It was announced by Jim Cornette that this week on IMPACT EC3 will defend his IMPACT Grand Championship against El Hijo Del Fantasma in what should be a blockbuster match. Fantasma is part of AAA in Mexico and has a massive following. The Son of The Ghost is going to give EC3 everything he can handle on Thursday night.
Remember, most wrestlers are not used to competing in matches under the IMPACT Grand Championship rules. The match has three 3 minute rounds and the judges will be looking at controlling the action, physicality and aggressiveness. Former IMPACT Grand Champion Moose became very equipped at competing in this style of match. EC3 has quickly adapted. What will happen Thursday night?
An interesting note, one of the judges for this match will be representing AAA and he is the legendary Hector Guerrero. Will that add pressure or a sense of relief for Fantasma? Also, will EC3 feel the pressure knowing that one of the judges comes from the same company and country as Fantasma? Is there built in bias for Fantasma? Will the judges have a say in the decision? Find out all this and more on Thursday night.
