Impact Wrestler of the Week: W. Morrissey
Morrissey (formerly Big Cass in WWE) has been an impressive heel presence since making his debut in Impact recently. With wins this week over Willie Mack in the main event of the Impact TV show and a win over former Impact World Champion Rich Swann at Against All Odds, Morrissey seems to be on an upward trajectory in Impact.
Match of the Week: Kenny Omega vs. Moose
This match lived up to my lofty expectations. The action-packed main event of the Against All Odds show took place at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville (the recent home of all AEW events) with Tony Schiavone, Don Callis, and Scott D’Amore on commentary. Although the end result was never really in doubt, Omega and Moose still had an excellent match, with Omega winning after the Young Bucks got involved. The post-match angle involved Sami Callihan showing up and being “fired” by Don Callis, which should be followed up on upcoming episodes of Impact TV.
