You Win Some, and Lose Others: The Miracle Mike Bennett Will Face Lashley

“The Miracle” Mike Bennett may have walked away as the #1 contender for the World Championship last night, but he also walked away with one less man on his side. That man is his partner-in-crime, Moose.

The Open Battle Royal came down to three men left fighting for the contender position- Eddie Edwards, Moose, and “The Miracle”. Just as Moose was about to take down Eddie Edwards, “The Miracle” did something that was conniving.

“The Miracle” tried to justify his actions to Moose, but a raged Moose wouldn’t have it.

Now, “The Miracle” will face Lashley next week in a World Title Match. Will “The Miracle” be able to handle such an intimidating competitor without Moose by his side? More or less, will Moose and “The Miracle” ever be able to become friends again?

So many questions. You won’t want to miss next Thursday episode as controversy continues to arise.

Allie Becomes Knockouts Champion

When hard work and luck come together, it’s most always a great thing. During Last night’s episode of IMPACT on POP, Allie shocked the world and became The Knockout’s Champion for the very first time.

For Allie, this win was a dream come true and an honest moment of excitement. But when asked about what her “boss”, Maria Kanellis-Bennett will think about the victory, she had a change of heart.

How long will Allie hold the Knockouts Title? And who will she have to face next in order to stay Knockouts Champion?

Gail Kim Continuing Her Quest

Gail Kim is continuing her quest to become The Knockouts Champion for a 6th time. But as we’ve seen, her quest isn’t going to easy, as it seems she must compete against all of the Knockouts to fulfill her plan.

This Thursday on IMPACT WRESTLING, Gail checked on more Knockouts off of her list after defeating Marti Belle. But Maria still is doing all that she can to stop Gail’s quest once and for all.

So now Gail’s next contender is Jade? Maria has made it known that she wants to be the leader of the Knockouts and it seems like she’s slowly but surely making it that way.

What will happen when Gail Kim challenges Jade next week on IMPACT on POP?

TONIGHT on IMPACT

Josh Mathews and McKenzie Mitchell take you through what to look for TONIGHT ON IMPACT. It is Title vs Title as James Storm faces Lashley. Will Storm walk away with the TNA World Title or will Lashley add to his gold collection with the King Of The Mountain title?

Also, there’s a ton of buzz in the wrestling world and tonight you will see why he’s doing things his way.

It all goes down tonight at 8/7c on a LIVE edition of IMPACT WRESTLING on Pop.

History In The Making: Titles VS Title

This THURSDAY night will go down as history in the making as Lashley takes on James Storm in a Titles Vs Titles match. A fight for all of the gold, and a battle that one doesn’t see happen every day. Both men are confident that they will indeed be the one to come out victorious, but who will put their money where their mouth is?

Lashley obviously has made it his goal to hold all of the Titles and he will let no man stand in his way. With Lashley, already being the current World Heavyweight Champion and X Division Champion, his quest to gain the King of the Mountain Title is nothing that should be taken lightly. If Lashley can successfully carry out his plan, he is just one step closer to becoming one of very few men to go down in TNA History whom held all of the Titles all at once.

But James Storm, a former World Heavyweight Champion, is determined to conquer the match and get back the World Heavyweight Title for himself.
