In the mist of their on-screen partnership with All Elite Wrestling unfolding, along with the build to their Hard To Kill pay-per-view on January 16th, IMPACT Wrestling is also setting up matches for their IMPACT Plus special titled ‘Genesis’ on January 9th. The 1/9 show will see the return of the Super X Cup tournament which has only had three of its kind. The first was in 2003 and won by Chris Sabin, followed by the 2005 winner Samoa Joe and Dezmond Xavier won the tournament in 2017.

The talents of IMPACT’s X Division will be a part of the tourney and participants will be announced soon. This announcement is coming off the heels of former IMPACT X Division Champion Chris Bey competing in New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Super J-Cup that was won by El Phantasmo.

In addition to the Super X Cup, Willie Mack is taking on Moose in a ‘I Quit’ match. POST Wrestling has a review up on the site of the latest episode of IMPACT on AXS on-which this match was made official.

There are currently two matches scheduled for Hard To Kill and those are listed as followed:

* IMPACT Knockouts Tag Team Championship Tournament Final: Kiera Hogan & Tasha Steelz vs. TBD
* Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows) vs. Rich Swann & Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin)
