It was nice while it lasted. There are a lot of wrestling promotions in the world today and some of them are going to get some more attention than others. Two of the biggest promotions going at the moment are WWE and AEW, which are rather different in how they interact with other companies. AEW is much more friendly about working with another promotion, and now we know a bit more about that.

Last week, Impact Wrestling presented its annual Bound For Glory event, which featured a main event of AEW’s Christian Cage defending the Impact Wrestling World Title against Josh Alexander in a losing effort. The show was the end of a working relationship between AEW and Impact Wrestling that had been in effect for the better part of a year. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there is a chance that the two companies could work together again, but Cage will not be returning for a rematch. There is no word on if the Good Brothers will be appearing on AEW programming again in the future.

The partnership worked well for both. Check out how things went:

Watch the Bucks and Good Brothers Tag for the first time in 5 Years | AEW Dynamite

Christian Cage BACK FOR THE PEEPS! | IMPACT! Highlights August 19, 2021

Kenny Omega LAID OUT by Sami Callihan! | IMPACT! Highlights July 8, 2021

Opinion: While I’m not sure how much good this did for both promotions, it was certainly an interesting way to go and something I would not have seen coming. That made for a fun few months and ultimately, that is about as good as it was going to be. AEW doesn’t need Impact Wrestling and hopefully Impact Wrestling got something out of the partnership. I wouldn’t be complaining about seeing it pick up again, so they must have done something right.

What did you think of the partnership? Which other promotions should team up? Let us know in the comments below.
