Fatal Four Way

The winner of Christian Cage and Brian Myers will not have to wait long to find their next opponent will be. Sami Callihan, Moose, Ace Austin, and Chris Sabin will square off in a fatal four-way match at Emergence. The winner will walk out of the 2021 edition of Emergence the number one contender for the IMPACT World title. Callihan and Moose both unsuccessfully challenged Omega for the belt at Slammiversary and Against All Odds respectively.

Both would love nothing more than to have an opportunity at the winner of the main event of Emergence and have a shot at the IMPACT World Title. The same can be said for Ace Austin and Chris Sabin. Sabin is a former TNA World Heavyweight Champion and would love to add the IMPACT World title to his resume. Austin has never held the IMPACT World title but would love to add it to his list of accomplishments.

Emergence 2021 Main Event: IMPACT World Title

Christian Cage shocked Kenny Omega when he defeated “The Best Bout Machine” for the IMPACT World Title. The match was the first-ever match on AEW Rampageand was made just two days prior on Dynamite. Cage now returns to IMPACT where he was a regular performer from 2005-2008 to defend the belt. Cage is a former two-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion from his previous time with IMPACT. He faces Brian Myers, who became the number one contender after winning the Number One Contenders Battle Royal on IMPACT a couple of weeks ago.

The two did not waste any time getting acquainted as Myers and Sam Beale interrupted Cage yesterday on IMPACT as he returned to the IMPACT Zone for the first time since his one-night appearance in 2012. Cage came out to the ring to retire the TNA World Heavyweight title, making the IMPACT World title the standalone major championship in the promotion. Myers and Beale interrupted Cage, adding fuel to the fire for their match at Emergence. Will Cage retain the title, or will Myers shock the world the same way Cage did just a week ago on Rampage?
