Impact Wrestler of the Week: Ace Austin
Ace has spent a lot of the year on the back burner, but recently he has been rotated back into the main event mix. Ace is now the number one contender to Christian Cage’s Impact World Title by virtue of his win in a four-way match at Emergence. He main-evented last week’s TV show and had an entertaining match with Tommy Dreamer.
Match of the Week: Josh Alexander vs. Jake Crist
Alexander continued his awesome X Division title run last week by issuing an open challenge, which was answered by former champ Jake Crist. The match only lasted six minutes but it was action packed. Alexander took the victory after his double underhook piledriver to retain the title. Not sure if Jake is sticking around or if this was just a one-off appearance, but it was a pleasant surprise to see him return.
