And so, it ends for AEW. The wrestling world has changed a lot in recent years and those changes are likely to continue for a long time to come. There have been a lot of shifts and moves throughout the industry and some of them have been very interesting. You have seen promotions working together more and more, but now one of those arrangements is coming to an end.
According to Ringsidenews.com, the working relationship between AEW and Impact Wrestling is scheduled to end after this weekend’s Bound For Glory pay per view. The two promotions have been sharing talent throughout the course of the year, with various AEW wrestlers appearing in Impact Wrestling and the Good Brothers and Don Callis appearing in AEW. There is no word on why the arrangement is ending and nothing to suggest any bad blood. AEW’s Christian Cage lost the Impact Wrestling World Title to Josh Alexander at Bound For Glory.
The partnership did some great things. Check out some of the collaborations:
Opinion: I’m not sure what is going on between the two sides and hopefully nothing went wrong. That being said, I can understand why AEW might not be interested in continuing. It did not seem like they really needed Impact Wrestling, so maybe they are focusing on their own product rather than someone else. Impact has improved so much as well, and they should be just fine on their own.
