Steve Maclin Defeats Kushida, Wins Vacant IMPACT World Title

During tonight’s Rebellion Pay Per View, Steve Maclin went through an absolute WAR with Kushida in the wrestling ring. Steve is all too familiar with real war being a United States Marine, but this was a different arena. Maclin overcame the odds and became the IMPACT World Champion for the first time!

Maclin was originally supposed to get his shot against Josh Alexander as the World Champion, however, Josh revealed just a few weeks ago that he had sustained an injury that required surgery and he would have to vacate the titles, which he did officially on the April 6th episode of IMPACTonAXSTV.

Myself and the staff at Bodyslam would like to extend our utmost congratulations to the NEW IMPACT WORLD CHAMPION…STEVE MACLIN!!

We definitely look forward to seeing Maclin progress even further in his career.
