We’re firmly on the road to Slammiversary, and Impact have pinned their mast to Aries vs Moose. Time will tell if it was the right call, but at this point it’s hard not to be a little bit disappointed.
After this week, it was clear that Eddie Edwards and Sami Callihan still have a score to settle. Be that at Slammiversary or further down the road, I don’t know. What I do know though, is that Eddie Edwards is unhinged, vengeful and angry, and that’s the sort of man I want as my world champion.
I came into this week’s Impact with as much anticipation as I have in a long time and they were found wanting. I’m still firmly all in on the new Callis administration, but they’ve got work to do. Thumbs firmly in the middle on Impact Wrestling’s Under Pressure.
Z and E’s victory might seem small in the grand scheme of things and it might amount to little more than footnote in Impact history. I don’t really care. However this story pans out, I know that it brought a smile to my face and brightened up my week. In my book that’s all wrestling should be about.
There’s a beautiful symmetry to the career of Bobby Lashley. WWE-Impact-MMA-Impact-WWE. Yet the man who returned to decimate Elias on the post-Wrestlemania RAW is far from the dull former amateur wrestler from Junction City that washed out of the E in 2008.
