As we covered last night from the first night of Impact Wrestling tapings, this first set of tapings under the management team of Scott D’Amore and Don Callis are looking to inject some new blood into the Impact Wrestling brand that suffered some growing pains under their first year of ownership under Anthem Entertainment following years of mismanagement under previous regimes. The biggest news was the shocking return of Austin Aries to the company – and winning the renamed Impact World Championship – but we saw a few surprises in the Knockouts Division, such as the long awaited debut of Kiera Hogan. Tonight’s tapings carried on, with some equally big surprises. Prior to the tapings, Impact announced the signing of Brian Cage to their roster.

He spent a couple years working on his craft before signing with the WWE in 2008, where he worked their developmental in Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) as Kris Logan. He worked their for nearly two years, before being released at the end of 2009. He debuted with PWG in 2010 and since then has become one of indie wrestling’s most celebrated powerhouses, working with Lucha Underground, Pro Wrestling NOAH, AAA, EVOLVE, WrestleCircus, Bar Wrestling, Championship Wrestling From Hollywood, AAW, and much more.
