IMPACT Genesis Preview

IMPACT Wrestling presents “Genesis” tonight on IMPACT Plus and Fite TV. Tonights show features the first Super-X Cup tournament since 2017. The main event will be an “I Quit” match between Moose and Willie Mack. Something that should not be lost on anyone watching, is that last months Final Resolution had a main event of Chris Bey challenging Rich Swann for the Impact title, which was the first time two black wrestlers main evented a PPV for a major company since 2002. Well IMPACT is doing it again this month.

Another cool thing about this show, is that it features many new faces from the Indies. Blake Christian, Tre Lamar, and KC Navarro are all making their IMPACT PPV debuts in the tournament. While “Final Resolution” as a whole was very disappointing and up until the main event, “Genesis” has the opportunity to be an absolute sleeper, if IMPACT allows it. The talent in the tournament could have some match of the year candidates if the gaga is kept to a minimum, and that is my hope. With that being said, here are my predictions, including how I see the tournament playing out.

Super X Cup Round 1: A-Side

Ace Austin beats Suicide

Jake Deaner beats Daivari

Super X Cup Round 1: BSide

Tre Lamar beats Crazzy Steve

I Quit Match

Mike’s Take: Keeping my subscription to IMPACT plus really hinges on the quality of this show. A good 85% of the matches at Final Resolution featured interferences and distraction finishes. I’m hoping all that is kept to a minimum tonight. Relying on that too much is leading to a major downfall in RAW and Smackdown, and IMPACT should really try to be the opposite of them. Here’s to hoping for a fun show tonight.
