Impact Wrestling Results (March 22nd, 2018): Former TNA World Champion gets fired
Two huge title matches, a big departure and a barbaric Monster's Ball match!
This week's Impact Wrestling episode was stacked as they come. The yearly Feast or Fired ritual, a Knockouts title match and a Monster's Ball were the selling points heading into the show.
In case you missed it, EC3, Eli Drake, Petey Williams and Moose won their respective briefcases in the Feast or Fired match last week. The cases were opened in the main event of this week's show and it led to the departure of a former TNA World Champion.
That's not all as two titles were defended on a night of solid in-ring action. Here's what went down at the Impact Zone this week:
#1 Alberto El Patron and Austin Aries set up a World title match
Alberto El Patron kicked off the show with a promo on Impact World Champion Austin Aries. El Patron was grateful that we would finally face the 'real champion' but claimed that Aries was not the 'Greatest Man That Ever Lived'.
Aries interrupted the proceedings just when Patron had wrapped up and took the mic to cut an engaging promo. Despite coming from two different worlds, Aries said that he shares a similar love for pro wrestling just like El Patron.
Aries said that he wanted to end all the nonsense and will not be known as a paper champion once he shuts El Patron up at Redemption.
Patron and Aries trade barbs before Patron asked for Aries' music to be played so that he can walk back to the locker room. Aries reciprocated by asking for El Patron's theme to play, stating that it could be the last time he hears it last.
