Chris Bey was one of several wrestlers to pull double duty this past Saturday as NJPW, IMPACT, and AAA Lucha Libre all ran major shows at the same time.
Bey competed in the main event of IMPACT Final Resolution, challenging Rich Swann for the IMPACT World Title, and appeared in the NJPW Super J-Cup, losing in the semi-finals to ACH.
Speaking to Joey G at Wrestling Headlines, Bey discussed working two events on the same night.
"A night of history man. A night of history indeed. It’s a weird world we live in. It's a great time in professional wrestling where people are able to show up on multiple platforms in one night. It creates more buzz…it gets the fans more interested and it makes the realm of possibilities just endless. So for me it was great to represent IMPACT Wrestling in the Super J-Cup because not only does the tournament have so much history behind it but also I feel like I’m that guy whose gonna be able to now crack the door open a little bit more for anyone else who wants to work between these two companies. If anybody else is going to be heading over there or coming through I feel like I helped open that door for that relationship currently. And then with the Final Resolution match…what more really can I say about it. For me personally, it was my best match that I’ve had in my career. I was taken to the limits and I didn’t get the job done but I got plenty of other jobs done as far as inspiring people and motivating people and letting everybody know that if you work as hard as you possibly can and you dream as big as you can dream…anything is possible. I think that showed in my performance and that showed in the story that we told," he said.
IMPACT Final Resolution was taped prior to Saturday while NJPW Super J-Cup was live.
Kenny Omega (AAA and IMPACT) and Lio Rush (NJPW and AAA) also appeared on both telecasts this past Saturday.
