Impact Wrestling Preview is all set to close out 2020 with Impact Wrestling’s Best od 2020 Part 2 tonight on axis tv and twitch.com.
It’s going to be a fun night where we’ll continue to see some of the highlights from 2020 as winners for the Match of the Year and Moment of the Year are announced.
To be fair, the Match of the Year is going to be a tough call, but we’re going with Rich Swann defeating Eric Young for the Impact World Championship.
It marked the return and rise of Swann following his injury and the storyline dominated the summer, so it’s only fitting.
There was just something magical about watching an old school style of feud again.
Moment of the Year
There are two that really stick out to us as moments when the balance of power seemed to shift in professional wrestling.
The first is Slammiversary. This was the biggest moment of the year as wrestlers returned after being gone for years and made an immediate impact (pun intended) on the company and fans.
It was great for us to see to many like the Good Brothers, Motor City Machine Guns, EC3, Eric Young, and Brian Myers return even if it was for a brief time.
This shifted thing in Impact’s favor for many and really improved their product by enhancing the talent already on the roster. It was a shot in the arm and it’s been a great ride.
But as much as we love this moment, there’s another that Impact Wrestling Preview thinks will win and should win.
Impact Wrestling and AEW crossover
When Don Callis appeared on AEW, many of us assumed it was a typical crossover we’ve become accustomed to over the last few months.
In fact, we said multiple times it seemed like the promotions not tied to the WWE were forming a sort of territory system that the WWE destroyed and replaced.
Companies like Impact, OVW, AEW, NWA, and NJPW allowed their talent to go back and forth to give them more exposure.
But Callis helping Kenny Omega defeat Jon Moxley and then the two of them appearing on Impact changed that.
We’re entering into a larger world where we have several options more readily available that we may not have known about.
Don Callis talks about changing the paradigm and he’s right. That’s exactly what happened and we think this will be the Moment of the Year.
