• Former WWE Star Done With Impact Wrestling After Bound For Glory 2018 Incident
In the main event of last night’s Impact Wrestling Bound For Glory 2018 PPV, Johnny Impact (f.k.a John Morrison in WWE) defeated former WWE 205 Live wrestler Austin Aries to win the Impact World Championship.
Johnny hit the Starship Pain on Aries to get the win.
Aries ‘no sold’ the finish as he got up just a few seconds after the pinfall like nothing happened, ran his mouth and flipped off Impact Wrestling’s co-executive vice president Don Callis on commentary, flipped off the crowd and stormed to the back.
Aries got up immediately and started cursing out Don Callis before walking to the back while flipping Callis off. Johnny clearly mouthed “Are you KIDDING me?” as he watched it play out. Announcers made zero mention of it.
