Finals set for Impact number one contender's tournament

Impact Wrestling’s number one contender’s tournament is down to its final two wrestlers.

Trey Miguel and Ace Austin will face off in the finals of the tournament on next Tuesday’s episode of Impact. The semifinals aired on this week’s show, with Miguel defeating Michael Elgin and Austin defeating Hernandez.

Miguel and Elgin’s semifinal match was the main event of this week’s Impact. The finish of the match was Miguel pinning Elgin with a jackknife cover after Sami Callihan played mind games with Elgin and caused a distraction. Elgin defeated Callihan in the first round of the tournament.

Austin replaced Ken Shamrock in the tournament after an angle where Elgin attacked Shamrock. 

The winner of Miguel vs. Austin will challenge Tessa Blanchard for the Impact World Championship. Blanchard was supposed to defend her title against Elgin and Eddie Edwards in a triple threat match at Rebellion last month, but neither Blanchard nor Edwards were able to attend last month’s Impact tapings due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Austin lost the X-Division Championship to Willie Mack at Rebellion. While X-Division Champion, Austin had a feud with Miguel.
