Impact Wrestling Coverage: Aries Still the Greatest

Three solid matches and plenty of building for Bound For Glory made this week’s Impact another enjoyable effort. Even the squash matches had some type of storyline effect and because of that, the WWE could learn a thing or two about not wasting viewers’ time.


The Cult of Lee: Trevor Lee and Caleb Konley vs. The Lucha Bros: Pentagon Jr. and Fenix: The Cult of Lee brought it. They almost won this match several times, but Fenix and Pentagon combined with the Spike Pentagon Driver for the win. After the match, oVe cut a promo challenging them once again.

Alisha vs. Katarina: After Joe Hendry and Grado distracted Katarina, Alisha won with the Rollup.

The Fraternity: Channing Decker and Trent Gibson vs. Impact Tag Team Champions: LAX: Santana and Ortiz w/Konnan: Gibson and Decker were solid but Ortiz and Santana won with the Street Sweeper. After the match, the OGz hit the ring and taunted LAX.

X-Division Champion: Brian Cage vs. Kongo Kong: Kong didn’t lay down and used his power, but Cage won with a massive F5.

Impact Champion Austin Aries w/Killer Kross and Moose vs. Fallah Bahh w/Kevin Matthews: This was probably Bahh’s best match in Impact. He fought, but Kross and Moose were too much. Aries used the Last Chancery for the tap-out win and then Moose, Kross and Aries destroyed KM.
