The Major Players have officially reunited in Impact Wrestling, and they are going for the Impact World Tag Team Titles.
This week’s Impact saw Matt Cardona and Impact Digital Media Champion Brian Myers get into a backstage altercation with The Motor City Machine Guns. Cardona later defeated Alex Shelley, and it was announced that The Major Players will challenge Impact World Tag Team Champions Heath and Rhino at Over Drive.
This will be the first title defense for Heath and Rhino, who won the straps from The Kingdom earlier this month. The Kingdom were officially fired from the storylines on Impact this week after recently finishing up with the company. We noted before how they have signed multi-year contracts with AEW.
Cardona and Myers will be looking for their third major title reign together as they are two-time former WWE RAW Tag Team Champions. They also held the DSW Tag Team Titles twice, the NYWC Tag Team Titles twice, and the OVW Southern Tag Team Titles once.
On a related note, Trey Miguel and Black Taurus have advanced in the tournament for the vacant Impact X-Division Title.
Last night’s Before The Impact episode saw Taurus defeat Laredo Kid. Miguel then defeated Alan Angels to advance.
Taurus will now face the winner of next Thursday’s BTI match between the returning PJ Black and Yuya Uemura, while Miguel will face the winner of next Thursday’s match between Mike Bailey and Kenny King.
Impact Over Drive is scheduled for Friday, November 8 from Old Forester’s Paristown Hall in Louisville, Kentucky. The event will air on Impact Plus and on YouTube for Ultimate Insiders members. Below is the updated card:
