Impact Wrestler of the Week: Matt Cardona
This was a breakthrough week for Cardona. He main-evented last week’s TV show and scored a win (in a tag team match) over Impact World Champion Moose. The announcers did a good job of making Cardona’s pinfall victory seem like a big deal. Impact has taken advantage of Cardona’s momentum from his GCW appearances and added a fresh touch to their main event scene.
Impact Match of the Week: Jonah vs. Jai Vidal
This was a basic squash but it was effective in making Jonah seem like a major force right out of the gate. Jonah is being positioned against top Impact star Josh Alexander, so this match helped establish Jonah as a credible opponent. Vidal has done well in his Impact appearance thus far and hopefully will be given an opportunity to show even more.
