Austin Aries on becoming Impact World Champion
Newly crowned Impact World Champion Austin Aries took to Twitter to address his return to the company that aired Thursday night on Pop TV.
Aries noted that he would now be referring to the title as the Impact World Championship, not the Impact World Heavyweight Championship.
As noted earlier, Impact Wrestling has appeared to drop all references to the title previously being known as the Impact Global Championship following the transition away from the attempt at the Global Force Wrestling branding that is now dead.
My first decree as @IMPACTWRESTLING Champion. This will now be called the IMPACT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP. No weight distinction. I’m not a heavyweight, but I am world class. And that is #TheTruth. https://t.co/89XFc2NJlk
