3 Impacts From Impact (Crossroads Edition)

Crossroads is in the books, and what an event it was for the Impact roster! Who had the most memorable moment? Here are my 3 Impacts From Impact:

Once upon a time, Matt Sydal was labeled as a “choke artist” by then-Grand Champion Ethan Carter III. Since then, Sydal has won not one, but two titles, as he captured the Grand Championship and exited Crossroads as the X Division Champion as well! Sydal challenged Ishimori to a match for that title in Canada, only for Ishimori to respond and make the match Title vs Title. The two champions battled valiantly and with plenty of heart, but in the end, it was Sydal who emerged victorious, and walked away with both titles. In just a brief period, Sydal went from being unable to win the big one, to winning two big ones!

There were three championship matches with only one title up for grabs each, and the only one that resulted in a new champion was the Knockouts Title clash between Allie and Laurel Van Ness. Laurel’s attempts to one-up Allie in the weeks leading to Crossroads all failed miserably, and in the title contest, she attempted to do the same thing she did in their last clash:  use the belt as a weapon. This time, Allie fought back and successfully defeated Laurel to capture her second Knockouts Championship, and as shown later in the program, she was congratulated by Hall of Famer Gail Kim, who served as a mentor for Allie as she rose above anyone who attempted to knock her down.

Lashley was set to team with foe turned ally Eddie Edwards against oVe, but Sami Callihan’s violent attack towards Eddie took him out of the equation. Lashley went at it alone against oVe, though his solo act was cut short when Brian Cage arrived and served as a makeshift tag team partner, leading to victory over the Crists. However, Cage turned down Lashley’s show of respect afterwards, and honestly, I wouldn’t be shocked if these two behemoths ended up facing each other some time down the line!

Those are my 3 Impacts From Impact! Until next time!
