Impact Wrestling Preview (9/15) – XXXL (Acey Romero and Larry D) vs. The Deaners (Cousin Jake and Cody Deaner)
It’s going to be fun seeing this quartet back at it on Impact Wresting. It’s been a few weeks since they last faced off in the Impact Zone, as they were part of the Wrestle House group.
While there, they were kinda, sorta forced into a truce by Susie until the second last segment when tempers finally got the better of them.
Not that we’re complaining, since the Deaners (Cody and Cousin Jake) tend to have fun matches with XXXL (Larry D and Acey Romero).
Both teams are even in many ways, and when the Deaners won on Impact Wrestling in July the Deaners barely scraped out the win.
They both are loaded with power and grit, but XXXL’s size is often what shifts matches in their favor.
It’s a difficult matchup for the Deaners, but they’re scrapy and one of the toughest teams out there, so maybe that would be enough?
Their confrontations at Wrestle House were mostly ended to placate Susie, but eventually they exploded into a hilarious confrontation.
And as luck would have it, Susie was the one to end that, too. She even made Tommy Dreamer grimace at what she did.
So, who’s going to win?
This is one of those feuds where flipping a coin would go a long way to figuring things out, but we don’t have a coin, so here we go.
Keeping it going
We have to admit that we’d normally pick the Deaners for this as they’re one of our favorites and they won the last time, but with so many losing streaks going on, we think XXXL will win this.
It’d be nice to see a team alternate wins and keep a feud going, and besides, XXXL is due and deserve a win.
We got to see Acey Romero and Larry D display parts of themselves we haven’t before at Wrestle House, and their chemistry with Cody and Cousin Jake is awesome.
The four of them have been great with the serious and comedic aspects of their rivalry, and we’re interested to see what they’re going to do next.
In short, there’s so much potential here that alternating wins for a while will bring out some special moments. Maybe Larry will turn into Lawrence and use his Ring Rust cologne as a secret weapon?
What do you think of this rivalry, and who do you think will win? Let us know in the comments.
