A new TNA Champion was crowned at Friday night’s Impact Wrestling tapings from Bethlehem, PA in a match that featured an unexpected double turn.
Matt Hardy defeated Ethan Carter III to become the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion, turning heel and aligning himself with Tyrus. EC3 turned babyface after suffering the first clean loss of his TNA career.
The Hardy-EC3 match featuring the double turn angle and title change, which TNA has been hyping this week as a “Career vs. Title” match, is expected to air on the Tuesday, January 26th episode of Impact Wrestling on POP TV.
