Tonight on IMPACT on Pop, will we see the beginning of a new reign for a World Champion? Two goliaths will go head-to-head inside the six-sided ring, as current Champion Lashley and challenger Josh Barnett vie for the coveted World Title.
When Josh Barnett made his IMPACT debut on February 16, it caused a shake-up on the roster. No longer would it be as easy for Lashley to maintain the Title, as he so confidently previously stated. Barnett is a fierce competitor who has won multiple MMA matches, including a UFC Heavyweight Championship, but Lashley, not one to back down from a challenge, accepted Barnett’s request to contest for the World Title.
The Main Event for the World Title is set for tonight, but Barnett got comfortable inside the ring last week with a crushing win against Bad Bones via tap out.
Barnett’s wrestling skills were impressive and Lashley is well aware of the challenge ahead. However, Lashley’s brawn and experience will be incredibly hard to defeat, and his confidence is unparalleled. After all, he is the World Champion for a reason. The stakes are high with pride and the World Championship on the line. The Main Event tonight is a can’t miss.
