Christian Cage & Brian Myers Segment 

Christian Cage: You guys are gonna make me blush. Listen, it’s damn good to be back in the IMPACT zone after 9 long years. I mean, the nostalgia, it’s hitting me like a brick. We got these guys over here throwing up the Double C’s like back in the day. And listen, it’s not lost on me that I’m standing before you as the IMPACT World Champion. And even though I wrestle for AEW, it was an honor to take these titles from Kenny Omega and bring them back to the IMPACT Zone, where they belong. You see, at one point in time in 2005, I walked out of the biggest wrestling company in the world. I took a chance on myself. And IMPACT, they took a chance on me. They gave me the opportunity to step in this ring, night in and night out, and up my stock, up my value, and compete in main events and for championships. That’s all I ever wanted.

Like I said, this is surreal for me, thank you. Appreciate that. Now, sitting here talking about my history with IMPACT Wrestling, it’s got me thinking. This isn’t really about my history anymore. And maybe it’s time I had some conversations with Scott D’Amore and the other IMPACT executives. And we all agree, as much as this TNA Championships means, maybe it’s time to set this aside, to respectfully retire this championship. Because this isn’t about my history anymore, this isn’t about the past, this is about the here and now, this is about the future.

And this IMPACT World Championship represents that. For me, standing here right now as the champion, and for every one of those professional wrestlers in the back, that are hoping to having this spot someday, it means a lot. So, as of this moment going forward, The IMPACT World Championship will be recognized as the biggest prize in this company. The lineage of this TNA Championship will be ingrained in my soul forever and ingrained in the annals of this company, forever. So it’s now time I respectfully hand this off and say goodbye to the TNA Championship. Now, as the IMPACT Champion, I guess it’s time to get down to a little bit of business.

– Brain Myers comes out to interrupt Cage. Myers says that he’s not here to talk about the past. He goes over his accomplishments over the past year. Myers says the title that’s around Cage’s waist belongs to the most professional wrestler.
