SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...

Impact Wrestler of the Week: Joe Doering

Doering has been featured mostly in tag team matches with his Violent By Design teammates during his run in Impact, but he was in singles action in last week’s TV main event against Doc Gallows. The highlight of this hard-hitting match was Doering driving Gallows through the entrance stage. It was a good “big man” match and I look forward to seeing Doering in future singles action outside of his tag team commitments.

Match of the Week: Josh Alexander vs. Jake Something

This X Division showdown was the highlight of the Emergence special. After almost 20 minutes of exciting action, the champion put Jake away with the piledriver for the win. Alexander continued his excellent title reign. Jake had a breakthrough performance that will hopefully lead to more airtime.
