The history of masked personality, Suicide, is one that dates back to the early days of IMPACT Wrestling. Suicide originally made his debut as a fictional character in September 2008 on TNA, Impact! video game. In the game, Suicide was jumped by LAX and then forced to give the World Title to Jeff Jarrett, who had originally caused his harm. It was shortly after that he made his first introduction as a wrestler during Final Resolution 2008 Pay-Per View. Just three days later, he made his debut on IMPACT on December 11, 2008.
Throughout the years, we’ve seen Suicide come and go, but his good spirit and eagerness to be X Division Champion always remained consistent no matter how much time had passed. Not only is Suicide a 2-time X Division Champion, we’ve also seen him stand out in several Ultimate X and multi-man matches.
Last Thursday night, Suicide made his return to IMPACT Wrestling competing in a 4-Way X Division Title Match. This week on IMPACT, we will see him compete yet again!
Knowing his sportsmanlike character and his history with LAX in the past, it is ironic that both made a return on the same night. But where has he been for the past 8 months? Furthermore, aside from a guest appearance at the July 2016 X-travaganza Pay-Per-View, we have not seen Suicide in the six-sided ring since 2013. A lot has changed at IMPACT Wrestling since 2013. One can only wonder what changes Suicide has made in nearly 4 years! We can assume that Suicide has been focusing on what he does best, which is helping others. Suicide could have also been in the city capitalizing on his high-flying skills that can resonate in the IMPACT Zone and X Division. Whatever it might be, it is natural to wonder if Suicide has plans to get revenge on those that he has had a problem with in the past, or if maybe his plans are bigger than revenge. Maybe mystifying character, Suicide is here to Make IMPACT Great! Only time will tell.
Watch Suicide this Thursday night at 8/7c on IMPACT on POP to find out more!
