Tomorrow night on IMPACT we celebrate Thanksgiving like only IMPACT can, with the annual Turkey Suit Match. Well, it will be somewhat different as Global Champion, Eli Drake has turned this into the “Eli Drake Gravy Train Turkey Trot” with the outcome being someone will don the dreaded Turkey Suit. Eli knows the importance of branding and since his signature move is the Gravy Train, this all makes sense. Branding is important, just ask James Storm, who has been “The Cowboy” of IMPACT Wrestling for years. Storm has been half of tag teams that we will remember forever, teams like Beer Money and Storm has a theme song that once you hear it, it stays in your head for days.
Enter Texano from AAA who has said more than once, that he is the only true Cowboy in wrestling. Texano has worn a cowboy hat and used a bull whip to attack his opponents and Storm has noticed. So who is the true cowboy of IMPACT? And can there only be one? Wrestling is a small world and the answer to the second question is absolutely there can only be one! There were many “Nature Boys” in wrestling over the years, but honestly, there is only one Ric Flair and he is the man you think of when you hear “Nature Boy” and on Thursday nights, when you hear the name “Cowboy” you think of James Storm.
Will Texano change that next Thursday night? Will there be a new Cowboy in town? Find out on an all new IMPACT next Thursday night on an evening that will feel like an event at the OK Corral.
