SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Impact Wrestler of the Week: Steve Maclin
This week the spotlight goes to Steve Maclin, who made his debut on last week’s episode of the show. It was a basic squash match but Maclin showed good intensity and I’m looking forward to seeing more of what he has to offer.
Match of the Week: Josh Alexander vs. Madman Fulton
Alexander continues to be one of the highlights of Impact. This match went about 9:00 and Alexander got the clean pin over his larger opponent after a roaring elbow and piledriver. Fulton plays his role as the monster heel well and he keeps getting better.
