The status of Impact Wrestling’s World Championship will be addressed next week.
Impact Wrestling has revealed that there will be an announcement regarding the future of their World title on this coming Tuesday’s episode of Impact. Tessa Blanchard holds the Impact World Championship but hasn’t appeared at Impact’s two recent sets of television tapings due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Blanchard was supposed to defend her title against Michael Elgin and Eddie Edwards in a triple threat match at Rebellion in April, but that match didn’t happen due to neither Blanchard nor Edwards being able to attend the tapings.
A number one contender’s tournament was held on Impact over the past few weeks. Ace Austin won the tournament and is next in line for a shot at Blanchard’s title.
Moose has been calling himself TNA World Heavyweight Champion since bringing the title belt back at night two of Rebellion. He interrupted a backstage interview with Austin on Impact this week, called the Impact World Championship a second-rate title, and said Austin should come after his TNA World title instead. Austin responded by saying that maybe he will.
Here’s the updated lineup for next week’s Impact:
An announcement regarding the future of the Impact World Championship
Jordynne Grace vs. Taya Valkyrie for the Knockouts Championship
Michael Elgin vs. Sami Callihan vs. Ken Shamrock
Tasha Steelz vs. Susie
Chris Bey & Johnny Swinger vs. Willie Mack & Cousin Jake
Deonna Purrazzo arrives
