Tonight on IMPACT on POP is going to be a show that will be talked about for days to come. Not only will it be LIVE from Universal Studios in Orlando, but the card is set for some incredible Championship matches.
Current Knockouts Champion, The Demon Assassin, Rosemary, will defend the Knockouts Title against one of the founding members of the Knockouts Division, ODB, who just recently came back to IMPACT Wrestling. ODB is fired up for the match tonight, and many fans are speculating that she will be the one that has the mental strength and skills inside the ring to take the Championship from Rosemary’s grip.
Also on the line is the X Division Championship, but if Suicide or Andrew Everett want to take the title from Trevor Lee, they are going to have to work for it. Lee is currently in his second reign as the X Division Champion, and he is one of the toughest Champions to ever hold the respected title. Will Everett and Suicide bring enough passion to the ring to shake up the rank of the X Division?
Although the Knockouts and X Division Championships up for grabs have the fans buzzing, the most excitement for tonight’s show is circling around the World Title Championship match. James Storm won the fan vote on impactwrestling.com to become the #1 Contender for the World Title. Storm has a storied history with IMAPCT Wrestling, and many fans want to see him regain the title tonight. However, if Storm intends to be the next World Heavyweight Championship, he must have one of the best matches of his life.
Lashley has been an unstoppable force inside the six-sided ring, and he will bring his desire, aptitude and mental strength to the ring tonight. In his fourth reign as the World Heavyweight Champion, he wants to continue to build on his legacy.
For what it’s worth, my bet is on Storm. He has the confidence of the fan vote on his side, and his years of experience inside the ring will be an asset. He wants to win this one for the fans, and that inspiration will be his driving force.
We don’t know what will happen tonight, but we do know that it is a LIVE show that can’t be missed. IMPACT Wrestling starts at 8/7c on Pop TV.
