Impact Wrestling Redemption lineup: Match between Lucha Underground regulars announced

By Jason Powell, Prowrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

The following matches are advertised for the Impact Wrestling Redemption pay-per-view, which will be held on Sunday in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios.

-Austin Aries vs. Fenix vs. Pentagon Jr. for the Impact Wrestling Championship.

-Matt Sydal vs. Petey Williams for the X Division Championship.

-Allie vs. Su Yung for the Knockouts Championship.

-LAX vs. Eli Drake and Scott Steiner for the Impact Wrestling Tag Titles.

-Moose, Eddie Edwards, and Tommy Dreamer vs. Sami Callihan, Jake Crist, and Dave Crist in a House of Hardcore match.

-Taiji Ishimori vs. Dezmond Xavier vs. El Hijo Del Fantasma vs. Brian Cage vs. DJZ vs. Trevor Lee in a six-way match.

-Drago vs. Aerostar.

Powell’s POV: Impact added the Drago vs. Aerostar match on Monday. It’s a nice addition to a quality lineup. It’s good to see Impact and LU working together as it’s good for both companies and also good for the talent in that they get more bookings. The three-way main event replaces the previously advertised Aries vs. Alberto El Patron match, which was dropped when El Patron no-showed the Impact Wrestling vs. Lucha Underground event during WrestleMania weekend. The Redemption event is available on Sunday night via pay-per-view television and FITE TV for $39.99. Join me for live coverage as the show airs.

  1. 40.00 might seem a lot of money for this PPV, especially given the current state of paid TV. However, it’s an investment in companies trying to grow, as well as seeing some of the best younger talent available.

    Also, it’s highly unlikely a child will challenge for the tag team championship, so there’s that.

    • You’re right about the child thing, but at least it was a child of one of the workers and it was all good hearted…

      That said, Impact isn’t a pro wrestling charity. I’d see ROH as a better investment if you want to avoid sunk costs. Plus almost every other well known Wrestling promotion sells a superior product at a lesser cost where investing in their product seems more profitable with even better young talent.

      I want to see Impact Wrestling succeed, but they need to tear down some things and rebrand themselves in a positive way to bring people back. Acting swiftly on the El Patron thing and allowing Wrestlers to leave with their IPs is a step in the right direction where the Dixie regime would have dug a bigger grave for themselves…

      At least Impact is trying to salvage this PPV with all the Lucha Underground talent, but why not just watch LU where all of these Wrestlers have superior writing as opposed to wasting 40 dollars?
