(apologies for the tardiness, I was overthinking the OP)

ROLL CALL OF CURRENT CHAMPIONS

Impact World Champion: Josh Alexander Moose
Life comes at you fast. Minutes after winning the title from Christian Cage, "the Walking Weapon" was ambushed by Moose, who proceeded to Call His Shot that he earned earlier in the night and claim his first championship in the promotion since 2017.

Impact World Tag Team Champions: The Good Brothers
The only title-holders to enter and leave Bound for Glory as champions, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows managed to keep at least one set of tag belts in the hands of the Super Elite.

Impact X Division Champion: Trey Miguel
A first-time champion in IW, Miguel managed to hold his own in a match involving El Phantasmo, which is pretty impressive.

Impact Knockouts Champion: Mickie James
After several months of feuding with Deonna Purrazzo, James regains the gold she last held over eight years ago.

Impact Knockouts Tag Team Champions: The IInspiration
Hey Gia! :haw: Jessica McKay and Cassie Lee debut in IW by beating Decay and winning the tag titles. Yes, they do the pose.

Impact Digital Media Champion: Jordynne Grace
This belt is mainly going to be defended on digital media, I would presume with a name like that. Grace is now a Triple Crown Champion (I guess).

NEXT PAY-PER-VIEW EVENT: HARD TO KILL
Live from Dallas, Texas on January 8th

They had a standoff recently where Christopher Daniels challenged Christian and said the reason he was in Impact was to get the belt, so I wonder if he goes after Moose now or if we'll see Christian vs Daniels anyway for a contender spot.

Happy for Trey Miguel. As much as I liked Alexander's X-Division run, Miguel's more the type of wrestler I associate with the style.

I'd imagine that Daniels shows up at Turning Point - he was on the Jericho cruise this past weekend, so he couldn't show up for Bound for Glory or the post-BFG tapings.

Yeah, I hope that he comes back for the next set of tapings. Daniels still rules.

I thought that Impact tieing him into their current main event angles was rather cool - the multiman lets them built the Suzuki / Alexander match up a bit more (and stretch Suzuki's 2 days of taping work into 4 weeks of TV).

It's a bit murky at the moment. There are rumors that the forbidden door is closed, but no one from either promotion has said anything. Personally, I don't know why AEW would shut itself off from another promotion that also has a working relationship with New Japan. In addition, Impact Wrestling is beneficial as a 'loop' for guys like Daniels and Private Party who weren't doing anything in AEW.

No Way Jose's Impact career

quote:

On July 17, 2021, at Slammiversary, he made his debut for Impact Wrestling under the ring name No Way, being revealed as Fallah Bahh's mystery partner in the four-way tag team match for the Impact World Tag Team Championship, however, the match would ultimately be won by The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson).[26] Over the next several months, No Way would continue teaming with Bahh. He left Impact in November 2021.

He won exactly as many matches as he logically could win, which was one (a tag match against the Learning Tree, even bigger jobbers).
