Impact Wrestling has a new World Champion and Knockouts Champion.
This week's Impact Wrestling was called Under Pressure and featured a few matches which Impact Wrestling was building to over the last few weeks of television. In a World Championship match, Austin Aries was successful in winning the title back from Pentagon Jr who had won the belt at Redemption.
The following is an excerpt from the play-by-play of the match provided by Ryan Cook.
They counter each other until Pentagon hits a Michinoku driver for a very close near fall, then they go out onto the apron where Austin hits a neckbreaker before locking in the Last Chancery on the floor.
They get back into the ring before Pentagon gets a near fall off of a roll up only for Austin to hit a DVD onto the apron before Pentagon hits a package piledriver onto the apron. Pentagon then rolls Austin back into the ring and they exchange words on the mic before Austin hits a brainbuster for the pin and the win.
Winner: Austin Aries defeats Pentagon Jr. via pinfall with a brainbuster to become the new IMPACT World champion.
Su Yung and Allie faced off in a Last Rites match which works like a normal casket match but had some extra pageantry. Su Yung won the Knockouts Championship from Allie in the match which was Su Yung's first championship with the company.
Below is another excerpt from the Fightful Wrestling live coverage.
Su is in control as we come back from commercial, dropping Allie with several strikes before getting a chair and bringing it into the ring. Allie drops Su with a series of clotheslines before hitting a side Russian leg sweep before she can use the chair, then Allie tosses her the chair and hits a code breaker onto the chair. Allie rolls Su into the casket, but she stands up in it before Su sends Allie back into the ring with a thrust to the throat. Allie then superkicks Su into the casket, but her leg is sticking out of the side before she stands up and chokes Allie unconscious with a mandible claw before closing the lid for the win.
Winner: Su Yung defeats Allie and becomes the new Knockouts champion when she puts Allie in the casket and closes the lid.
