In a huge AEW vs. IMPACT main event, a number one contenders match for the IMPACT World Tag Team Championships was made: Private Party vs. Chris Sabin and James Storm.
Matt Hardy made his IMPACT return after an absence of nearly four years. Hardy departed the promotion in 2017 along with his brother Jeff after their successful run as the Broken Hardys. The ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy character has continued to appear in different guises. AEW, WWE and ROH all saw ‘Broken’ or ‘Woken’ Matt appear in some way, though ‘Big Money Matt’ is the persona to return to IMPACT.
As AEW and IMPACT continue to share talent, it seems likely that fans will be treated to more crossover matchups.
