Matt Hardy defeated Ethan Carter III for the TNA Championship at Friday night's Impact Wrestling tapings in Bethlehem, PA. This match took place after the live One Night Only pay-per-view. The match will air later this month on Pop TV. I believe it will air on the 1/26 edition of Impact.
I'm told that they did an angle with Hardy turning heel and aligning with Tyrus. EC3 is now a babyface. This would be EC3's official loss with the company since he was not the person pinned when he lost the title back in October at Bound For Glory. EC3 had just won the title at the "live" Impact Wrestling show on Tuesday night.
This would be Matt Hardy's second TNA title reign.
