Former Impact World Champion Moose will take on Ace Austin on this Thursday's Impact on AXS -- partially thanks to the antics of Bully Ray.
Austin was recently taken out in the back prior to match, rendering him unable to compete. He and fellow Bullet Club member Chris Bey accused Bully Ray of doing it with Ray then claiming it was likely Moose who attacked Austin instead.
Moose later came out to confront Ray during Tommy Dreamer's match with Bey. Bey was tripped and he thought it was Ray, but in a clip shared on social media, he learned it was Moose making them think it was Moose who attacked Austin.
Here's the updated lineup for Thursday which includes an all-star tag team match and the final two quarterfinal bouts in the X-Division title tournament:
- Kenny King vs. Mike Bailey X-Division title tournament quarterfinal
- Sami Callihan vs. Eric Young
- Aussie Open vs. Frankie Kazarian & Josh Alexander
- Moose vs. Ace Austin
- BTI pre-show: Yuya Uemura vs. PJ Black X-Division title tournament quarterfinal
On Tuesday, Impact announced their final streaming special of the year will be Throwback Throwdown 3 on Friday, December 3rd. The show is being put on their fictional IPWF promotion (Impact Provincial Wrestling Federation) where Impact wrestlers compete as different retro characters.
The show is being taped as part of WrestleCade weekend in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, on Friday, November 25th.
