Matt Cardona got his first taste of Impact gold Thursday as he defeated inaugural Digital Media Champion Jordynne Grace for the title.

Cardona made the challenge two weeks ago, saying he was the original Internet Champion which was the inspiration for the Digital Media title. 

The story of the match is that it was Cardona's first intergender bout and he had issues going after Grace as a result. Eventually, he took advantage of a distracted referee, hitting Grace with a chair and Radio Silence to get the pin and win the belt.

Later, Cardona was interviewed and said it was his biggest day after winning the gold. When asked about what Chelsea Green would think about how he won it, he told interviewer Gia Miller to instead ask ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham was it was like to be married to a loser.

Grace became the first champion at October's Bound for Glory, winning a six-way tournament final match. She had defended the title successfully four times.

The belt was created to be defended on the company's social media channels.
