#1 Contenders Tournament Scheduled
Impact Wrestling announced a tournament to determine a new #1 contender to Tessa Blanchard’s Impact World Championship this week.

- Madman Fulton vs Hernandez
- Winner of Match 1 vs Winner of Match 2
- Winner of Match 3 vs Winner of Match 4
7Willie Mack Retains X-Division Title
Chris Bey won a fatal 4-way match at Rebellion to earn a title shot against new champion Willie Mack. Ace Austin, however, made it be known that he wanted his contractually stipulated rematch. As a result, a 3-way match for the X-Division title headlined this week’s show.
Mack would pick up his first title defence by pinning Austin after a 6-Star Frog Splash.
After losing the X-Division title and then his contractually-obligated rematch, Ace Austin has suggested it’s time for him to move on to other things.
