At Wednesday night’s Impact Wrestling taping, Austin Aries returned to the company and defeated Eli Drake to win the Impact Wrestling championship.
Eli Drake and Chris Adonis were holding a “Facts of Life” segment when Aries interfered and challenged Drake to a match with Aries winning the title.
The match is scheduled to air in the next couple of weeks, according to Impact’s website.
This would be Aries’ third stint with the promotion after working for the company from 2005-2007 as both “Austin Aries” and “Austin Starr” and returning from 2011 until 2015.
Aries was released from his WWE contract this past July.
