SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Impact Wrestler of the Week: Moose
After being out of the ring for a while, Moose continued to re-build himself as a major player in Impact with his victory over James Storm in the main event of last week’s Impact TV show. The victory let him advance to the six-way number one contender’s match at Under Siege, where he will probably be the favorite to win and meet Kenny Omega in a title match at the next PPV. After their exchanges during the six-man tag match at the Hard to Kill PPV, it’s a match that many fans would love to see.
Match of the Week: Trey Miguel vs. Rohit Raju
The winner of this match advanced to the six-way number one contender’s match at Under Siege later this month. After about 13 minutes of really good action, Trey took the victory with his hourglass submission. These two worked really well together. I find that Rohit is so much more effective when he is in serious mode, such as this match. Trey continues to impress as Impact builds him for a more prominent role in the company.
