First matches for January 5th Impact and Genesis announced


With Impact Wrestling doing "holiday specials" for the final two weeks of 2020, they gave their fans something to look forward to as they announced matches for both their January 2021 debut and for Genesis a few days later.

On the first new Impact on January 5th, Sami Callihan will renew his rivalry with Eddie Edwards. The two have been at odds again for several weeks with Callihan challenging Edwards Tuesday after Edwards' wife Alisha lost to Tenille Dashwood.

Their feud dates back to 2018 when Callihan accidentally injured Edwards' eye with an errant baseball bat shot, causing Edwards to suffer a broken nose and broken bones in his face.

Impact also announced that self-proclaimed TNA World Champion Moose will face Willie Mack in an I Quit match on Genesis, set for January 9th on Impact Plus. The two have been feuding since November and after a pull-apart brawl Tuesday, Mack challenged him with the match and stipulation.
