ahead of their Redemption pay-per-view. They teased the new title belts on Twitter with the following tweet.
In case you didn't know...
Impact looks to be a company renewed by its new ownership and Don Callis and Scott D'more running things.
A whole bunch of stars have left such as James Storm, Alberto El Patron (who was fired) and EC3. But new talent has been brought in to replace them with the likes of Austin Aries, Brian Cage, and Su Yung all appearing.
It has moved from America to Canada and has slowly begun rebuilding bridges in the wrestling world, recently entering a partnership with Lucha Underground that led to a great joint show during WrestleMania weekend.
The heart of the matter
Another process of the rebuild for the company was new title belts, and they were unveiled tonight. The belts were revealed via Twitter one-by-one with the Tag-Team Titles being the first to be revealed and then the X-Division, Knockouts and World Championship following suit shortly afterwards.
All of the belts sport the Impact logo and a blue undertone throughout to give them uniformity, but each belt is definitely distinct and unique. I think they're a definite improvement on their predecessors
Impact Wrestling's Redemption pay-per-view is the first pay-per-view in their new era and sports the main event of Austin Aries vs Pentagon Jr vs Fenix for the Impact World Championship, Su Yung vs Allie for the Knockouts Championship and Eli Drake and Scott Steiner vs LAX for the Tag Titles.
As I mentioned briefly above I'm actually a big fan of these new title belts and I can't wait to see what they look like during the Redemption pay-per-view. I personally hope it goes well for Impact and they can continue their positive momentum.
