IMPACT Wrestling Results (January 14th, 2020): Fallout from Hard to Kill, Fatal-4-Way for the X-Division Championship
- That's two back-to-back title defenses for Ace Austin and an exclusive interview with Tessa Blanchard!
Ace Austin was seen backstage talking to someone on the phone about his victory over Trey at Hard to Kill. Austin has been on a roll since debuting in 2019, and after capturing the X-Division Championship was on a whole different level. In regard to the upcoming four-way match with Fallah Bahh, Eddie Edwards and Moose? Well, Aces Up.
We saw post-match footage from Hard to Kill after the IMPACT Tag Team Title match. Willie Mack was down on himself for failing to pick up the titles by himself, believing that he let Rich Swann down. Swann followed him and said that his performance that night should prove just how good he really is. When he's healed, Swann said he and Mack are definitely taking the tag team titles. The encouraging words from his friend really calmed Mack down, and the two hugged as we cut to the next segment.
Eddie Edwards, Call Your Shot Trophy in hand, talked about his incredible war with Michael Elgin at Hard to Kill. With that, Edwards has an official shot at any championship of his choosing any time he wants to cash in. But that's for later. Tonight, he'll knock off Fallah Bahh, Moose, and Ace Austin and continue to build a winning streak.
Michael Elgin responded by talking about his time in Japan working with Pro Wrestling NOAH. A place Eddie Edwards used to call home, Elgin said that he fans used to talk about Edwards, but now they're too focused on the Unbreakable One.
Rob Van Dam was seen in a hotel room surrounded in rose petals. The Whole F'n Show bragged about breaking down the Machine before Katie Forbes came into frame. Van Dam said it's unfair for anyone to hate him for having such a great life. He's just killing it in the ring, in real life, and financially. And we all live through RVD vicariously, because all of wrestling is essentially a tribute to him. Sadly, we saw way too much of RVD, his girlfriend, and his girlfriend's girlfriend.Published 15 Jan 2020, 09:19 IST
