History has been made! Titles are one of the easiest ways in the world to advance a wrestling storyline. It works so easily because anyone, whether they are a long term fan or not, can understand what is going on: someone is the best and someone else wants to do become the new champion to prove that they are the best. The title match is on and everything should work. A title change can be very interesting for a company and we had two of them in one night.

Impact Wrestling has been in a weird place over the last few months as they brought in a variety of stars who had been released from WWE and then kind of fell off for a bit. They were revitalized by AEW showing up and bringing in some of their stars. New Japan has done the same and now some of those wrestlers are making quite the impact (pun intended) on the promotion.

Two title changes took place during Saturday night’s Sacrifice special on Impact Plus. First, Ace Austin defeated TJP to become the X-Division Champion for the second time in his career. Later in the show, New Japan’s FinJuice defeated the Good Brothers to become the new Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions for the first time. There is no word on if this will affect the Good Brothers appearing in AEW.

These were some big matches. Check out how the matches went:

TJP FIGHTS FOR HIS LIFE in X-Division War with Ace Austin! | IMPACT Plus Sacrifice 2021 Highlights

NJPW's FinJuice Battle Good Brothers for the GOLD! | IMPACT Plus Sacrifice 2021 Highlights

Opinion: If nothing else, Impact Wrestling has done a very good job of making these Impact Plus specials feel like a big deal. There were several of them which never worked because the shows did not feel important but the multiple title changes both here and at previous shows make a difference. The new champions are both interesting so hopefully everything gets a boost going forward.
