Impact Wrestling World Champion Austin Aries defeated Matt Sydal in a title vs. title match to capture the Impact Grand Championship. Yes, it looked like Sydal gifted the title to Josh Mathews at Saturday’s tapings but that was not allowed so Sydal remained as champion until he lost it to Aries at Sunday night’s tapings.
I believe this will be the end of the Impact Grand Championship because there had been talk of getting rid of that title. Don Callis has said that he feels that there are too many titles and he wasn’t a fan of the Grand Championship or the round system.
Also, at the same tapings, there was another MAJOR name that said goodbye and he is also believed to be headed to WWE. Click here if you want to read that spoiler.
