Last night on IMPACT Presented by GFW we witnessed an incredible Global Championship Match between Champion Eli Drake and Challenger Matt Sydal. It was a match that many people were split on their predictions. Eli Drake a new and hungry champion looking to prove his worth. Matt Sydal a seasoned veteran of the mat wars looking to prove he is more than an X-Division Star.
It could have gone down either way, but Eli Drake is friends with Chris Adonis and that friendship paid dividends last night. Adonis got involved and when the dust settled, Eli Drake was still champion. However, as they say, there is no rest for the wicked.
Earlier in the night we found out from Jim Cornette, that next week on IMPACT it will be Johnny IMPACT vs. Low-Ki in a Number 1 Contenders Match with the winner facing Eli Drake at Victory Road in 3 weeks. What a match that will be, for the first time ever, Matt Sydal vs. Low-Ki with the winner moving on to Victory Road!
For now, Eli Drake’s kingdom is in tact, but the natives are restless and looking to shake things up!
