Austin Aries Wins Impact World Title Back From Pentagon Jr.

Austin Aries Wins Impact World Title

It was a real surprise when Pentagon Jr. won the Impact World Championship from Austin Aries during the Triple Threat main event of their Redemption PPV.

However this change didn’t last for very long and after almost a month-long reign of the Lucha Underground Champion, A-Double won the World Title back during the ‘Under Pressure’ special of Impact.

Austin won the title in a controversial match which was restarted not once but 3 times. The bout was first stopped when Aries refused to release a submission hold and both men were counted out.

Both stars then agreed to restart the bout but they were counted out again after Pentagon hit a Package Piledriver on Austin on the ring apron:

After this, the Mexican Star cut a promo demanding to restart the bout once again, though it didn’t go very well for him. As soon as the referee turned around to restart the bout, the former WWE Star low-blowed his opponent and then pinned him after hitting a brainbuster:

It’s worth mentioning that this wasn’t the only title change during the night as Su Yung defeated Allie during the show and was crowned the new Knockouts Champion.

This is Austin Aries’ third reign with the Impact World Championship and now it’d be interesting to see if he continues his feud with Pentagon Jr. or moves on to a rivalry with an Impact Wrestling star instead.
