The X-Division Championship changed hands on Impact Wrestling's final Impact Plus special of 2020.

At Final Resolution on Saturday night, TJP used his former Manik persona to answer Rohit Raju's Defeat Rohit challenge and pin Raju to win the X-Division Championship. TJP also previously held the X-Division title as Manik in 2013.

In storyline, TJP couldn't challenge for the X-Division Championship again as long as Raju was champion. Scott D'Amore said no one named TJP could challenge for the title and told TJP to think about what Dusty Rhodes would do.

Suicide answered the Defeat Rohit challenge on Impact two weeks ago. Raju thought it was TJP under the Suicide mask. He agreed to face Suicide but made it a non-title match. Raju unmasked Suicide during the match, but TJP's music then hit and he walked out to the stage. Raju turned around and was pinned by Suicide, who was Crazzy Steve.

TJP tweeted after winning the X-Division title: "I knew I packed a little heavy before leaving for the #SJcup earlier...looks like I’m packing heavy going home too... #AndNew X Division Champion On to the next one... #ImpactWrestling #FinalResolution #NJPW #SuperJcup"

Raju wrote after his loss: "ABSOLUTE BULLSH*T!!! IT WAS A CONSPIRACY FROM THE START!! WE KNOW WHO'S UNDER THAT DAMN MASK!!"

Raju had been X-Division Champion since defeating Chris Bey and TJP in a triple threat match for the title at Emergence night one this August.
