Impact Wrestler of the Week: Eddie Edwards
Eddie faced off against Moose in last week’s TV main event. A mainstay of Impact, Eddie consistently has good matches, but he has been the biggest beneficiary of live crowds returning to Impact TV tapings. The fans are really into his matches, including singing along to his entrance theme, which has seemed to elevate his star power. It’s been a highlight of the recent Impact shows.
Match of the Week: Chris Bey vs. David Finlay
Bey and Finlay had a rematch from their contest a couple of weeks ago and this didn’t disappoint. The excellent match lasted about nine minutes, taken down just a notch because of the distraction finish. Finlay won the match with a roll up after Bey was distracted by Juice Robinson. After the match, Hikuleo made a surprise appearance and took out Finjuice.
