Ace Austin is the winner of the 2021 IMPACT Wrestling Super X-Cup Tournament.
The road to the finals saw Austin defeat both Suicide and Cousin Jake. His last challenger was Blake Christian, who eliminated both KC Navarro and Crazzy Steve. Before their match, Austin sent Madman Fulton to the back, wanting to win the match on his own merits. The two men put on a fast-paced, back-and-forth encounter, but Christian met his end when Austin landed his signature move, The Fold.
Former winners of the tournament include Chris Sabin, Samoa Joe, and Dezmond Xavier, who captured the trophy the last time it was presented in 2017.
Ace Austin has become one of the top stars in IMPACT Wrestling since making his debut for the promotion in March 2019. At only 23 years of age, Austin has already held in the X-Division Championship and challenged for the IMPACT World Championship.
